Bite Sip Stroll, the unique flavour filled dining event is returning to Fortitude Valley on Saturday 4th August, 2018. The exquisite 2018 lineup of restaurants consists of Gerard’s Bistro, Gerard’s Bar, Happy Boy and Bucci. All four restaurants are located in the James St precinct, Brisbane’s foremost retail and lifestyle precinct.
Inspired by the dining culture of Europe, the afternoon gourmet exploration involves guests visiting four of the most awarded restaurants in town, enjoying distinctive dishes prepared by the head chefs of each establishment with wine to match. Bite Sip Stroll will be a three and a half hour food and wine stroll commencing at 11:45 am, and includes a sparkling upon arrival followed by food and wine pairings at each restaurant. The afternoon of top class dining is an ideal opportunity to interact and impress, be it with a partner or a group of friends.
Gerard’s Bistro Head Chef Ben Williamson, who was awarded the 2017 Chef of the Year in the QLD Good Food Guide, is noted for weaving a Middle Eastern thread through his menu with African and European influences adding exciting punctuations. Gerard’s Bar is Williamson’s Spanish inspired offering renowned for its charcuterie. Happy Boy and Bucci will be joining Bite Sip Stroll for the first time. Happy Boy established itself as a Spring Hill institution before moving to a larger light soaked space in the fashionable James St precinct early this year. Happy Boy is a trendy wine-bar meets Chinese restaurant with a focus on authentic provincial Chinese cuisine. Bucci is an iconic Jame Street hotspot. The light and airy space has a chic fit out with huge windows opening onto bustling James St. This Italian gem focuses on fresh, local produce to produce a light and innovative menu.
