BarMerlo Unveils New Italian Style Menu!

Brisbane’s favourite CBD coffee stops
BarMerlos, have unveiled an all new lunch menu, and it is one which pays homage to founder Dean Merlo’s Italian heritage, with direct input from his parents Gino and Mary, legendary owners of Brisbane’s Milano Restaurant, one of Australia’s most prestigious restaurants of the 1980s.
BarMerlos now boast classic Italian pizzas and a lunch menu which features authentic Italian fare.

The new menu focuses on made to order Italian pizzas and calzones – where
BarMerlo chefs knead the dough themselves and then create lunch masterpieces. A new signature Italian Meatball Calzone, has already has generated strong demand from customers with its freshly made Italian meatballs, covered with Merlo’s special Napoli sauce and mozzarella; all made from a recipe handed down from Dean’s mum, Mary.

Freshly made Ciabatta Rolls, Piadina Flatbreads, Minestrone soup, Spinach and Ricotta Crostata, Frittata and Salad and of course daily specials will more than keep hungry CBD workers satisfied.

Plus, a daily competition amongst stores to create recipes for freshly baked muffins has uncovered some wonderful creations including Rosewater, White Chocolate & Coconut and the cult favourite flavour, Marz Bar. Each store chooses its own flavour for the day with muffins sales doubling across
BarMerlos in the last month alone.

“The Italian-inspired new menu, made and baked on the premises has really lifted the standard across BarMerlos. The pure simplicity of the menu reflects the traditional heritage of my family and harvests the very best flavours of Italian cuisine,” said Dean Merlo.
