Has anyone on this board been toThe Buffalo Club? The chef, Ryan Squires, has an amazing resume including stints at The French Laundry and El Bulli. I think if this restaurant were in Sydney or Melbourne it would take a booking made a month in advance to even get a table. Will be going this week so hope to report back good things. There is also a Bar on the floor above which has an amazing fit out and a great cocktail list.
Another new bar in brisbane which is again one of the best around is La Ruche which has a really tasty menu and great drinks list. It does seem brisbane is starting to have quite a range of good quality bars that really do appear to be at the head of the pack in Australia.
