Billy Kart Kitchens
Edmondston St, South Brisbane, QLD 4101
Celebrity Chef Ben O'Donoghue has had a career many would be envious of, working along side people like Jamie Oliver on British and US TV and here in Australia with Co Hosting Surfing the Menu with Curtis Stone and now hosting the new show Aussie BBQ Hero's.
One of the highlights last year for Ben was being selected to cook for the G20 leaders which amongst others included Barack Obama, Valdimir Putin and David Cameron whilst this year a major highlight has been opening his second Billy Kart restaurant in South Brisbane. This restaurant is designed to pay homage to the humble Aussie Billy Kart with a quality on trend look and feel that embraces his high kitchen standards.
Ben’s determination to go the extra mile with the help of Marc and Co drove them to look high and low for the right pieces to bring his vision to life. Their search brought them to the award winning Merano collection by Alex Gufler whose designs are manufactured by Ton, coincidently are the makers of the original bentwood chairs in Ben’s first restaurant at Annerley. The Merano collection’s gorgeous lines provide a sharp contemporary look that encapsulates the relaxed feeling and homely look that Ben strives to achieve. Whilst the natural timbers throughout the venue has worked well to provide a welcoming feel that captures the eye and draws the patrons into the restaurant. Once in the restaurant the patrons can then appreciate the continuity of their attention to detail with the use of beautiful hairpin tables, classic wall features and gorgeous matching chairs and stools.
