For the full festival experience
Brisbane Festival and thirteen of Brisbane's best restaurants have teamed together to present Festival Flavours. Each restaurant has come up with an exclusive dish that will be available for the duration of the festival. These dishes will be completed with beverages by Brisbane Festival partner's Vinaceous wines, James Squire beer, and 42 Below vodka.
These are just some of the specials on offer. At Watt Restaurant and Bar (New Farm), $40 will buy you two share plates of barbecue prawns, seared sirloin, duck spring rolls, and zucchini flowers plus two glasses of either wine or beer. For $50, you can enjoy a two-course meal and two beverages at 5ifth Element (South Bank). Popolo Italian Kitchen and Bar (River Quay) is offering festival goers an antipasti platter with a carafe of 2012 Vinaceous pinot grigio for $30.
Also at South Bank, close to the festival's festivities, The Jetty, Stokehouse, South Bank Surf Club, and GoMA's Cafe Bistro have devised a dish for the festival. In Fortitude Valley, there are three restaurants to choose from: Tartufo Ristorante, Gerard's Bistro, and Lady Lamington. The remaining restaurants rounding out the list include Tank Restaurant (CBD), Vintaged Bar and Grill (CBD), and Libertine Restaurant (Petrie Terrace).
