“Brisbane’s largest annual dining program, Dine BNE City, is back in June and ready to make our fantastic hospitality scene even better,” Cr Schrinner said.

“This year’s menu is sure to entice foodie fans once again, serving up a blend of the city’s best culinary experiences and curated line-up of special events.

“Dine BNE City offers delicious deals for every taste and budget, from lunch specials to fine dining, enticing city workers, friends and families to discover Brisbane’s thriving dining scene this winter.

“The jam-packed program is a boon for local Brisbane businesses, as visitors fill restaurants and lifestyle precincts while supporting our local economy.”

Brisbane’s hottest dining event of the year, Fireside, ignites the foodie festivities on Friday 31 May.

Hosted at the grounds of St. Stephen's Cathedral, the exclusive ticketed event is a showcase of The City's culinary excellence with food from Donna Chang, Settimo and Babylon Brisbane and decadent desserts and drinks from Walter's Steakhouse and Wine Bar and The Gresham Bar.

Donna Chang Head Chef Lyndon Tyers said he was delighted by the enthusiastic response to last year’s Fireside event and looked forward to showcasing their modern Asian menu for this 2024 event.
