Cocktails at the Steakhouse, StanthorpeIs licking the plate rude? It is that good!  The steakhouse is finding the rave reviews continue and we are enjoying the changes including the latest menu with Australian wild caught Barramundi, grilled haloumi, garlic pizza bread and our new petite steak range including 150g Eye fillet, 150g Rib Fillet and 200g Rump fillet – all certified Black Angus Beef.

If you havn’t popped your head in the last couple of months, you will find a few changes including the refurbished dining area, with candlelit tables and new intimate layout.  A perfect place to unwind and enjoy the fresh produce from the area.  Thankfully we have Sam from the Summit Fruit Shop to supply all of our fruit and vegetables and now have over a dozen local wineries highlighted on our wine list.  Each week we sample 6 new varieties by the glass, so pop up to the bar to have a taste and find your next favourite.

Our new chef, Kristoff has brought his wealth of knowledge from working in Steakhouses all over the world including New York State, Canada and the UK.  There has been a line-up for his creamy baked potato that has even our grandma’s jealous.  And he certainly has the knack for cooking the steaks to perfection.

Spring has also brought some delicious additions to our cocktail list including a delightful vanilla & peach chai tea and our very own “Ginger Sundowner” including Castle Glen ginger liqueur and sparkling red grape juice with a dash of fresh lime.  For the cooler evenings, our hot buttered whiskey will warm you with it’s spicy aroma’s and creamy texture.

Aug What’s on

As Aunty Jenny stepped on to the plane, back to England, little did she realise the inspiration she had given….Cypress Ridge Produce, Ballandean
It began at Cypress Ridge, Ballandean, where the finishing touches were given to the Caramelised garlic vinegar recipe about to go into production with the help of Ian from Lirah.  This gorgeous sweet vinegar made with garlic grown at Cypress Ridge went well with salads but was in search of it’s own signature dish.
Thankfully Aunty Jenny provided the haloumi, grilled perfectly with a light greek salad that has seen it’s was to the Steakhouse’ new menu.

This has been joined by a range of petite steaks including 150 gram Eye fillet and a 200 gram Rump Steak.  Also the wine list has been extended to include Ravenscroft, Twisted Gum and Boireann as well as our own house red:  The Mongrel from Ridgemill Estate.  Local wineries are featured every 2 weeks with wines available by the glass as well as taste testing available.

And to finish off the evening, the kitchen has been creating a range of delectable desserts including honey cream puffs, jaffa cheesecake tarts and tiramisu made with local Summit coffee.  Some nights can be very busy, especially weekends, so make sure you get in early and book.
Cypress Ridge Garlic Balsamic and Whole Garlic Paste is available from the Steakhouse as well as Brinx Deli, Vincenzo’s, Granite Belt Dairy and Ballandean Estate.  Phone Cypress Ridge on 07 4684 1184 for more information.
