It only took a few weeks for Hellenika at The Calile to become a certified dining institution, and now, less than a year on from the restaurant’s opening, owners Simon Gloftis and Theo Kampolis have announced another culinary concept for the James Street precinct. SK Steak & Oysters will be opening at The Calile before year’s end, and will deliver a considered take on the classic bar and grill. The idea for a steakhouse has been rattling around Simon’s brain since 2010 – long before Hellenika took the coast and Brisbane by storm. When a vacant tenancy at The Calile’s Wandoo Street end was offered to Simon, the timing finally seemed right to bring this idea into the world. Richards & Spence has been recruited to help actualise the restaurant’s design, emphasising the high ceilings and phenomenal lighting to create a restaurant imbued with an air of timelessness. SK Steak & Oysters’ layout will incorporate intimate booth seating, an open-plan kitchen, an oyster-shucking station and even a baby grand piano. As for the fare, head chef Kelvin Andrews is working with Simon to craft a menu that incorporates top-notch protein and quality seafood. Although meaty at its core, the restaurant’s menu won’t be weighed down with excess options – three cuts (eye fillet, scotch fillet and sirloin) will be available in your choice of grade, weight and doneness, backed by a selection of sides and a seafood section (raw and grilled). Quality produce is key, and SK Steak & Oysters is working with farmers and suppliers to source the best morsels locally and across Australia. The bar offering also takes a straightforward approach, serving classic cocktails done well. The wine list is still in development, but diners can expect a strong list of champagnes to feature. The build on SK Steak & Oysters is currently underway, with its official opening tentatively slated for late November or early December.
