When Corbett & Claude opened their first eatery in Indooroopilly in August, a piece of the puzzle was missing. The restaurant is named for architect Claude Chambers, who designed the Corbett Chambers building on Elizabeth Street, so setting up shop in the western suburbs rather than the CBD didn't quite seem fitting.
That was just step one in unleashing a new source of historically minded tastiness to Brisbane, with the newly launched city outlet step two. That means there's now double the places to grab a drink, listen to live music and enjoy the share plates, pizzas and antipasti that comprises their menu.
Wine as well as beer on tap is a great way to start any Corbett & Claude meal, as is one of their three signature cocktails. From there, picking one of the ten types of pizza is a harder choice, though the C&C special with meatballs, caramelised onion, crispy prosciutto and barbecue sauce is a certain favourite. Those after a deli-style snack can mix and match from a selection of cheeses and meats to suit their preferences. And when it comes to something sweet, a dessert pizza with nutella, hazelnuts and strawberries sounds too good to pass up — but if you must, then the waffles with honey ice cream are just as great.
