Fine Dining in the Brisbane CBD
Restaurant Two is a fine dining restaurant that offers a selection of courses to tantalise the taste buds. It boasts an extensive wine and craft beer list.
What I love about Restaurant Two is that each course has contrasting flavours and textures. The dessert had an interesting combination of sweet banana ice-cream, macadamia and tangy passionfruit mixed with a hint of liquorish in the sponge cake. The eye fillet steak with grilled vegetables and rye stood out to me because of the wasabi butter that garnished the steak. Another tasty course was the crispy pork belly with parsnip, macadamia and pickled red cabbage.
