More than 50 Brisbane restaurants and bars will be serving up dining deals as part of a two-week campaign to reignite the city’s dining scene.

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said Dine BNE City would run from 13-30 May and culminate in the return of the popular Sea to the City event, the alfresco seafood event by the river in the CBD.

“Brisbane has amazing restaurants and bars, offering everything from sophisticated suppers to relaxed riverside lunches and hidden laneway cocktail bars,” Cr Schrinner said.

“This campaign will make it incredibly tempting for locals and visitors to enjoy a meal or drink out, with 80 delicious lunch, dinner and bar offerings across 50 city venues.

“From a $25 lunch and drink deal at Blackbird Bar & Grill to a $99 eight-course Japanese tasting menu at Sake, people will be able to experience some of Brisbane’s best venues at a very competitive price.

Cr Schrinner said many of our city hospitality venues experienced a decline in lunch break and after-work patronage during the global coronavirus pandemic.

“I’m confident these two weeks of offers will bring the economic boost many of these traders have been patiently waiting for,” he said.

Cr Schrinner said the food frenzy would conclude with Sea to the City on Sunday 30 May, which would bring the return of Moreton Bay bugs, oysters, and a seafood trail along the City Reach.

“There will be 16 riverside restaurants putting forward their best seafood offerings on this day, so if you love sensational seafood, this is the event for you,” he said.
