Forming an exciting gastronome adventure, restaurant-focused locale Gerard’s Bistro is transforming James Street’s food scene with an exotic fusion of Southern European cuisine and North African spice. The creative minds behind Lychee Lounge and Laruche have an inherent aesthetic awareness, carefully curating the interior of Gerard’s Bistro into a venue that inspires and excites. Mismatched wooden planks frame an open kitchen, where delicious wafts of foodstuffs float about hungry diners, permeating anticipation. Seasonal local produce is celebrated throughout the menu. Executive chef Adam Wolfers is executing an a la carte and set menu, offering the likes of woodfired bagel with buffalo curd, wood-roasted tiger prawns with smoked whey, Westholme wagyu bavette with smoked harissa and kohlrabi, Noosa scallop with brown butter and Aleppo pepper, black barley tabouli with sumac and tomato, and Kishk cheesecake with warqa and pistachio.
