The New York culinary trend continues to sweep the river city as 5 Boroughs announcing its third popular American eatery will open in Balmoral on Saturday 23 June.

The 5 Boroughs team will celebrate the launch by inviting customers to share the love and “feed a friend for free”. Customers will be able to purchase two meals from the menu for the price of one as they eat their way through the five boroughs of New York City, indulging in a range of American-style eats including reuben sandwiches, fish tacos, empanadas, Franks Hot wings or the 5 Boroughs burger. The menu also features recently launched Manhattan Royale, the Bronx Mac ‘n’ Cheese, the King of Queens and the Brooklyn Brisket.

With more than 30 years experience in the hospitality industry, founders Todd and Marisa Clayton, were inspired by New York City and the melting pot of cuisines within, and from this passion the 5 Boroughs concept was born. “Like its namesake, 5 Boroughs aims to capture the colourful diversity of the five boroughs of New York City – Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens and Staten Island,” Todd explains. “We had the vision of bringing the quintessential New York casual dining experience to Brisbane many years ago followed by several trips to NY, but we knew that we didn’t want to just delve into another stereotypical burger joint, we really had to enter that New York state of mind to get it right.”

The restaurant is located at 216 Riding Road Balmoral.
