Here’s some big news for fanatics of the fare at Rick Shores in Burleigh Heads. The team behind this esteemed venue is putting work in on Happy Valley – a new multi-faceted eatery on Warner Street in Fortitude Valley – this time taking on modern Chinese cuisine. This as-yet-unnamed restaurant will reportedly serve up scrumptious servings of dim sum and yum cha, with a menu overseen by Rick Shores head chef Jake Pregnell. The restaurant will be situated in a new laneway precinct occupying the old Troubadour laneway, and will boast an 80-patron capacity restaurant and an upstairs area with space for 40 more and a private dining area. A minimalist and sophisticated aesthetic will encompass the interior, while a bar will open on to the laneway itself, where patrons will be able to relax in a beer garden. The bar will also serve up a concise array of dim sum and bar snacks to enjoy with your drink of choice. Good things come to those who wait, and we’ll need to be patient until at least March.
