Chef Romain Bapst - a long-timer at Il Centro - brings city sophistication to this suburbanite, his first Brisbane venture as owner. The space is contemporary elegance, the service is polished, the wine list is well considered and the food line-up is French classics with a modern edge. Homage is paid to Bapst's Alsace homeland in the likes of flammekueche, a sautéed onion, crème fraîche and speck take on pizza made with a thin, short pastry. To begin, a cast-iron pot brimming with Moreton Bay bug, gnocchi, chestnut and sage is pure joy. Main courses are on the generous side: Armagnac plum relish and tonka bean jus ramp up slow-roasted duck with crisp skin on a purée of sweet potato, while a shoulder of Milly Hill lamb, accented by thyme and lemon, with potato galette makes up in flavour what it lacks in plate appeal. Crêpes flambéed in Grand Marnier, and soufflé - passionfruit this night - are fitting finales.
