85 Miskin St

A speedy summer revamp blew away the fine-dining grandiosity once associated with this suburban Queenslander's former incarnation as Brent's, the Dining Experience. Now, share plates are the focus, while the concepts remain adventurous and service is both attentive and knowledgeable. An entrée of citrus-cured ocean trout arrives, its edges dotted with crisp, black edible ants, a refreshing quenelle of rosehip sorbet and dill-flecked crème fraîche alongside. Slow-cooked goat tenderloin is lifted by goat's curd, a scatter of toasted farro adding texture and nuttiness to round out the sweetness of hay-baked pumpkin. Wine choices have been condensed, but remain thoughtful, with by-the-glass options also available by the half-glass. Desserts are mini artworks. Mixed fresh berries, in a meringue-studded cream, are luscious buried treasure in a terracotta flowerpot replete with blooms and chocolate soil.
