Modern Australian fare meets Asian fusion all under the one roof with Burnt Ends Kitchen & Bar – an exciting addition to The Barracks precinct at Petrie Terrace. Offering a variety of dining styles, from busy bar-style seating to intimate private dining, Burnt Ends will appeal to a wide range of foodies.
Burnt Ends proprietor TJ Peabody says a state of the art coal-fired kitchen is at the heart of the Burnt Ends experience. “Our coal-fuelled cooking appliances were custom designed for Burnt Ends and built right here in Brisbane,” TJ says. “They’re the largest of their kind here in the city.”
Executive chef Gordon MacGregor says his kitchen staff have been put through extensive training to understand and master the unique coal-fuelled cooking technique. “It is definitely trickier to cook on coals compared to gas but we can incorporate some amazing aromas into our proteins by adding hickory-infused wood chips and aromatic herbs like rosemary, sage and thyme,” Gordon says.
Burnt Ends is the fourth venue in NKB Group’s restaurant portfolio alongside Nativo Kitchen & Bar (also at The Barracks), Nickel Kitchen & Bar (Fortitude Valley) and NKB Express (Indooroopilly). Brisbanites who knew and loved NKB Group’s Nantucket Kitchen & Bar (previously at Indooroopilly) will be pleased to see elements of that popular venue have made their way over to Burnt Ends.
Remember, diamonds come from coal. And you can expect similar gastronomic gems from this exciting dining destination.
