Finding a new favourite Brisbane restaurant is a little like dating. You try many of them—with varying degrees of success—until you find one that suits you to a tee, before riding off into the sunset together.
We are going pretty steady with our current roster of marriage-material Brisbane restaurants, but when something too good to pass up comes out of left field and propositions us, it’s hard to say no.
And Lamberts Restaurant in Kangaroo Point certainly isn’t playing hard to get.
This nugget of pure culinary gold is sitting nestled in the heart of East Brisbane (under the Brisbane rooftop bar newbie, Eagles Nest) serving up delightful menu with a focus on fresh, local produce.
The chef manning the burners at Lamberts Restaurant, Marcus Turner, is no stranger to fine dining served up in a classy setting.
Having worked in the kitchens of some of Brisbane’s best restaurants since the 90s, Marcus knows how to plate up a mean modern Australian dish, and keep the locals coming back for more.
There’s a strong ‘from farm gate to plate ethos’ running through the menu, and the menu changes seasonally to reflect local availability (there’s a new one dropping in late April).
Our pick from the current dinner menu is the local sand crab with tomato and saffron bavarois, radish, broad beans, asparagus, and caviar dressing. Um, yum.
The drink selection is equally impressive, too, and the friendly staff will help you match your wine, cider, beer or cocktail to your chosen dish.
Lamberts Restaurant is open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
[Editor’s tip guys: A sunset champagne at Eagles Nest followed by a dinner booking at Lamberts on Sunday evening, is our idea of good date!]
