The Boundary Hotel in West End has welcomed Head Chef Andrew Musk to the team, along with a sophisticated new menu to coincide with the easing of Queensland’s COVID restrictions.

With The Boundary now able to fully reopen and welcome its patrons back, it’s been the perfect time to launch this new menu, say the hotel operators. Musk, who has previously worked at Palazzo Versace, Ricky’s River Bar & Restaurant Noosa and Howard Smith Wharves, is excited to bring a new taste to the Boundary. “We want people to not only come to The Boundary for a drink, but for the whole food experience,” he said.

“We’ve introduced more smaller plates, like the char grilled octopus, prawn tostadas and the spicy lamb ribs, so people can interact while they’re tasting different items and having a drink. The menu is much more than what you expect from ‘pub food’.”

Following the refurbishment of the 156-year old Boundary Hotel in late 2018, the West End institution set its sights on a revamp of the menu to match the venue’s look and feel. The Boundary General Manager Grant Morgan said they wanted the menu to properly reflect what The Boundary was about. “The Boundary is more than just a pub. We have our Laneway, Backyard, Rooftop, Public Bar and function areas, so we wanted a menu that reflected all these offerings,” he said.

“Of course we still have our classics, like steaks and schnitzels, but we’re using the highest quality ingredients and giving our patrons a much better range. We want The Boundary to showcase some of the best food in Brisbane, while remaining affordable and approachable.”

Musk said that he’s focused on using as many local ingredients as possible and making the most of what Queensland producers have to offer. It’s reflected here on the new menu, with a range of dishes to suit every foodie. “Our new poached prawn roll is sure to be a hit, especially for guests to enjoy while sitting in the winter sun in The Backyard. I also think the whole lamb shoulder, with some share plates, is a must-try with a group of mates.”

The Boundary is back open for business all day, everyday, serving coffee and snacks from 7am and then moving to the new menu and classic wood fired pizzas from lunch and late into the evening. The Boundary is following a COVID Safe plan and all current government restrictions.
