A Fresh Start for Delfina's Bistro
Cecile Blackmore | On 17, Oct 2016
Friday night was a red carpet event at the new Delfina’s Bistro on Ann St – what better way to celebrate the first birthday of the Alex Perry Hotel & Apartments? TCI has the rundown on the food, the drinks and the faces!
When patrons of Alex Perry Hotel & Apartments wanted to eat well, the hotel’s staff dutifully sent them across the road in droves to Emporium to Delfina’s Bistro. Now, guests and fine diners alike can enjoy the gourmet experience on the ground floor of the hotel itself.
The early evening saw red carpet attendees move in, featuring Brisbane offerings Michael Turnbull and Rhys Chilton from The Bachelorette, Councillor Vicki Howard, Amie Casey and the cast of We Were Tomorrow and Seven News presenter Kendall Gilding.
The opening event promised to be part soiree, part delectable dinner party.The new venue boasts stylish booths and a lavishly stocked bar – and an open-style kitchen where patrons can see their meals in the making. Friendly bar staff ensured that the wines, beer and cocktails were free-flowing, as guests whet their appetites with duck, trout and potato canapes. The party were treated to a buffet-style feast – crisp salads, hot potatoes, crunchy greens and mouth-watering meats, and host Robin Bailey of 97.3fm brought the knife down on a sumptuous chocolate cake to seal the deal.
The addition of Delfina’s to cap off a wonderful year of the Alex Perry Hotel & Apartments means guests can sample the all-important Room Service Butler Minibars and Pantry Packs, Chef Experience Dinners and Rooftop BBQs, as well as opportunities to meet their chef in an open pass kitchen – a must-do for a foodie on a night away.
â€œI have had the opportunity to enjoy the innovative fare provided when dining with Delfinaâ€™s Bistro at their current location and I am excited by the opportunity to expose more of our houseguests to the experienceâ€ says Craig Barber, APHAÂ General Manager.
Some of Delfina’s great new specials include a local’s night featuring $20 main meals, and two all-inclusive Melbourne Cup deals with the big day so soon at hand – visit Delfina’s online for more information or like them on Facebook to keep up-to-date.
Delfina’s Bistro is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week. For bookings, contact email@example.com or phone (07) 3252 0214
