A night in Paris? Lutece Restaurant & Bar is a much-appreciated taste of French refinement in an otherwise ordinary suburban shopping strip. Inside, the decor is minimal and modern with dark floor tiles, opaque French cafe chairs and tables covered with crisp white tablecloths that exude a sense of understated class. The highlight is panoramic view of the city that is best appreciated at lunchtime. The menu is French (of course), boasting traditional dishes with a modern twist. The menu is seasonal, so if you visit in winter take full advantage of those rich French flavours in dishes like a 24-hour braised mushroom and truffle stuffed oxtail – this will literally melt in your mouth! The fantastic flavours are courtesy of esteemed French chef Romain Bapst who has created this fresh oasis in the middle of Brisbane. If you’re feeling like a taste of Paris make sure you visit Lutece – c'est magnifique!
