Brisbane's hottest restaurants

The Australian's list of Australia's hottest 50 restaurants is out and Brisbane has managed to score five entries.

Included were -

Pablo Tordesillas, Ortiga.

Ortiga, Fortitude Valley
Ortiga has won awards on many levels and continues to prove it's dominance in the Brisbane food landscape. A perfect accompaniment to a trip to GOMA to see Portrait of Spain: Masterpieces from the Prado

Alejandro Cancino

Urbane Brisbane CBD
New Chef Alejandro Cancino continues the tradition of innovation at Urbane with a menu that delights on so many levels. 

Petit fours at Seaduction
Seaduction, Surfers Paradise
Lifting the food offering at Surfers to a new level, Seaduction delivers on both food and position.

Ben Devlin, Ryan Squires and Cameron Murchison are the brains behind Esquire.

Esquire, Brisbane CBD
Brisbane's only three hat restaurant is no surprise on this list.

Alastair McLeod, Executive Chef, Tank

Tank, Brisbane CBD
I lunched at Tank recently and enjoyed both the food and the presentation of dishes with sauces and smokes to amuse and beguile.

Outside the Top 50 but on The Australian's must do list for Queensland were-

Stokehouse at Southbank
Stokehouse, South Bank, Brisbane
Alchemy, Brisbane CBD
Sake, Brisbane CBD
Helenika, Gold Coast
Wasabi Noosa, Sunshine Coast
