my gorgeous long time friend, nell, took me to elk for lunch recently. nell has long lived on the coast & knows the places to eat, drink & shop! elk is just 1 week old & we both firmly agreed that the place is going to be a massive hit for broadbeach & the gold coast in general! amongst us we ordered a plate of dips & crispy crackers, shoestring fries w aioli, eye fillet, oven roasted tomatoes w pumpkin, pine nuts, avocado & persian fetta + roast veg w goats cheese & rocket salad...all fresh & delicious. they use marvell st coffee from byron bay. i loved the sanded back wall with giant elk print + the fern dividing wall is fabulous...also the xavier pauchard chairs & stools look great in white & pea green! we visited the next day & the place was spilling out onto the pavement with people waiting for tables...our takeaway coffees were excellent. next time I am on the coast I will be back visiting elk!
