Try the Brioche crumbed lambs brain kiev for the more adventurous to challenge your senses.  Or try the more traditional French Onion Soup or Creme Caramel.  And if that does not inspire see if the foie gras terrine or the glazed confit duck is on the menu.  Anise has many seasonal highlights and all are well crafted. 697 Brunswick Street, New Farm (07 3358 1558).
