New steakhouse Black Hide by Gambaro at Treasury Brisbane will open its doors on Friday 8 June, with the 154-seat restaurant to be located in the Treasury Casino.

The Gambaro Group Director John Gambaro said he was proud to open its third restaurant, in partnership with Treasury Brisbane, marking a new era for the multi-generational empire. “This has been a tremendous collaboration and together we have created a supremely indulgent dining experience that our guests will savour,” Mr Gambaro said. “We are excited to offer delicious twists to the menu in our second ‘Black Hide’ restaurant, a beautifully repurposed heritage space for guests to delight in, and of course we will continue to deliver our outstanding personalised service to guests.”

The special menu will feature two decadent steak cuts with an impressive marble score (MB) of nine – the highest score by Australian industry standards – as well as two traditional dry aged steak cuts, and succulent live lobster and Moreton Bay bug seafood dishes. As a “super beef” renowned for its higher marbling score and intense flavour, the Wagyu steak cuts include an eye fillet MB9 and a sirloin MB9 – both served tender and caramelised using the Montague Broiler Grill. Another shining star of the restaurant’s menu will be its dry-aged steak cut options. Guests can choose from a Flinders grass-fed dry aged rib eye MB2+ and an Angus grain-fed dry aged rib eye MB3+.

“This traditional method of dry aging the beef on the bone for a minimum of 28 days allows the slow break down of the meat’s natural enzymes,” Mr Gambaro said. “When the meat is ready to be used, we remove it from the bone and remove the crust so that the beef underneath is beautifully tender and ready for cooking. The result is meaty goodness bursting with flavour and leaving nothing to the imagination.”

Treasury Brisbane Chief Operating Officer Kelvin Dodt said the interior design was inspired by the restaurant’s hero bovine cuisine and the political history of the prestigious Treasury building. “In partnership with The Gambaro Group, we wanted to orchestrate a design that paid respect to the building’s history while reflecting our hero cuisine of succulent, tender steak,” Mr Dodt said. “We collaborated with a team of local consultants and contractors to create an edgy and sleek design combined with the types of rustic textures and materials typically found on a cattle station and butchery – think polish, leather, hand-stitched, saddle, wrought iron, rope, timber, luxe, raw.”

Black Hide by Gambaro at Treasury Brisbane will open for lunch Tuesday to Friday from noon to 3pm, and dinner Tuesday to Thursday and Sunday from 5:30pm to 10pm, and Friday to Saturday from 5:30pm to 11pm.
