Lutèce Bistro & Wine Bar in Bardon is the latest French cuisine venture for renowned Brisbane Chef Romain Bapst.
Offering traditional French fare, the Lutèce Bistro & Wine Bar menu has a modern twist with an Alsatian spirit, thanks to Mr Bapst’s rich Strasbourgeois heritage. The restaurant is also the only venue in Brisbane that serves the exquisite pressed duck – a rare French delicacy dating back to the 19th century.
Romain Bapst is perhaps best known in Brisbane dining circles for his 13 year tenure at Eagle Street institution II Centro, and later two years at Drift Milton and Brookwater.
