Newstead

Bosco is one of Brisbane's most moodily striking restaurants, fire-powered and found off the beaten track in a black Newstead warehouse that is a  longtime home to Brewbakers bakery, which still operates from the rear of the space.

Step through the entrance to find an exquisite high-ceilinged cavernous space with handful of bar tables leading to the dining room, which is lined by a bar and open kitchen along once side and rows of tables partitioned by sheer curtains on the other.

The entire experience at Bosco is a feast for the senses, from the decor (this has to be one of the most aesthetic restaurants in Brisbane) to the exquisite food, which is cooked in full view over the parilla grill or the custom-made wood-fired oven.

The delectable Mediterranean-flavoured seasonal menu is ever-changing and derives from the coastal and olive oil regions of Spain, France and Italy.
