Rockpool Dining Group Opens 2nd Burger Project
On the Dining Strip of Edward Street
Rockpool Dining Group and Neil Perry AM will serve their first house-made burgers on the busy shopping and dining strip of Edward Street on Tuesday, 20 June when Burger Project opens in the heart of the CBD. Neil will be in the kitchen from 11am on launch day, manning the burners and steering hundreds of house made burgers into the hands of customers who have eagerly awaited the expansion of the popular burger brand in Brisbane.
The group’s twelfth Burger Project in the country, and second in Brisbane, is similar in look and feel to its counterparts, sporting a smart-casual interior designed by leading architect Grant Cheyne.
Ideally located a stone’s throw from the iconic Stock Exchange Hotel, and open until 9pm Sunday to Wednesday and until late Thursday to Saturday, Burger Project Edward Street accommodates 134 diners, including 64 in a stylish outdoor garden terrace overlooking Charlotte Street.
The venue has an eye-catching glass frontage, large open kitchen, and signature murals that pay tribute to the group’s sustainable philosophy and devotion to the highest quality ingredients.
A quick pick-up counter enables customers ordering ahead via the Burger Project app to skip the queue and collect their meal on the run.
The menu features 14 hand-crafted burgers showcasing 36-month, grass-fed Cape Grim beef from Tasmania, free-range Lilydale chicken, as well as a delicious vegetarian crumbed confit mushroom option.
Chips can be spiced up with either chipotle or Sichuan salt, while house-churned soft-serve is the hero of a range of ice cream desserts.
Classic shakes, sodas and iced teas are all shaken, spritzed and brewed in-house, in keeping with Burger Project’s commitment to making everything from scratch. Burger Project has partnered with Urban Craft Brewing Co to offer an expanded range of draught and bottled beers, including rotating taps of seasonal small batch brews.
Neil said the prime position on Edward Street made Burger Project a convenient lunch destination for shoppers and office workers, as well as a great place to start or end a night out.
“Burger Project will be a drawcard for Brisbane corporates, foodies, families and the late night crowd, as it really caters for all ages and occasions, with a late night closing time Thursday through to Saturday.”
“Our fast-paced production will suit office workers by day and bar-hoppers by night, with customers rewarded with premium grade ingredients and the option to linger over a few craft brews in our outdoor terrace.”
“We’re thrilled to be expanding our footprint in Brisbane and to be creating another 16 jobs in this vibrant city and spirited community.”
