Who knew that ensconced within the, let’s face it, rather dull streets of suburban Brisbane lies an unassuming and very special beacon of fine dining.
85 Miskin St, the brainchild of the very passionate owner Brent Farrell, has been dancing across diner’s palates for over ten years. With each plate carefully laid out with innovative ingredients, artful presentation and an astounding level of care, 85 Miskin St is batting with the big guys of the CBD.
Winning a one hat award at the 2014/2015 Good Food Guide awards, 85 Miskin St is known for providing not just a meal, but an experience of sophistication and excellence. The restaurant offers an eight course classic degustation, a popular four course breakfast degustation and a delicious à la carte menu.
And for the rest of the month of July, 85 Miskin st will also be offering a special 10th anniversary degustation that showcases the very best dishes from the last ten years.
The anniversary menu starts with a deliciously savoury wild mushroom cappuccino with a delicate foam, and a seafood bisque with a lick-your-plate rouille sauce. It then crescendos with a perfectly cooked confit duck and a braised beef cheek served with truffle oil potatoes.
The dish of the evening comes last with the gorgeous black forest floor dessert. A perfectly deconstructed take on a classic black forest cake, a chocolate cannoli perched atop a forest floor of chocolate soil, pistachio moss, and cherry marshmallow mushrooms with mud cake stalks. It was almost too magical to eat.
And the best part is that this fine dining experience is only $60, or $95 with matched wines. With only seven days left of this special anniversary menu, be sure not to miss out.
