Opposite the Botanic Gardens, the very chic Restaurant II attracts a who’s who crowd to its cool-casual wine bar and spacious dining room. Chef David Pugh and sommelier Michael Conrad have been wowing Brisbane diners for years, first with Two Small Rooms in Toowong and now this establishment in the heritage Old Mineral House. It’s a minimalist, ultra-modern space fitted out in glass, steel and polished timber and split over two levels. David Pugh’s menu is a well-designed library of elegant, contemporary fare. Dishes are spiked with Asian and Mediterranean flavours and cooked with classic European inflections. A menu that changes monthly can be explored a la carte or via an eight course degustation. Among the many outstanding dishes on offer are starters like the salad of white peach, fennel, prosciutto, rocket, pine nuts and red cow parmesan, or grilled quail on sweet corn galette with thyme butter, crispy bacon and goat’s cheese. More substantial courses include loin of Casino veal with white bean puree, Huon Valley mushrooms and Madeira jus. Finish with a selection of European and local cheeses, or exquisite sweets like the macadamia nut tart with mascarpone.
