The laneways around The Calile Hotel in James Street are already awash with some seriously impressive eateries, but there’s about to be one more, with news that an internationally acclaimed Michelin-starred chef is set to swing open the doors of Beaux Rumble soon.
Fusing classic French Beaux-Arts design with modern Australian woodfired cuisine but with a focus on seafood and plant-based dishes, and set to officially open in November, Beaux Rumble will be the culinary home of Michelin-starred Chef Alan Wise, who has returned home to Australia from New York for the role. Chef Wise is one of only a handful of Australian chefs who have Michelin status, and the fact that he’s decided to call Brisbane home is giving us more than a little thrill.
Based in Ada Lane, Beaux Rumble will be open from early morning into the evening, with a full New York style brunch menu one of the standouts—but don’t think eggs benedict and bagels, because Chef Wise has other ideas.
“Dining at Beaux Rumble will be a ‘taste adventure’, and while the design features a huge custom grill and woodfire oven, what is prepared over and in it respectively, is not what Brisbane diners will expect. The fire and smoke will add extra layers and levels of flavour to what is predominantly an ocean and plant-based menu,” he said.
“Having been exposed to global food initiatives and the vision of New York dining, I’ll be leading the kitchen team in new flavour combinations, platings and menu development. It’s very exciting, I can’t wait for Brisbane to taste the food of Beaux Rumble.”
Word is that the venue will be inspired by New York’s Grand Central Station, complete with the ornate vaulted metal, marble features, archways and refined style of the iconic 1913 building, with a vibrant terrace, two private dining rooms and a terrace for rooftop vibes.
Basically, you’ll want to be one of the first to stop in and check it out when it finally opens—stay tuned for updates.
