Stokehouse Weekday Lunch

The Perfect Places for a Long ‘Working’ Lunch

Ahhh…the art of the long ‘working’ lunch. Where colleagues become friends, where that one hour can turn into three and where you learn more about Tony in accounts than you ever hoped to find out. Here at eatSouthBank, we’re pretty much masters of the LWL (just don’t tell our boss!)…

For those who aren’t as well-versed on the subject, we suggest you read ahead to determine the perfect spot for you to ‘take care of business’ over your midday meal…

If you’re in the mood for stylish sophistication…
If you want your lunch served with a side of luxe, look no further than The Jetty for the ultimate in riverside dining. Perched above River Quay Green, The Jetty delivers the goods when it comes to lunch. Our pick? Get your share on with their delicious Moreton Bay Bug rolls, roast pork belly or lamb kofte with chickpeas, paprika yogurt and mint. This is the perfect place to sip away at your cocktail and watch the sweet sight of the sun set on the working week.

If you want to close some deals…..
The sweeping views of the river are enough to put anyone in a good mood. Take a seat at Stokehouse Q and sample their delicious and elegant offerings such as the royal blue and saltbush dumpling with dried lime XO, tofu and seaweed dashi or the Fraser Isle spanner crab ravioli. Alternatively, enjoy one of the most affordable gourmet two-course lunch deals going round town, which includes a glass of wine for only $45 from Monday to Thursday. One things for sure, whether it’s a client or a co-worker you’re trying to impress, the stunning views paired with Stokehouse Q’s delectable food offerings are guaranteed to seal whatever deal you’re trying to get over the line.

If you’re not planning on going back to work…
If you’re planning on stretching your ‘working’ lunch into a ‘working’ dinner- then you need to get yourself booked into Next Door Kitchen and Bar. There’s no one better to aid you in the transition from midday to sunset than these guys! There extensive menu offerings (think crispy fish taco’s and polenta and parmesan chips) provide the perfect segue into the pm. And as for fun? There’s nowhere better to cause a little mischief with your workmates than this place. Just don’t blame us come Monday when you have to front up to the office!

If you want to take your taste buds on a trip…
French Martini know their stuff when it comes to authentic French food, which is lucky, because they just so happen to be the perfect accompaniment to a ‘working’ lunch. If you’re mad about fromage, escargot and duck pate, then the menu at Little Stanley Street’s favourite French restaurant won’t disappoint! With an a la carte and degustation menu to choose from, we guarantee you’ll be spoiled for choice.
