Fork Talk: Issue 35

A celebration of the latest and greatest of Brisbane’s dining scene.

Isles Lane

When it comes to Friday lunch, the usual haunt just won't cut it. Thankfully, Isles Lane is levelling up our lunches with the gourmet pub fare that definitely hits the spot. With ice cold beers and mouthwatering lobster rolls on the menu, this will become your new go-to. Come April 9, doors will brandish open on Post Office Square’s Isles Lane, a micro pub set to redefine casual inner-city dining. Isles Lane will take over the expansive haunts on 300 Queen Street, bridging the gap for meetings in Post Office Square, after-work drinks, and weekend dining.

Family owned vegan café, Dicki’s, has moved into New Farm’s Brunswick Street and it doesn’t look like it’s set to move anytime soon. With an entirely plant-based menu, the new favourite is taking New Farm by storm with dishes such as the crispy tofu bao with veggies and satay sauce.

Italian Food Restaurant

The name speaks for itself; this Spring Hill favourite is quickly becoming a staple to the Brisbane Italian food scene. Opening late last year in the old Happy Boy spot on Mein Street comes an exciting menu of protein and produce focused dishes, with only a single pasta dish in sight.

Welcome to Bowen Hills

February treated Brisbane with the newest foodie daydream, Welcome to Bowen Hills. The permanent food truck market has overtaken the Ekka Dairy Hall and Sugar Building with an array of extravagant cocktails and a rotating daily roster of international food options.

Walter’s Steakhouse

From the owners of The Gresham comes Walter’s Steakhouse. Set in the majestic Old Mineral House, on the junction of Edward and Alice Street, Walter’s overlooks 
the historic Brisbane Botanical Gardens. Here, you’ll feast on the signature Walter’s Porterhouse.

51st Street

As the newest addition to Eagle Street Pier, 51st Street is a New York inspired, industrial style diner that has arrived to serve up all your breakfast favourites, great coffee, healthy bowls, burgers, BBQ, and house spun gelato. Say no more!
