Brisbane is quickly becoming the new place to eat, with new bars and restaurants popping up on a weekly basis. I love the variety we now have, even out in the suburbs! Now usually Chermside Westfield isn't the sort of place I'd pick for a swanky lunch date but after noticing a new place opening in the restaurant quarters along the main road I decided to give it a go!
Provenance has taken the old Gilhooleys and created a whole new level of Westfield dining. Following in the footsteps of Garden City and Indooroopilly, suburban shopping centre dining is starting to turn up the heat. The layout is the same as the old pub, however the new décor, friendly staff and tasty menu makes it hardly recognisable.
Mum and I decided on a few light lunch items, however I am keen to go back and try more given the huge range of their menu! We had the freshly baked prawn and rocket pizza and the Queensland calamari, both super fresh and full of flavour. Each day they offer something new to entice the crowds along, Wednesday's being a vino and pasta combo for $20, which, had I have been hungrier would have gone down a treat! They even offer options that are gluten, vegan and paleo friendly, and are open everyday for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
A big well done to the team who put this place together and I really hope they stick around, if you haven't checked Provenance out yet go and have a tasty bite to eat and a sneaky wine or beer as they have a huge selection available, or if breakfast is your thing (I'm considering doing this tomorrow) give their almond milk smoothies and zucchini fritters a try!
Provenance is in Westfield Chermside Cnr Hamilton and Gympie Road, Brisbane (for those familiar with Chermside, it's the movie end, outside where Grilld and Groove Train are).
