A Comprehensive Guide To New Restaurants In Adelaide


Last updated 8th May 2018

Here at Glam Adelaide it’s no secret that we love trying out eateries around the state. South Australia is blessed with incredibly fresh, high-quality produce and our chefs are showcasing this in delicious and innovative new ways all the time. We’ve taken the confusion out of choosing your next dinner spot by compiling the newest restaurants that have popped up in Adelaide’s streets recently. Commence the mouthwatering.

Boca Chica Bar

Popular dining destination 1877 Pasta and Wine Bar has been renamed to become Boca Chica Bar after getting a redesign of its inspiration, interior and menu. The now Spanish-inspired bistro and bar has injected some Latin flavour into the Sfera’s Park Suites & Convention Centre in Modbury. (03/18)

We're open for lunch on Friday & Saturday from 12pm!! Join us tomorrow for SANGRIA SESSIONS 1-5pm – with live music, $15…

10 to 12 East Terrace, Adelaide. Melbourne Brazilian restaurant B’Churrasco have brought their distinctly Latin take on delicious steaks to Adelaide. Primarily for the carnivorous diners, the restaurant serves up a mouth-watering selection of charcoal grilled (and locally sourced) beef, pork, lamb and chicken all brought still sizzling to your table on a giant skewer (practically a sword, really) by your passador who will carve off your own slice (or slices!) right there that you can grab with your own provided tongs! (03/18)

Slice of Brooklyn

Shop 4-5/ 82 King William Street, Adelaide. New pizzeria, Slice of Brooklyn, is bringing that distinctive ‘New Yorkapolitan’ style to our shores—pizzas take the crispy (not crunchy) crust and bright tomato sauce of a New York pizza and marries it with the high-temperature fast-fired style of Neapolitan pizza to give you the best of the new and old worlds. The best part about this pizza joint is, rather than having a set menu, they have a wide list of ingredients and methods for you to customise your slice the way you like it! (03/18)


20 Currie Street, Adelaide. This modern Asian Tapas Bar is bringing something new, modern and fresh to the table! BA:M says once you get to try the true Korean taste, you will be amazed by its balance, harmony, freshness and healthy focus. Head on down and take a sneaky peak at this new modern Asian restaurant and its fresh take on brining back genuine Korean flavours. (12/17)
