Get ready to drink like a fish!
Fish Lane already has a pretty solid reputation – from lunch at Julius Pizzeria to dinner at Gauge or cocktails at Maker, you can happily amuse yourself for several hours at this foodie precinct.
Opening from today, Fish Lane’s newest addition is La Lune Wine Co. This French-inspired wine bar is the brainchild of Chef Paul McGivern, who has enjoyed continued success with previous offering The Wolfe in East Brisbane.
Before opening The Wolfe, McGivern briefly stepped away from full-time cheffing to spend time in France, alongside winemaker pal Nick Farr (of Wine By Farr), but the lure of opening his venues proved too strong to resist.
La Lune is unashamedly inspired by McGivern’s time spent in Burgundy; the fit-out is accented by century-old French oak, and the wine list has a generous European presence.
Despite this influence, McGivern is determined to honour the venue’s Queensland location, with a menu featuring classic flavours that focuses on the best produce available, rather than fussy new-age cooking techniques.
As is expected with any reputable wine bar, cheese, charcuterie and raw seafood will be among the menu staples, sitting happily alongside some more substantial dishes.
The focus at La Lune is on the perfect interaction between guest, chef and sommelier. The venue’s limited capacity (just 38 seats) allows for a more intimate dining experience: a tightly-curated wine list, delivered alongside expertly-created plates.
