The Nook Caffe Restaurant has become one of the Centenary suburbs most recent 'new' establishments. Although gracing us with it's presence for the last few years, it has managed to reinvent itself with a swanky new bar and a top shelf kitchen crew that one would usually only find in the top tier inner-city venues.
In addition to a complete interior refurbishment, the owner Pam Bassi, has managed to poach noted UK chef Luke Peters. Those in the know would recognise the name from the hugely successful Bucci Restaurant in the Valley (famed for it's regular culinary tours of regional Italian fare). His resume includes the Cloudland here in Brisbane and the exclusive Paradise Bay Island Resort in the Whitsundays.
Luke has brought a distinct style to the food he creates which he describes as, " the dishes you know, the favourites, but with a twist ". His credo of shop local with the use of the freshest ingredients makes the Nook and Hillmans natural partners.
Luke has said the local community spirit of the Centenary suburbs reminds him of his hometown of Kent in the UK. And I have to agree with him there. As our suburb fills with more and more cafes, restaurants, shops, bike-ways, parks,community areas and amenities, the sense of identity and pride in our area seems to be growing too. I often wonder why, for what reason one would need to leave our area when we have so much.
The Nook Caffe Restaurant has a great new feel and if you haven't been there for a while, go along, have a Moet or Asahi at the lounge bar and try something from Luke's new menu. A talented chef, plying his trade in our own backyard. We should be so lucky.
