Play catch up every month, as I give you a taste of what you’ve missed and what’s to come in the Brisbane food and drink scene.
WINE & DINE
Expand your knowledge of fine wines at the latest in the Marriott Hotels Wine Dinner series. Indulge in a locally sourced 5 course menu prepared by their award-winning team of chefs, all perfectly paired with a selection of Wirra Wirra wine.
From the team behind everyone’s favourite Thai restaurant, Longtime comes Honto – Brisbane’s newest Japanese restaurant and bar. Setting up shop in Fortitude Valley, led by head chef Nathan Lastevec, expect to find the kind of modern-fusion menu we’ve come to love from Longtime.
With a huge range of craft beers and an impressive, flavoursome menu, Freddie’s Taphouse & Kitchen is the latest addition to the James Street restaurant lineup. Nestled underneath the Sage Hotel, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy a refreshing drop and soak up the bustling atmosphere.
On Saturday 4th November, more than 3500 Brisbanites dressed in all white will experience the exclusive Diner en Blanc, which promises to be an evening of elegance, fine dining and live music all set in a secretive yet-to-be-announced location. To secure tickets, guests must either be invited by a member from the previous year or join the waiting list.
Little Loco’s new menu is sure to be a crowd-please, with all the bases covered. From the classic smashed avocado to a breakfast poke bowl, and Caesar salad to halloumi and mushroom baos for lunch, Little Loco’s new menu has thought of everything. The New Farm café is known for their creative and healthy meals, but always ensures there’s something on the menu for everything, from adventurous foodies to those who just want the classics done well. Their new menu is guaranteed to be a winner, and shouldn’t be missed.
Mac From Way Back’s food truck is the stuff dreams are made of. Serving up loaded bowls, fries and chips, they offer up the most indulgent of menus. From mid-to-late October, the food truck is teaming up with Sabotage Social to make 143 Wickham Street its home, with diners having the opportunity to gorge themselves on cheesy goodness with a drink or two as well.
Is there anything better than sitting by the water in summer, drink in hand? Customs House and Aperol know they were on to a good thing with their Sunset Spritz popup, and are bringing it back this summer. After opening in September, the popup is sticking around to get us through the warmer months, offering up Italian inspired cocktails and nibbles from Thursdays to Saturdays from 4pm until later and Sundays from 12-4pm.
