New $35 dinner menu was a great excuse to finally visit Vintaged Bar + Grill. Available Sunday to Friday between 5 – 9pm, the menu features 6 signature specials accompanied by a glass of wine, craft beer or a soft drink.
To kick off the night we were invited to the wine room where we enjoyed a glass of sparkling. A very impressive place for wine lovers, everyone is allowed inside to handpick and sample their chosen wine form a 1000 bottle strong collection.
A couple of other Brisbane foodies and me were seated at the Chefs Table. It was designed as a more relaxed and interactive space and is a great vantage point to watch chefs working, with a backdrop of a beautiful meat-ageing cabinet.
My pick from the $35 dinner menu was 250g Black Angus beef sirloin with triple cooked chips, bearnaise and salad. Beautiful tender meat, triple cooked chips that take 2 hours to prepare as they’re steamed, baked and fried and not only bearnaise but some additional mustards made a great feast. I also tasted a bit of pumpkin cannelloni and thirlmere duck leg confit that Melissa had, and the extra-moist duck was the winner for me.
To finish off the night we were also able to try some desserts (they are not a part of the $35 menu, but are available from the regular one). Chocolate tart, mango pannacotta, tiramisu, pistachio, chocolate and raspberry macarons and deconstructed sundae with salted caramel sauce. All that looked beautiful and judging by the mmmmmm sounds around the table they were a great way to finish the night.
