Last week we were invited to try The Publishers Hotel's new menu, just in time for the warmer months ahead. Featuring a range of lighter, healthier options, the new menu retains the rustic, modern Australian inspirations that The Publishers Hotel are known for.
After a mere 18 months of operation, The Publishers Hotel has been transformed from a printing house, to a hostel, and finally into what it is today. This beautiful old building reflects a sleek, industrial aesthetic, whilst retaining the original character, charm and history of the space. “Since opening our doors just over 18 months ago, we have created an established venue centred on the love of delicious food, crafted beverages and outstanding service,” says owner Peter Buik.
Head Chef Daniel Brooks brings his 16+ year career into practice with the new menu, mixing flavours such as spatchcock and chermoula, quinoa pilaf, puffed rice and kangaroo rump, all of which he recommends as 'must-try dishes'.
“The new menu enables us to cater to a wider demographic thanks to the combination of interesting ingredients and cooking techniques, to create memorable and delicious dishes,” says Brooks. “We pride ourselves on serving elegant food that blends with classic, nostalgic flavours to offer more health conscious dishes."
Punters can choose to dine in the restaurant or front bar, with options to suit everyones taste-buds. “While the new bar menu also incorporates healthier food options, it still features crowd favourite nibbles like popcorn chicken, crispy beef, oysters and shoestring fries – perfect for sharing over a drink with friends," says Brooks. “If you prefer to dine in the relaxed bar ambience, the mint salad with green apple, feta and crisp olives or strawberry, prosciutto and asparagus salad will definitely leave you feeling satisfied.”
With its Franklin Street address in the Adelaide CBD, there's no wonder The Publishers Hotel is quickly becoming a destination of choice for so many. A recently new hotel that prides itself on offering quality food and beverage options, with seasonal menus on trend to cater to all taste buds.
