Patina – Opening Soon
Brisbane City is set to welcome a new riverside restaurant later this month, when Patina opens its doors on August 23. The contemporary restaurant will reside at the heritage-listed Customs House, taking over the space previously occupied by Customs House Restaurant. Executive chef John Offenhauser (ex-chef de cuisine and sous chef at Marco Polo at the Treasury Hotel) has crafted a share-style menu showcasing local seafood and seasonal produce, working closely with local farmers and even growing his own mushrooms in an on-site cellar. The menu is broken into various sized share plates, including the likes of chargrilled octopus with smoked tomato, olive, basil and mozzarella, grilled oyster mushrooms with shitake cream, stracciatella and tarragon oil, and slow-cooked lamb shoulder with black-garlic hummus, harissa yoghurt, pomegranate and flat breads.
