Australian celebrity chef opens Amalfi coast-inspired restaurant in Brisbane

You may have seen him on your TV. Or perhaps he’s helped you in your kitchen with his cookbooks. Nonetheless, Guy Grossi is a household name when it comes to cuisine and he’s now added to his impressive restaurant portfolio (two-hatted Grossi Florentino, Ombra and Arlechin in Melbourne and Garum at The Westin Perth) opening his first restaurant in Brisbane’s CBD.

The doors of sophisticated Settimo were thrown open on 28 February at The Westin Brisbane, transporting diners to the famed Italian coastline with fine fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

A Mediterranean escape by Guy Grossi

Paired with the city’s warm climate, the bright, 150-seat restaurant embraces guests in warm muted hues of pastel blues and lemon yellows. Designed by Mills Gorman Architects, nods to the Mediterranean are evident on every surface. From split-face stone and terrazzo to custom-designed terracotta and handmade brick and timber. The finishing touches create an authentically upmarket trattoria.

An Italian tour

Your tastebuds will be taken on an Italian tour of traditional flavours with menu highlights including pasta al limone, gnocchi alla sorrentina with tomato and mozzarella de buffala; Amalfi lemon chicken and Guy’s papa’s lamb; slow-cooked breadcrumbed lamb with parmigiano and sage.

Paired with the restaurant’s extensive international and domestic wine list, guests can sip and savour delectable libations to complement the course.

To satisfy your sweet tooth, classic finishes such as Settimo gelato and Grossi’s tiramisù will delight. There are also set lunch and dinner menus available.

Settimo also features a 20-seat private, custom-designed dining space; floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing downtown views and handcrafted furnishings rich for romance.
