Sink your teeth into 36 of the best in the business- the hottest openings of 2023.

Here on the Gold Coast, there’s no denying it’s a formidable task trying to keep up with the deluge of foodie destinations we cop on a weekly basis, let alone across an entire year (and we are speaking from experience, here! #sendcoffee).
Enter – our trusty, annual roundups – bite-sized (and handy AF) breakdowns of all the hottest openings we scored over the last year – by bar, cafe, and finally – our newest and most rendezvous-worthy restaurants.
Without further ado, here are 36 of the best that made their grand entrance in 2023.

Owners of esteemed steakery Moo Moo, Steven & Autumn Adams, set their sights on the sea with their latest venture – BLOWFISH Ocean Grill + Bar, splashing a cool $3 million on Broady’s new, double-story show-stopper. Designed by Space Cubed, the expansive, coastal-inspired 150-seater made its grand entrance boasting luxury at every turn. Borrowing both a postcode and some signature dishes from its big sib venue, the BLOWFISH menu features a choice of meaty Moo Moo cameos alongside Caviar BumpsMoreton Bay bug stuffed Milk Buns, and signature Seafood Towers. If it’s all out decadence that’s in order, Head Chefs Bradley Davis and Lee Huckstep have got you covered with the likes of the Western Australian Rock Lobster with Cognac + Gruyere.
