OPENING SOON – COAST Beach Bar & Kitchen

Located on the first floor of the new Meriton Suites in Surfers Paradise and featuring unobstructed views of the ocean, COAST Beach Bar & Kitchen is set to add a sophisticated new dining experience to the city’s culinary landscape. The superlative $2.5 million venue will be the latest from husband-and-wife hospitality duo Justin and Elizabeth Allie (Longboards Laidback Eatery and Bar, The Fish Shak and Gourmet en Counter). Assuming the coveted role of head chef will be Rhett Willis, who you eagle-eyed viewers might recognise from MasterChef: The Professionals television series. Backed by over two decades of culinary experience in some of the country’s best venues, including Jellyfish and Cha Cha Char, Rhett has curated a menu that showcases locally sourced modern Australian cuisine with flare. A hallmark of the kitchen will undoubtedly be the traditional Spanish Josper wood and charcoal oven that infuses food with a signature smokey, charcoal flavour. Among the venue’s stand-out dishes will be an in-house-aged cut of beef smoked at the table and duck-liver-parfait stuffed brioche doughnuts.
