That’s the word on the street. According to my (multiple) sources, Moran is in negotiation to take over the old Boardwalk lease on Eagle St Pier, which went under in the floods 18 months ago. It would be good to have more venues in the city that are pitched higher than a sandwich bar but less corporate than what’s on offer now, if indeed that’s what he’s going to do. When I contacted Moran he said that nothing was confirmed ‘at this stage.’ and he ‘really can’t make a comment.” Fair enough. Hopefully, once the ink’s dry I can give you confirmation. I hope the rumour’s true because more restaurants in Brisbane can only be a good thing, upping the ante and forcing everyone else to pull up their socks. Plus one restaurant going into a space = one fast food chain NOT going into it.
