Brisbane's best business lunches

Black Bird

Black Bird

Power-lunching in Brisbane? Here are some of our favourite restaurants sure to impress.

Eagle Street Pier still rules the roost when it comes to power-lunching - and with the $58 two-course lunch deal at Aria Brisbane (Eagle Street Pier, 1 Eagle St, Brisbane, 07 3233 2555), a foray needn't impact the bottom line, either.

Black Bird (Riverside Centre, 123 Eagle St, Brisbane, 07 3229 1200) works whether clients want to be seen or fêted secretly in one of two private rooms.

With its encyclopedic wine list and classic approach, Il Centro (Shop 6, Eagle Street Pier, 1 Eagle St, Brisbane, 07 3221 6090) has catered to captains of industry for decades.

Saké (Level 1, 45 Eagle Street Pier, 1 Eagle St, Brisbane, 07 3015 0557) is another safe bet for discreet dealings, with a range of screened spaces to choose from.

At Moo Moo (Stamford Plaza, 39 Edward St, Brisbane, 07 3236 4500) even the finance department can't have a beef with a weekday $45 prix fixe.

Chic The Euro (181 Mary St, Brisbane, 07 3229 2686) puts brio into bistro.

Progressive Middle Eastern fare at Gerard's Bistro (14/15 James St, Fortitude Valley) and fine-diner Esquire (145 Eagle St, Brisbane, 07 3220 2123) or its quirky, more casual offshoot Esq will impress creatives and millennials.

If it's likely to take time to seal the deal, try the artful dégustation at GOMA Restaurant (Gallery Of Modern Art, Stanley Pl, South Bank, 07 3842 9916).
