Harvey's Bar & Bistro
Harvey's, a smart upmarket bistro in a cool summerhouse-style setting, is something of a James St institution thanks to its eponymous chef PJ McMillan.
Whether it be for a lazy weekend breakfast or late night dessert after a film festival at the Palace, Harvey’s dishes up reliably high calibre nosh, al fresco by the fountain or in the light glass-sided interior.
Among the breakfast items to return for are the spiced mince tortillas and the potato rosti, creamed corn and herb salsa with poached eggs or ricotta milk pancakes..
For lunch and dinner you can enjoy the likes of Berbere spiced quail with pumpkin puree, pistachios and pickled cherries or Coral Coast barramundi, crushed potatoes and asparagus. Combined with an interesting carefully selected wine list, this is all are all part of the experience that makes Harveys a longtime Brisbane favourite.
