Fenek

James Street's latest addition takes its cues from European cuisine.

BOOK A TABLE

When you name your restaurant after the Maltese word for rabbit, there's no prizes for guessing what's on the menu. At Fenek, you'll find the meat in question on pizza and with fettuccine, plus in a stew on special occasions. Now that's how you bring some intrigue to Italian-inspired, Mediterranean-style dishes.

Don't worry if that's not your protein of choice, however — the usual choices also get their chance to tempt your tastebuds at James Street's new restaurant. That includes homemade potato gnocchi with roast duck, chilli prawns and lamb rump, aka a nice blend of the usual and the not-so, but not in that particular order.

As you settle down for a bite a block away from the main strip of shops (i.e. heading further towards the river, rather than the Valley), it really is enough to make you forget that Italian food is almost as popular as burgers and doughnuts in Brisbane. Thrown in fried, crumbed cauliflower with truffle aioli as a side and rich chocolate fondant for dessert, and that's your next New Farm dinner well and truly sorted.
