Watt Modern Dining reflects Brisbane's laid-back, modern approach to dining. As they say in Queensland, "it's all about lifestyle". Watt offers two very different dining options. Inside, warm tones of butter, chocolate and malt welcome you into a fresh, contemporary environment, whilst the minimalist outdoor area forms the perfect frame for the Brisbane River back-drop.FOOD & BEVERAGE
Don't let the chic decor fool you into thinking the prices will match. The average price of breakfast is around $10 and lunch around $18.50- sensational prices considering the quality of the food. The really fantastic thing about this restaurant is that it changes its identity depending on the hour of the day. It's a busy breakfast cafe in the morning, a coffee shop mid-morning, a bistro at lunch and an atmospheric restaurant at night. And what's more, you can drop in to 'graze' from 10am until late.PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
Watt Modern Dining has recently undergone some serious refurbishments to enhance its already stunning location and atmosphere. Perched alongside the Brisbane River, Watt has always been about enjoying the Queensland climate al fresco style and that hasnt changed. But now the formerly open-to-the-elements seating has been transformed into a sophisticated all weather dining area that can be protected if the need arises. This means that during the colder winter months you can still enjoy the feel of outdoor dining whilst not freezing you patooty off.
The new design is asymmetrical and arty to fit in with its location alongside the New Farm Powerhouse Museum. Whilst the arty feel of the place has been enhanced, the food has not changed, still boasting a high standard. Delicious morsels such as the Sand crab tian served with cucumber, avocado and smoked tomato grace the menu. The Char grilled Moreton Bay bugs with creamy lemon caper risotto and gremolata are mouth wateringly good. Kobe cuisine wagyu with parmesan mash, asparagus and battered onion rings, however will have to wait for a fatter pay packet. With quality cheeses from Victoria, France and Italy a cheese plate to finish vies for position against a creative and visually impressive dessert menu. OPENING TIMES
