In the Brisbane dining scene, venues don't come much more hyped than the much anticipated Black Bird Bar and Grill, which opens its doors to the public tonight on Eagle Street.
Boasting two large bars, one dark, one light, and a restaurant, which includes two private dining rooms, Black Bird boasts a lush Gatsby era décor and enjoys draw-dropping views of the Story Bridge.
As the name suggests, grilling is set to be high on the agenda, with an Argentinean Infierno 96 Wood Grill in the house, where patrons can watch the chefs at work grilling their steak and seafood. The menu itself will have a heritage Australian feel, with an emphasis on rare breeds (think octopus and rabbit) and whole beast cookery — we know, yum — as well as locally sourced seafood (Black Bird has their own oyster bed at Coffin Bay. That's fresh!).
And the bar certainly doesn't play second fiddle to the restaurant. With two stunning bar spaces sure to appeal to Brisbane's night owls. With a cocktail menu that comes from the highly creative prohibition era, there's a smorgasbord of decadent drinks to choose from. This cocktail list promises to be one of Brisbane's most innovative, pushing the limits of presentation and flavour. There's also a bar menu offering more casual fare.
