Gum Bistro – Opening Soon
Although we were saddened to hear that beloved West End restaurant Pasta Club was shutting its doors, our moods improved when we heard that a talented chef and sommelier combo were taking custodianship of the eatery’s Boundary Street space. Together they’re opening Gum Bistro – a restaurant putting Queensland produce in the spotlight alongside a broad-reaching range of wines. Lachlan Matheson and Phil Poussart will be opening Gum Bistro in mid-to-late March, with plans to offer a seasonally shifting menu that will swing from snacks to substantials. While menu details are still being kept close to the chest, we can confirm that Phil’s wine list will feature approximately 60 drops to start, encompassing vino from Australia, France, Hungary, Austria, Germany and Slovenia. A second list of vintage drops housed in temperature-controlled storage will also be available alongside a small list of classic cocktails. As for the space, the duo are currently hard at work exchanging Pasta Club’s dark interior aesthetic for a brighter palette of white and green. Read all about Gum Bistro’s plans here.
