It's official: Summer's over. Whether this fact makes you majorly morose ('bye-bye beach') or totally ecstatic ('see you swimsuit season!'), the fact remains: you may have to rethink your weekend leisure hours now that going costal is a less-appealing option.
Luckily, Brisbane's autumn weather is pretty darn perfect—unlike some other cities we could mention *cough, Melbourne, cough* —and the slight nip in the air is best enjoyed with some seasonally appropriate culinary fare, and equally apt autumn drinkies.
When it comes to the best seasonal produce it's best to let the experts do the choosing for you, and this autumn we're looking to our riverside favourite, Stokehouse, for the ideal Sunday lunch location and the perfect contemporary seasonal menu.
To help you navigate the best produce autumn has to offer, Stokehouse have taken the change of season by the horns and devised a cunning plan to bring you the perfect autumn menu. The catch is, the ingredients sourced by Head Chef, Tony Kelly, are so fresh, so season-appropriate, so dang delicious, even he doesn't know what's on the menu yet!
Stokehouse's lucky Sunday patrons will be privy to a new hand-written menu every week, based on the freshest autumn produce. Served up in typical Stokehouse laid-back sophistication, the three-course set menu will highlight the best of Queensland's cuisine and feature seasonal produce hand-chosen by the Chef.
The pared-back, simple approach lets the delightfully fresh produce speak for itself, and they'll even choose just the right wine for each dish—it's like dining for the decision-making-challenged, you hardly have to think! Just sit back and enjoy the best long lunch in Brisbane.
And because the lunch menu features an entrée that's made for sharing, Stokehouse is the ideal spot to spend a leisurely Sunday with a big group of friends, enjoying that clean and crisp autumn air and brilliant riverside sunshine. Who needs summer?
