Mosconi

Fortitude Valley

Mosconi is chic 2 level European wine bar and restaurant found in an old war igloo in Fortitude Valley, just off James St.

Occupying one of 3 ex-World War II surplus buildings in a line, Mosconi would have to be one of Brisbane's most unique and charming venues - a real hidden treasure that is worth seeking out.

Decor at Mosconi is Euro-chic, with curved timber bar, mosaic floors, marble-topped tables, banquettes and Bentwood chairs. On the ground floor is the bar and a handful of dining tables and chairs while upstairs under the curved tin roof is a cosy intimate dining room with timber floors, back-lighting and wraparound wine wall in one corner.

Here guests can indulge in some of the best food in the Valley or simply pop in and enjoy a glass or more of wine.

Maina are equally delectable with the likes of Moreton Bay bug ravioli, crustacean oil and saltbush; Homemade pipe regate with duck ragu, guanciale and crispy sage both recommended.

Even the sides are divine - think broccolini with celeriac cream and grounded nuts; young potatoes with garlic and pecorino pepato or zucchini, asparagus, pea and radish salad.
