La Dolce Vita Brunch
Howard Smith Wharves' rooftop bar is doing Sunday boozy brunches throughout spring and summer.
No one needs an excuse to welcome in their Sunday with a boozy brunch, but Fiume Bar atop the Crystalbrook Vincent just came up with a new one anyway. Pairing your meal and drinks with a killer view is always reason enough to get up, and get eating and sipping — and the vantage from Howard Smith Wharves' resident rooftop bar sure is mighty spectacular.
Wherever you find yourself at this inner-city precinct, you'll be staring at the Brisbane River. You may as well take a gander while you're enjoying a three-course Italian brunch, though, and knocking back cocktails, spritzes, beers and wine. That's what's on the menu at Fiume's La Dolce Vita Brunch, which run every Sunday through spring and summer from Sunday, September 12–Sunday, February 27.
Your $115 ticket will nab you multiple choices when it comes to each course, so hazelnut and coffee castagnoles (aka mini Italian-style doughnuts), a pain au chocolate, chargrilled watermelon with parma ham, and a potato and thyme terrine topped with a poached egg could be in your future.
Drinks-wise, you'll be saying cheers for two hours, including with mimosas, bloody marys, spritzes, prosecco, wine and Italian beers. And, you can choose between 10am–12pm or 12.30–2.30pm sessions (because yes, on weekends, brunch can start after midday if you want it to).
