Given the gallery location, you'd expect this restaurant to adopt a cerebral, creative approach, and chef Josue Lopez does not disappoint. Chiefly a lunchtime destination, this sleek space with floor-to-ceiling glass, concrete flooring and bentwood chairs lets the kitchen's artful, precisely detailed dishes do the talking. Briny Moreton Bay bug arrives on a creamy almond base encircled by crustacean foam, the sweet flesh topped by slices of tart apple and sprigs of beach greenery. Rosy duck breast is Miróesque in plating, with vivid splashes of watercress emulsion, malted barley and borage flowers. Desserts are equally gallery-worthy. Lopez's dot painting-inspired wattleseed custard is a signature, while Pimm's No 1, a tilt at the gin-based cocktail with a lemonade cloud, mandarin, strawberry and cucumber, is almost as impressive. Service is smooth and a smart drinks list balances local and global, with a pleasing quotient of quirk.
