Corbett & Claude Brisbane City
More than 100 years ago, Corbett Chambers was known as the go-to meeting place for commercial travellers in Brisbane. Groups would gather with friends and fellow adventurers before travelling to isolated towns, sharing stories and meals with a drink in hand. Drawing inspiration from the old dining hall, Corbett & Claude’s focus is on shared food done well. Small plates include grilled haloumi with peach and muscatel chutney, and pan-fried gnocchi with house-made pesto, which can be paired with a wide range of pizzas, such as special meatballs with caramelised onion, crispy prosciutto and barbecue sauce, or grilled prawns with rocket and chilli jam. Meat and cheese lovers can build their own charcuterie board with a selection of accompaniments – you’ll drool over the choices of artisan cheese and fancy cured meats. One thing you may not want to share though is dessert – treat yourself with waffles topped with toasted honey ice-cream, salted caramel and honeycomb, or Nutella and strawberry dessert pizza. Walking up to the long tiled bar you will quickly spy an impressive 12-tap system, which pours craft beer – including Corbett & Claude’s own house lager – and a selection of wines, as well as a wide range of spirits and colourful cocktails.
