A Casual Dining Experience
Set along the prestigious Eagle St dining precinct overlooking the Brisbane river and Story Bridge, Esq. oozes a sense of modern sophistication steeped in traditional and earthy roots.
The dark marble and woody tones warmly frames the scene for a simple & casual a la carte menu featuring hero ingredients such as locally sourced & sustainably caught seafood or high grade meats roasted over coal. It is our intention at Esq. to create sensational dishes in a casual dining experience from the same philosophy found in our formal Esquire dining.
"We all strive to provide the highest calibre of service and work as a team to do so."
Refined & Passionate
We have a strong and mature workplace culture at Esq. There is a certain expectation on standard, quality and appearance. We are a small team where everyone works well together and where everyone really thrives under pressure and “owns” the intensity. Along with this there is an enjoyment and a want to be in the industry. Although some of our staff members are studying other disciplines, all have a niche passion about something particular to the industry, be it wine, spirits or a standard of service in support of high-quality dining.
Management is nurturing and focused on providing the best possible environment to allow their team to perform and flourish. Everything is done to the most professional standard and in many a case management act as mentors to the junior staff.
A Desire to Build a Career
We require all our candidates to be passionate about providing the highest service to customers and taking them on a culinary journey. We love it when candidates share a desire to make a career out of hospitality; a bit of experience is preferred but not necessary. We look strongly to character and drive!
In the kitchen, it would be preferable if you have some overseas experience. Esq. and head chef Ryan Squires creates a great incubator for chefs to learn and develop.
