We Check Out The Hottest New CBD Restaurant & Bar

What's not to love about a swanky new restaurant, smack bang in the heart of the city, with a scrumptious menu, and awesome bar to boot? Not much, we say.

Well, lookout fans of classy, modern dining, 'because there's a new Brisbane restaurant ready to woo your tastebuds. We're already swooning hard over this one. 

Lennons Restaurant & Bar—located in the newly launched, and very spiffy, NEXT Hotel Brisbane—is the new Brisbane restaurant that has our hearts all a-flutter. 

The place just oozes schmickness (you should get a load of the mod cons available when you book a room at NEXT Hotel Brisbane) but still maintains an inviting and comforting vibe that we think turns a good restaurant into a stayer. 

The menu is modern Australian at its finest, using fresh Queensland produce and the best cooking techniques borrowed from around the world, put together with flair and creativity thanks to Todd Adams, formerly of Stokehouse Brisbane, Urbane, and The Euro. 

The wood-fired oven is pumping all day, as well as a sizzling wok dishing up Asian-inspired meals, and that's just the start!   

Lennons also serve up hearty and completely delicious dishes from the parilla (an Argentine grill). The spiced free-range chicken with Ligurian olives, beans, and tahini yoghurt was a stand out.

If you'd keep it light and make your drink the main event, there's a bar menu that's served all day with lighter, but no less yummy, options that are designed to accompany perfectly the boutique craft beer and cider menu, or one of the twisted cocktails. (Editor's Tip: The lillet-basil blanc is out-of-this-world amazing.)

No self-respecting restaurant-slash-bar would be worth its salt without a bangin' wine list. Lennons, of course, has this sorted with a selection of damn good wines.

Not just for the holidaymakers, Lennon's Restaurant & Bar (and LennonsToGo) is serving up coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner to Brisbane lovers of healthy, gourmet food, seven days a week 6:30am to 10:30pm.  

Lennons Restaurant & Bar is taking bookings now. Book a space at their communal table, or a more intimate private table by calling the team on 07 3222 3232.
