On Wednesday evening last week, Dylan and I enjoyed a three-course extravaganza at Heritij Restaurant in Brisbane Quarter. We had been invited to come along to experience all the restaurant had to offer and were intrigued by the ‘fine dining Indian’ concept. As we drove in to town we agreed that we predicted a binary outcome: this was either going to be exceptional, or dismal. I’m elated to report that our experience was very much the former!
Any establishment in Brisbane Quarter is sure to impress: this precinct is fast blossoming in to a go-to playground for foodies and revellers alike. With stunning views to Southbank and imaginative open-air bars with sumptuous décor, all the venues in Brisbane Quarter offer lively ambience. What I hadn’t expected was for Heritij to be so beautiful. The fit-out is as fascinating as the menu. Firstly, the venue is huge. There is a luxe indoor/outdoor bar that is proving popular on Friday and Saturday nights. Rich navy blue, deep mahogany, metallics and glass feature throughout this area and the bar’s 90+ varieties of whisky/whiskey a focal point. It’s the perfect place to meet for a date mid-week and to party on the weekends. Heritij recently hosted their first wedding reception and I can envisage it would be a vibrant and elegant venue for such an occasion.
