Jupiters on the Gold Coast has welcomed two new outlets, Mei Wei Dumplings and M&G Café and Bar, forming part of the property’s $345 million transformation.
The new additions are accompanied by existing restaurants Kiyomi, Cucina Vivo and Garden Kitchen & Bar.
The Star Entertainment Group managing director Queensland Geoff Hogg said the outlets would assist in further cementing the property’s reputation as one of the Gold Coast’s ultimate dining and entertainment destinations.
“Mei Wei Dumplings and M&G Café and Bar are crucial components in our transition to become The Star Gold Coast; expanding our offering and creating even more fantastic options for guests,” he said.
Mei Wei Dumplings will focus on dumplings and noodles for dine in or take-away, with a 2.6 metre viewing panel into the dumpling assembly area.
The menu features more than 50 unique options including Xia Jiao (prawn dumplings), Xiao Long Bao (mini soup buns), and the Shanghai noodle with Taiwanese style beef.
Next door, M&G Café and Bar boasts a classic café-style menu offering a range of light and more substantial options for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Executive chef Dustin Osuch said “M&G offers all the creature comforts, while still utilising quality produce to provide tasty and wholesome options that can be enjoyed by all ages.”
Residing in the former Spinners area, the new outlets have been designed by Luchetti Krelle. Natural textures and soft, coastal tones have been used and Mei Wei Dumplings is raw and industrial, while M&G is sleek and sophisticated.
Hogg said the newly unveiled venues are key to the property’s extensive atrium area upgrade, with a new-look Atrium Bar also unveiled ahead of the property’s transition to The Star Gold Coast in early 2017.
“The lobby area, the hotel, the theatre and existing food and beverage experiences all pivot around this central point – it’s one of the first things guests see when arriving on property and it influences the entire look and feel of its surroundings,” he said.
“By early 2017, we will have unveiled six new food and beverage experiences, completed the refurbishment of our almost 600 rooms, and the new luxury six star tower will be taking shape at the front of the property in preparation for its opening prior to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.”
