Black Bird Bar and Grill
A lavish space inspired by The Great Gatsby, the prohibition & speak-easy’s
it’s a glamorous new addition to the Eagle Street foodscape!
A captivating blend of ornate Art Deco furnishings, velvety buttoned chairs & grand curtains
we were immediately immersed in early 21st century magnificence.
Brought to us by the Ghanem Group
(Byblos Brisbane, Byblos Melbourne, 5th Element, Baba Ganouj and Saj)
one can expect nothing less of Black Bird - with executive chef Jake Nicolson
(formerly of elBulli in Spain and The Ledbury in London!)
& head chef Anthony Donaldson
we arrived a little early and was led out to the beautiful bar area
their creative cocktail list is inspired by the prohibition – for example ‘Giggle Water’
a 1920 slang for an intoxicating beverage
We were given a tour of the restaurant by their friendly team : )
They have many private dining rooms should one wish to throw a party or two!
Love this crystal decanter lights in an upside down bath tub
their aging cabinet
fresh fruits of the sea
a very well priced menu – we mainly tried the entrees and starters,
must go back and try the steaks next time!
delicious shellfish platter of Jedd’s oysters, Moonlight Flat oysters,
Mooloolaba king prawn, Moreton Bay bug & Harvey Bag scallop
wagyu beef carpaccio w. sweet burnt leek & black truffle mayonnaise
tea smoked black kingfish w. picked heirloom beetroot, horseradish & rye bread
Wood BBQ octopus w. oloroso sherry, plumped raisins & chorizo on toast
wild rabbit & black truffle tortellini w. garden peas & lettuce
It was a truly decadent experience!
