With a menu of modern fare with Asian, Middle Eastern, and European influences and a terrific wine list, Watt is one of my favorite places to eat out in Brisbane -- partly because of the riverside setting in New Farm Park, and partly because of the great food. Whether it's for a leisurely weekend breakfast, lunch, or dinner before a show at the Brisbane Powerhouse, dishes are always interesting, such as the Gippsland rack of lamb with pumpkin and eggplant kasaundi, lamb kofta, and dried rose petals; or local barramundi with beetroot and citrus risotto, steamed asparagus, and vanilla-bean butter sauce. The entire place was given a revamp in mid-2006. The Park Lounge is great for drinks and light meals before the theater.
