Rock Salt gets a sister restaurant – The Riff.

Rock Salt gets a sister restaurant – The Riff.

I’m sure you are familiar with the delicious success that is Rock Salt. That restaurant that you can’t help but to keep going back to.  Having won many best in business awards and with a huge Trip Advisor following for fantastic food it’s no wonder that owner and entrepreneur has branched out and created another awesome food spot.

Jason Faint, chef and owner had made the move to Brisbane to open a new concept restaurant – The Riff. He said ‘Rocksalt is in great hands with loyal long term staff and family members running it, I have no doubt it will continue to go from strength to strength in Gladstone, but is my time to try something new’.

The Riff is the perfect place if you love great food, live music and a lager. It’s got enough personality to attract all types of customers and is located in Emporium Complex, Fortitude Valley.

Patrick said ‘If you are like us, you love a good beer, wine or cocktail. We have a variety
of Australian craft beer & wines and create top notch food with funky music in a relaxed atmosphere.’’

Even though Jason is taking on the city of Brisbane, he engaged a local Gladstone company to create the brand and help the concept come to life. Elevate Media were excited for the new Brisbane Restaurant and assisted in the creative process by designing the brand, logo, a funky music mural for the wall and the new website. Karina from Elevate said  ‘We were drooling on our keyboards making this website – we could almost taste the food from just seeing what Jason put on the plate! He is really a food genius and this will be a huge success. He already knows the recipe to making an awesome restaurant.’’


It’s a wonderful to see a Gladstone boy, dreaming big and scaling up while also keeping his home town family, business and connections close by.
