Accor partners with Salt Meats Cheese to open new South Bank venue

Accor is partnering with hospitality outfit Salt Meats Cheese to launch a new restaurant at Mantra South Bank in Brisbane later this month.

The partnership with Accor will see Salt Meats Cheese restaurants open across Australia.

“As a group, we have always been drawn to places that not only have an appetite for great food and drink, but a place where we know we will feel like we’re part of the family”, said Salt Meats Cheese co-owner Edoardo Perlo.

“We are thrilled to combine the Salt Meats Cheese hospitality with the first-class service that our extended family at Accor is renowned for.”

Part of an entertainment precinct, the 100+ seater restaurant will offer an al fresco dining area while the bar will offer a list of bespoke cocktails created specifically for South Bank.

“We wanted to create a new space that perfectly caters to the South Bank community as well as Mantra’s hotel guests; a restaurant where you could easily dine solo or with a large group of friends or families in the dining style we’re used to back home in Italy,” said Perlo.

Accor’s chief operating officer Pacific, Simon McGrath, said the announcement marks the beginning of a “mutually beneficial partnership”.

“We remain committed to providing our guests with renewed dining experiences – ones which often challenge preconceived notions of standard hotel fare,” said McGrath.

The restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and offer 24-hour service to Mantra South Bank hotel guests.
