W Brisbane’s new signature restaurant The Lex has opened its doors located overlooking the Brisbane River.

The Lex features terrace style dining creating an airy, open feel that connects diners to the outside and a large open kitchen.

The star within the open kitchen is a New-York inspired grill that draws the menu together curated by Chef De Cuisine Pawel Klodowski.

“We are lucky to have such an abundance of seasonal produce at our doorstep here in Queensland, from North Queensland Champagne Lobster to Native Citrus,” said Klodowski.

Chef De Cuisine Pawel Klodowski will be taking inspiration from classic New York style grills.

“We work closely with our producers to ensure that our ingredients are fresh and sourced locally. We work with the best local suppliers as it benefits the environment, supports the local economy and individual farmers, grocers and communities. And, of course, it reflects on the quality of our dishes which have a fuller and more distinct taste as a result.”

The Lex will house two semi-private dining spaces, seating groups of 25 people and up to 70 people. Larger groups will be able to book out the restaurant as a private space and see it come to live with live chef stations serving up grilled meats and fresh produce, separate desserts stations, and roaming canapés.

“We look forward to hosting our first guests and groups at The Lex and delighting them with the offering we’ve worked so hard to curate,” said Cedric Rinaldo, Restaurant Manager at The Lex.

“We can’t wait to bring to life a unique line up of events at The Lex in our first calendar year with culinary programming over Riverfire, the festive season, and other key holidays in our signature playful style.”
