Best Restaurants in Newstead

The former industrial inner city suburb of Newstead has been transformed into a bustling urban hub, where modern apartment blocks are interspersed with relics of its working history, including the landmark heritage-listed Gas Ring, the sole remnant of the Gasworks that once operated here. 

Today it is home to some of the best restaurants in Brisbane, many of them located in the vibrant Gasworks precinct whilst others have taken up residence under new apartment blocks, or in stunning repurposed warehouses. Here are 18 of the best restaurants in Newstead:
