Back in May, we announced a huge laneway dining precinct was planned for Everton Plaza, including the likes of 5 Boroughs , Stellarossa and Brisbane City favourites Corbett & Claude and Comuna Cantina .

We promised to keep you in the loop and, as works have started to ramp up, more details have been revealed on Corbett & Claude and Comuna Cantina.

The first to open will be Corbett & Claude in April on the ground floor, which will spill out to the laneway and an outdoor dining area at the rear.

The eatery’s resident coffee spot Mr. Claude will be incorporated into the venue’s central bar and kitchen, where diners and drinkers can perch on a stool and watch their order being prepared.

Comuna Cantina will open next door in June and the end of 2019 will see a laid-back, European summer-inspired rooftop bar open above Corbett & Claude.

Both Corbett & Claude and Comuna Cantina have recently launched new menus (which will carry over to Everton Plaza), with Corbett & Claude adding at 20-page drink menu, doubling its pasta selection and adding some new mains, and Comuna Cantina doubling its cocktail list and adding quesadillas to the menu for the first time.

We hear more exciting news is coming soon from the group – we’ll keep you posted.
