Little Social kitchen, bar and restaurant is set to open in Paddington this June, bringing an eclectic mix of share plates, cocktails and atmosphere to the inner city Brisbane suburb.

Based on the concept of “sharing is caring”, the restaurant will serve various share plates and generous eats. Head Chef Matthew Deem will be taking charge of the food, with a solid reputation as a purveyor of delicious bites and comforting meals, stemming from his time as a Sous Chef at Peasant Restaurant. With a focus on modern Australian cuisine, Little Social’s menu includes succulent lamb shanks, grazing boards, and charcuterie boards stuffed with well-aged serrano ham, jabali, button mushrooms, and croutes. Other feature dishes include lemon squeezed fresh Pacific oysters, grilled haloumi share plates garnished with seasonal vegetables, as well as truffle pea and chorizo croquettes.

The drinks offered at the bar will consist of the restaurant’s signature sangria on tap, as well as several cocktails and fine wine. Little Social also provides customers with a retractable roof in its courtyard, offering the option of dining under the stars. The venue hopes to strike a balance between industrial décor and rustic designs, with pendant lights to illuminate the bar’s timber finish and quiet corners furnished with couches. The restaurant is designed for every occasion, be it a first-time meeting, casual hangouts or deep conversations, over food and drinks.
