Winter in Brisbane is well and truly upon us and if you’re a keen foodie on the hunt for a warming menu that’s healthy and affordable, fear not! The latest winter menu from Blackbird Bar and Grill has you covered.
Let’s face it; there are numerous reasons to pay a visit to this restaurant. If you’ve visited before you’ll know the views of the Brisbane Story Bridge are all in its glory while you lounge amongst the decedent and luxurious décor. The opulent appeal to the restaurant will transport you into a scene of the Great Gatsby movie.
We all know what you are reading this for and that’s the delicious winter menu which is what’s really important here.
Executive Head Chef Jake Nicholson has created a comforting menu with precision and a focus on contemporary and wholesome food. A sugar free favourite was that particularly stood out was the Cassoulet, which incorporated confit duck and braised white beans, sausage and crusty bread – slow cooked to maintain and amplify nutrients + keep the meat succulently tender. Only set you back $18, a light breakfast is is highly recommended as it’s sure to keep you satisfied for a good few hours. With plenty of protein, this winter warmer was a winner on the menu.
An array of burgers and sandwiches are also available to fill those hungry tummies. Blackbird’s gourmet burger and sandwich range is not your average greasy burger that may come to mind when you associate burgers for lunch. Try the Smoked Rainbow Trout Bagel with horseradish, watercress, cream cheese and beetroot relish and that will certainly display a wholesome and healthier alternative. The Watercress Salad is the perfect side with fresh pear, crunchy walnuts and blue cheese for a rich flavour twist, it’s the perfect balance of good fats and minimal natural sugars.
Obviously desserts aren’t on the sugar free radar when dining out and thankfully Blackbird has an extensive assortment of cheese. Choose from local and imported varieties, including cheddar (UK), semi hard cheese (Netherlands) and one from closer to home, the triple creamed brie (Queensland).
Wholeheartedly approved for sugar free and gluten free diners, Blackbird Bar and Grill has a range of healthy options to accompany its scenic dining experience, right in the heart of Brisbane. Looking for catering? Blackbird Bar and Grill is happy to help you out with your function needs too.
