Pearl Cafe

So by now, we all know about Daniel Lewis and how he was at the Gunshop and how he has now opened his own little French cafe at the Gabba, called Pearl. Everyone is saying how much Pearl lives up to its name: it's classy, neat, old-school and retro, delicious, elegant and cheapish.

All I can think about is how I have to go there as soon as possible. And I have to go to Piaf soon, too. Here's the CM review of Pearl, and also one from Gourmet Traveller.

Meanwhile, I found a list over at the blog of fellow Brisbaneite Tim Foote. He's got his favourite cafes, watering holes and food stops listed in categories like 'Atmospheric Delights' and 'Posh as hell, but worth it'. Definitely worth a peek: I've been to most of his list and he's pretty spot-on.

Piaf isn't bad, I went there last weekend. I wasn't feeling too fantastic, and so had a cup of green tea... well, don't have the green tea. The food was quite scrumptuous, and I have heard the food is very, very good. Very reasonably priced, too. Sadly, I didn't enjoy it as much as some of my other haunts... it might take another few visits before it makes the list.

Oh, and cheers for the comments, too :) I'm glad you approve of my taste.
