Nantucket Kitchen & Bar
Although it's part of the Indooroopilly shopping development, this feels nothing like a run-of-the-mill shopping centre restaurant.
Indro now has a place called Nantucket
Where they cook up a mean lamb cutlet
There's a long list of wine, which tastes very fine
And food so good you could... eat it all day.
No, really. A coup for the west, Nantucket Kitchen & Bar serves everything from breakfast through to dessert with a huge range of share plates and starters to keep you happy any time of the day.
Stepping into Nantucket is a trip to the Hamptons. Lots of white walls, pale wood and greenery make up the interior, and the large space is split into smaller rooms (somewhat like a house) by the bar in the centre, false terrace and large open kitchen. While still jumping on the American food bandwagon, that's still proving popular as ever, the restaurant brings a refreshing touch of class to the table.
Mains are based around the grill, and they sure do it well. The Tasmanian lamb cutlets with a honey mustard glaze were incredibly tender and juicy, as was the dry-aged rib on the bone. While served with a garnish, you're expected to order sides too. These range from mac & cheese to green beans, cauliflower gratin to crispy potatoes and the serves are generous.
You're already full? That's too bad because dessert is not worth missing. The macaron ice-cream sandwich may sound like sacrilege to laduree lovers everywhere, but of anything it is an ode to the crispy biscuit. It is served with a scoop of vanilla bean ice-cream in between and blueberry jam on top. The chocolate and salted caramel tart goes beyond expected with a layered biscuit base, then crisp salted caramel praline before the rich chocolate tart tops it off with a side of honeycomb ice-cream.
As part of the new Indooroopilly shopping development, Nantucket Kitchen & Bar feels nothing like a run-of-the-mill shopping centre restaurant – and this is clearly the intention. Entry is from the outside only and the venue sits in good company with Ole Fuego, Harajuku Gyoza and The Mero also part of this new micro-precinct.
