The wait is finally over and Les Bubbles is officially open for business. Owner, Damian Griffiths has had much success with the rest of his ventures (Alfred & Constance, Kwan Brothers, Doughnut Time, Chester Street Bakery) and I can see Les Bubbles heading in the same track. Opened in what was an old an old brothel, the iconic building has helped set the atmosphere for the Parisian inspired steak house.
They offer one main meal on the menu, Steak Frites, the national French dish. This one dish, is cooked to absolute perfection, so much so that I have been dreaming about their mouth watering steak all week. I would claim this to be Brisbane’s best steak. They also offer bottomless frites with every dish, definitely a winner. The steak comes with the option of three sauces, Sauce Cafe De Paris, Bearnaise Sauce or Green Peppercorn & Cognac Sauce. I opted for the Bearnaise which was rich and wholesome.
There are also 8 signature desserts on offer, priced at around $16. I will admit, the dessert servings are very generous, so I would opt to share one between two people. I chose the Bombe Alaska which was perfection on a plate. Vanilla Cake with Coconut Ice-cream, Mango Sorbet and Italian Meringue, what more could a girl ask for.
If you haven’t already tried out the controversial steak house, I would suggest making a booking ASAP! They are open 7 days a week from 5 pm.
