The Walnut Restaurant and Lounge Bar, in the Royal on the Park Hotel Brisbane, is shaking things up with the introduction of a unique new a la carte menu, and announcement of new direction with Executive Chef Rhian Rodrigues.
The Walnut Restaurant, known for its club-like feel, has released a new a la carte menu featuring a unique twist of modern Australian and classical French cuisine, with dishes sure to pique the interest of food-lovers and restaurateurs.
The new menu comes with the announcement of new Executive Chef Rodrigues, who recently won the Bronze Jimmy Sawyer Trophy at The Australian Culinary Federation Salon Culinaire.
Rodrigues artistically combines the classical skills of French cooking, with zesty local produce and innovative gastronomy to create a truly unique menu.
“Whilst my roots are in Modern French Cuisine, much of my food is influenced by the style and flavor of my time spent in the sub-topics. I hope to bring this depth and experience to The Walnut Restaurant,” Rodrigues said.
The Walnut Restaurant culinary team has had a change in direction over the last months, with the introduction of an environmental sustainability program, professional development and mentoring program, new local suppliers and new on-site herb garden.
“The use of local suppliers and freshly gown herbs is very important to me, to create fresh seasonal menus that reflect the tastes and sensations of the local community,” he said.
With all of the changes and innovations in store for The Walnut Restaurant, this is a spot to watch on the Brisbane dining scene.
The new a la carte menu in the Walnut Restaurant and conference and events menus for the Royal on the Park Hotel are now available.
