When you walk into the Nickel Kitchen and Bar you’ll be drawn to the amazing chandelier which is made from wine glasses. A nod to the owners’ famous Craggy Range winery in New Zealand.
The décor is opulent industrial meets art deco monochrome. The black and white photography on the walls are taken from their family owned and operated winery. There is a huge bookcase with wine bottles and off to the side is a massive bar.
The menu is inspired by New York and the owner TJ Peabody is aiming to bring the concept of the brunch trend to Brisbane. In America brunch isn’t just a meal between breakfast and lunch but an all-day affair.
The ingredients are sourced from among the best of Australian produce, including chickens are from the Barossa Valley and line caught fish of the day. The menu is designed to be egalitarian with a snack menu available all day. There are classic dishes with a little bit of a modern twist. The classic Caesar salad is made at the table.
Nickel aims to bring back memories of dining out from your childhood, when you dressed up and went out with your parents for special occasions.
Nickel Kitchen and Bar is located at 757 Ann Street in the Fortitude Valley.
