Brisbane's flagship French destination is now bigger, brighter and better. A relocation has added grandeur, without diluting Montrachet's Old World ambience. Aged timber flooring, gilt-framed mirrors and burgundy leather banquettes are all present, but the handsome marble-topped comptoir is now bordered by a glassed-in cellar, as befits a list loaded with namesake chardonnay and Grands Crus. Never short on ambition, the kitchen team soars while service standards have also stepped up. Gallic classics are en pointe; an assertive onion soup arrives topped with rich, salty-sweet Gruyère toasts, while steak frites come with a sharply dressed salad, bronzed frites and a flawless fillet. Then, there's coral trout brightened by a citrus butter brioche sauce. Ethereal apricot soufflé displays all the finesse you'd expect. And yes, the crème brûlée is a cracker.
