Preston Praises Brisbane

Blackbird Bar & Restaurant

Food critic and MasterChef judge Matt Preston says he is excited about the explosion of Brisbane’s food scene.

"What has happened in Brisbane in the last four years is there has been this crazy expansion in dining," he said.

"That was at the top end, but what has happened now is all the pop-up stuff going on."

Preston dropped mentions to Jake Nicolson’s new Blackbird Bar & Grill and Fortitude Valley favourite Gerard’s Bistro.
