A Queensland first, Australia’s much loved culinary crew are laying down roots up north with the launch of Three Blue Ducks, at W Brisbane, this April 2018.
Renowned for serving up home-grown goodness in abundance at their three supreme locations across New South Wales, Three Blue Ducks are set to make waves in Australia’s hospitality scene with the unveiling of their first Queensland venue at W Brisbane – one of the most coveted hotel openings in Australia this year.
Mixing Queensland’s vibrant yet laid back culture with their legendary paddock to plate ethos, expect fresh, local and honest cuisine showcasing bold flavours and colours at Three Blue Ducks’ new home in Brisbane. The restaurant will open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, with an evolving seasonal menu featuring the best of Queensland and northern New South Wales produce - Brisbane’s newest dining destination for lovers of real food, stand-out coffee, local craft beers, crisp wines and original cocktails.
Guests will experience the Three Blue Ducks in a relaxed setting, overlooking the iconic Brisbane River. The kitchen will feature a wood fire oven, a rotisserie and charcoal pit and a cold seafood section showcasing Moreton Bay bugs, Spanner Crab and oysters. The menu will feature well-known dishes from the Ducks including Spanner Crab scramble with green mango, bean shoot salad, house made siracha and cashews; coal roasted lamb; and the corn fritters with guacamole, fermented cabbage, jalapeno, herb salad, labneh and poached eggs.
Creating a setting that stays true to Three Blue Ducks grass roots dining spirit, the design features earthy tones and raw materials, complemented by pops of greenery and colonial heritage channelled through Queenslander VJ wall panels.
“When approached by W Hotel to embark on a Three Blue Ducks venture in Brisbane, it was important to us to ensure that we shared the same values and sustainable business practices”, said Jeff Bennett, Co-Owner Three Blue Ducks. “We share the same ethos for quality and we’ll be using locally sourced produce that is farmed ethically. Although our current venues greatly differ in aesthetic, our philosophy and ethos remain very much the same and we can't wait to work alongside W Brisbane with views over the Brisbane River.”
“Brisbane is craving a venue like this - vibrant, honest, fresh and local with stellar views. It’s going to be a hotspot for an indulgent weekend brekky and tempting lunch or dinner in the city, a place where you feel at home amongst friends and family to share delicious dishes within a lively environment”, said Haldon Philp General Manager W Brisbane. “We’re both non-traditional brands with a shared vision of showcasing local, real food and drinks, which makes this partnership the perfect match for W Brisbane’s signature dining experience”.
