Former Esquire partner, Cameron Murchison has opened a new venue in the culinary corner at Rosalie Village, The Bounty. The relaxed eatery is for those seeking uncomplicated, modern Australian fare in a casual setting.
Though he has built his reputation in fine dining, Murchison says he is excited to steer his new venture in a more down-to-earth direction, moving with the trends of the industry.
“Fine dining can be intimidating for some people,” he says. “We want to provide an environment that is easy to access and encourages diners to come back again and again.
“Rosalie is really focused on the locals. It has a strong community feel and that’s the beauty of the area,” Murchison says of the suburb he’s called home for over five years.
“I wanted a name that described the venue as a destination - the word ‘bounty’ has connotations of both Rosalie and our menu being hidden treasures that locals and visitors will want to seek out.”
The Bounty will offer coffee, breakfast and lunch seven days a week, and dinner Tuesday through Sunday. Chef Emlyn Thorrington of Stokehouse Melbourne, Peasant, Cabiria and Spring will be taking charge of the kitchen armed with the motto, “great food doesn’t have to be too serious or expensive”.
The large open window at the bar also provides the perfect vantage point for relaxed afternoon drinks, stocking a range of craft beers, spirits and Australian and International wines.
With two big industry names at the helm, an attractive fit out, a welcoming vibe and an approachable menu, we’re already predicting The Bounty will be an excellent addition to the Brisbane dining scene.
