Italian Street Kitchen West End
In 2021 alone, West Village added Lebanese cuisine, burgers and poke to its dining offering. In September the precinct will added home-style Italian to the mix when Italian Street Kitchen opened the doors to its second Brisbane. The laid-back concept, which is owned and operated by Seagrass Boutique Hospitality Group, opened its first location at Gasworks in 2017, luring in diners with a menu of Italian-inspired street food elevated with some modern twists and authentic ingredients sourced from Italian providores. Locals are enamoured with Italian Street Kitchen’s range of eats, which includes the likes of traditional Sardinian gnocchetti with pork-and-fennel sausage, light-and-crispy pizzas (with dough risen over a 48-hour period), panzerotti (fried pizza dough folded and filled with mortadella, buffalo mozzarella and Sardinian pecorino cheese), porchetta, slow-cooked beef meatballs in sugo and Black Diamond striploin bistecca. Vegan and vegetarian options also feature alongside a host of lunch deals. The beverage menu is loaded with luxe libations, from inventive signature concoctions and classic Italian cocktails to regionally inspired twists on the spritz and a wine list boasting dozens of bottles to choose from.
