there is no such thing as perfect food

"Context and memory play powerful roles
in all the truly great meals in one's life."
Anthony Bourdain

Brisbane Street Bistro is born from a love of good food. Cautiously exploring an evolution of things we like, and things we don't; an understanding that there is no such thing as perfect food.

Our menu is a thoughtful bringing-together of things which make classic french food so satisfying and contemporary Australian food so eclectic, engaging, and provoking. But, remember that good food -like good thoughts- are best when they are concise. Let us take away every component that is unnecessary what remains will be better; a place where the flavours & textures can stand straighter, and exist with more purpose. 

"Food is everything we are. It's an extension of nationalist feeling, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region, your tribe, your grandma. It's inseparable from those from the get-go."
Anthony Bourdain

This Restaurant is our first few confident steps on a lifetime journey to look after people, to surprise, and to delight. What you'll experience here is a careful balance between the old and the new. 

For us, it's an idea that transcends simple sustenance. 
For us, this experience is an evolving idea: exciting, intriguing, proud even. 
For us, this is a simple expression of the idea that there is no such thing as perfect food, and that striving every day for perfection is ultimately about making people happy, that's all.

We make good food with the best produce on earth and serve wine to match. We hope you like what we do, and we look forward to having your company.

So, Welcome to our Restaurant.
