Brisbane City Council has released a new eating and drinking guide for consumers, called dish.

The guide highlights a range of the CBD’s foodservice businesses, ranging from fine diners to cheap eats.

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said dish offers both local and visiting food lovers the chance to rediscover the CBD’s restaurants and bars.

“Brisbane CBD has a fantastic restaurant and cafe scene featuring some of the Australia’s best chefs, delivering a wide range of culinary options,” Quirk said.

“There is always something new to explore in the CBD and dish will provide a great starting point for your foodie adventure.”

dish profiles restaurants, cafes, high tea venues, laneway and basement venues, bars, take-away offerings and more, while also profiling some of the city’s foodservice operators, including Tim Johnson from Corbett & Claude and Giuseppe Petroccitto, who oversees venues including Chocolate Soldier, Bellezza Espresso Bar and Espresso Veloce.

The inaugural guide is guest edited by chef Matt Moran, who said Brisbane CBD’s food scene come has a long way in recent years.

“The Brisbane City dining scene has definitely shifted up a gear and just keeps on getting better,” Moran said. “There are more offerings now than ever before, from fine dining to something more casual, espresso nooks to cafes, or pubs to pop-ups.”

Dish also includes a directory of local businesses and a map of the city.
