The Euro, a cutting edge chic brasserie, is a member of the tiny family of stylish bars and eateries occupying Spencer Lane.
Entry is via a laser cut metal screen set aglow by overlapping pink and green glass panels and the warm wooden dining room is dominated by the metallic ceiling and wall panels. Yet the dark wood chairs and formality of the waiters manage to give it an old world flavour.
Just like the décor the wine list is a mix of classics and top shelf contemporary wine that has been carefully matched to the dishes. And in true brasserie style the substantial menu covers a lot more ground than most restaurants of this calibre, with premium free range lamb and chicken and private selection beef available as single dishes or share meals as well as a varied selection of hand cut pastas, choice seafood and pork.
Entrees also come as shared plates or single serves and for cured meat devotees there’s a dedicated starter section featuring aged Parma Ham, Saucisson Sac, aged Jamon Serrano and Wagyu salami.
This is one of few places in Brisbane where the kitchen stays open until midnight and although it closes for the main menu between 3pm and 6pm the restaurant remains open for drinks and bar food during those hours.
