Earlier this year, acclaimed fine-dining institution Aria officially shuttered after ten years of operation. After diners came to terms with the closure, much discussion has erupted over what will take over Aria’s prime location at Eagle Street Pier. We can reveal that the space will soon be home to Rico Bar & Dining – a multi-faceted eatery from the crew behind George’s Paragon and Massimo Restaurant & Bar. The concept will reportedly deliver an offering that fuses Australian, Spanish and Latin flavours. Brisbane-based collective Clui Design (the team behind Massimo’s pristine fit-out) has been engaged to craft the venue’s interior, which The Courier-Mail has reported will be reminiscent of a “light, bright, multi-level, indoor-outdoor eatery with seating for 260”. Rico (translated from Spanish to mean ‘delicious’) will look to offer a modern, vibrant and affordable experience for diners, with a broad appeal targeting everyone from CBD workers to residents and tourists. The menu offering will feature the likes of freshly shucked oysters, delicious chargrilled meats and seafood, with an a la carte service, banquet feasts and tapas menus to cater for all hunger levels. Stay tuned for more details on Rico Bar & Dining as its October opening approaches.
