From authentic Greek to the best pizza you’ll ever eat, this month, we’re bringing you a taste of every corner of the globe, right here in the River City. Brisbane Food & Drink has never looked and tasted so good.

Hidden Luxury

With its trendy, chic design and stunning array of modern Australian cuisine, The Palace Supper Club is a shining oasis in the middle of the Valley. With gorgeous décor that feels miles away from the hustle and bustle downstairs, the contemporary Australian cuisine distinguishes The Palace Supper Club from the rest of Chinatown. Whether it’s the spanner crab tortellini, the crispy-skin pork belly, or the Parmesan truffle fries, the à la carte menu and casual lounge menu have plenty of options to tempt every diner. Then, wash it all down with an espresso martini off the dessert cocktail list or one of their premium spirits, such as a Japanese whisky or a cognac. Grab the girls and head to Brisbane’s most elegant dining experience, combining exquisite food, luxurious décor, and great company.

Get him to the Greek!

Kenmore’s newest dining addition, Stavros The Greek, has answered all our souvlaki and yiros-related prayers. Open for dinner every night, plus Sunday lunch, we’re most excited about the sunset area; serving Greek wines, cocktails and a ‘Pick Your Own Love Potion’ gin and tonic menu.

Paddock To Plate

Bringing nature to the table, the contemporary pop-up restaurant Black Ox Dining provides an underground banqueting experience unlike any other in Brisbane. Adopting the paddock-to-plate philosophy, Brisbane local Chris Siktars works alongside local producers and farmers to showcase the best produce that Queensland has to offer. Infused with passion and creativity, the core of Black Ox Dining is their respect for nature and seasonality within their contemporary menu. With a strong emphasis on keeping things as sustainable, organic and native as possible, an ever changing menu allows for the utilization of produce from Black Ox’s vegetable plot and local fruit orchards and for the creation of a new flavorsome experience every time! We promise you will find yourself in absolute foodie heaven.

Kitchen to table

It was always going to take a special something to fill the place of Paddington favourite Montrachet, and Margo is certainly the right locale for the job. Head Chef Americo Fernandes was raised in Paris, so you know he has grown up surrounded by good food.

La Pinsa

Think you’ve eaten authentic, Italian pizza? Unless you’ve tried the real deal from new Paddington hot-spot, La Pinsa, you’d better think again.

Three Blue Ducks

If you heard us rambling on about the arrival of Three Blue Ducks last month, you’ll know that the restaurant is launching their first Queensland venue at the soon-to-open W Brisbane. Renowned for serving up home-grown goodness in abundance at their three supreme locations across New South Wales, they are set to shake up the Sunshine State’s hospitality scene.

Knock Knock Gnocchi

The team behind Corbett & Claude have recently launched a virtual restaurant on Uber Eats called Knock Knock Gnocchi.

“I felt there was nothing on Uber Eats with any personality or fun and when you are paying full restaurant prices to eat at home you’re not really getting great value other than the convenience so I wanted to bring a bit of an elevated experience to people’s homes and a bit of the venue vibe to them,” restaurateur, Tim Johnson, said.
