Restaurant Prison Break - Conviction Kitchen Brisbane

Conviction, the official restaurant of the TV series Conviction Kitchen opens to the public tonight in Brisbane's Emporium Complex.

Taking over the Three Bistro space for three months beside the recently closed Belle Epoque which is now Fellini's new Brisbane arm called Tartufo this is exciting times!

Now here is where it greats really interesting.  The concept of this TV show restaurant is to transform the lives of 12 ex criminals who were maybe not given the best start in life. The pressure of learning culinary, hosting and business skills in a TV show environment for seven services per week will be tough. Could be hard work for an ex-crim I say!

So what can one look forward to at Conviction?
  •  To be filmed during your meal. (table manners please, I do not want to see any knife licking patrons)
  • A unique fine dining experience and a menu based on the Europeans elegant, continental fare.
  • To be served by 12 ex-criminals.
All proceeds go to charity, so before I can blog about my experience with regard to the food or service, make your booking and experience yourself.
