From dry-aged and spice-rubbed, to grain-fed and grass-fed, no matter what your steak preference, The City certainly is the mecca for beef in Brisbane. Here are our picks of restaurants that provide delicious and juicy steaks that will melt in your mouth - the perfect way to warm up this Winter.
Kingsleys Steak & Crabhouse
With spectacular views and a combination of indoor & outdoor seatings, Kingsleys Steak & Crabhouse offers a wide range of high quaility cuts of steak combined with fresh seafood, including Alaskan king crab and mudcrab. Kingsleys philosophy is simply to produce the most premium quality beef, which only needs to be lightly seasoned and char grilled to the customers specification, whilst allowing true flavour and texture to be appreciated.
Cha Cha Char Wine Bar & Grill
Cha Cha Char Wine Bar & Grill is a stylish, contemporary restaurant specialising in high quality, cooked to perfection steaks.The consistent quality of the meat offered is substantially due to the fact that the restaurateur John Kilroy is a nationally recognised beef judge.
While enjoying sweeping views of the Brisbane River, you can peruse a menu unlike any other: each meat's breed, paddock address, age (12 months to 30 months and older), size (200g to 600g), accompaniments and diet (grass fed/grain fed) is provided. The menu also features shots of rare, medium rare, medium and well done steaks to help you choose your preferred style.
Moo Moo Wine Bar & Grill
Moo Moo breaks down the barriers of a normal steakhouse by losing the overtly masculine vibe that has long been a trademark of its genre. With an eclectic mix of sleek, refined interior spaces with a luxurious, industrial edge and striking lighting, Moo Moo proves that steak can actually be sexy.
Owner Steven Adams elevates the concept of a steakhouse by delivering a menu celebrating fresh seasonal flavours from family farms and artisanal producers. The highlight of the menu includes a specialty beef menu which has been handpicked by Steven using produce from the best breeders in the Australia and includes grass fed, grain fed and organic beef.
Vintaged Bar + Grill
Beyond the grand façade of the iconic, Harry Seidler-designed Hilton Brisbane, ascend to Vintaged Bar + Grill on the sixth floor, where dramatic down lights create a theatrical mood for stylish gatherings. Contemporary furnishings, clean lines and vivid colours reflect the energy and attention to detail that’s maintained in our bustling kitchen. Flames dance on the magnificent Open Grill as premium ingredients are prepared to perfection. Behind it, an illuminated, Himalayan rock salt wall is a striking backdrop to the dry aged meat cabinet, with its impressive array of fine cuts.
