Très bien! Auchenflower celebrates the arrival of French-inspired Eiffel Restaurant

After two years educating Fortitude Valley residents on the ins and outs of French cuisine, the team behind Eiffel Restaurant (formerly The French Food Shop) has picked up its foundations and moved suburbs. Ghislan and Selma Pourbaix are seizing the opportunity to spread their wings and take their offering to new levels, taking a fine-dining approach to French and European-inspired cuisine that is already having Auchenflower eaters exclaiming ‘mon dieu!’ more

The Weekend Series: five binge-worthy food shows you should queue up

We’re a sucker for a good cooking show, and we’re not ashamed to admit it. From Ready Steady Cook to the Great British Bake Off, the high stakes drama of the kitchen is something we’ll relish the opportunity to view. A new breed of food shows are hitting our screens thanks to the miracle of Netflix, allowing us to feast on food porn of the highest quality. If you have a craving to binge some stellar food-oriented media, you can’t do much better than the crew we’ve assembled here. Don a bib and get comfortable – you’ll be drooling by the end of the first episode. more

Creatures of the night – GOMA announces its final act for the Piccinini edition of Up Late

Many people tend to come out of their shells after dark. The night has long been associated with things getting a bit freaky, with the cover of darkness allowing us to be our true selves. Under this rationale, it makes perfect sense that one of our city’s most alluring attractions is perhaps best experienced by night. Patricia Piccinini’s Curious Affection is getting the famous GOMA Up Late treatment, bringing a host of eclectic musicians and the chance to see the exhibit after hours. Coming to the Gallery from June 8 to July 6, the program packs a serious punch to match the weird and wonderful nature of Patricia’s groundbreaking exhibit. more

Whether you are choosing to join in on the commemorative events or spending the day with family and friends, it’s handy to know that there are places around town that will be open and trading throughout the day.

Meet your maker – Artisan craft and design studio makes the move to King Street

When it comes to the Brisbane, there are some pretty iconic names floating around that have played an integral part in shaping our unique arts and culture landscape. One of these names is Artisan, the not-for-profit organisation that has been dedicated to supporting and promoting contemporary craft and design practice for both makers and their audiences since 1970. Following a 20-year stint on the Brunswick Street strip, Artisan is heading to a brand-new home at the thriving King Street precinct. more

Elevate your basics – Silk Laundry opens its anticipated James Street boutique

Few materials add as much a sense of luxury to our lives as silk. Soft to the touch and sweet on the eyes, there’s a reason that the phrase ‘silky smooth’ is so commonly used. Silk Laundry is a sustainability-focused label that specialises in silk basics for everyday wear. If you like the sound of that, then you’ll like the sound of this – Silk Laundry is opening its first bricks-and-mortar store on James Street this Saturday April 21. more

Green with envy – the other side of the Gold Coast that you really need to discover

When it's time for a weekend escape, an overnighter or a day trip, the Gold Coast is generally one of the first spots that springs to mind. Hey, we don't blame you – who doesn't want to spend hours relaxing by the beach with a latte in hand, strolling along the coast, dining by the seaside and returning home with an enviable sun-kissed glow? We're big fans of kicking it beachside and hitting the surf for our getaways, but (as with most things) we decided to delve a little deeper ... into the other side of the Gold Coast – the hinterland. Don't worry, we're not talking about venturing into the depths of the bush where there's no phone reception – lucky, because the hinterland is very Instagrammable. The magic is a lot closer than you think. more
