Behind the duck

Nicholas Cooper

Deer Duck owner, Nicholas, is the visionary behind the Deer Duck restaurant concept.

Nicholas has decorated the restaurant with a delightful flair for interior design, exhibiting a collection of beautiful antiques, ornate gold frames, mixed cutlery and plate styles, divine lamps, paintings and prints amongst other feature pieces (acquired from a passion for the finer things in life). The conception of the ‘Deer Duck Bistro’ is aimed at offering as exquisite dining experience shaped to encourage return visits. His vision stems from a solid background of 25 years working as a chef in Melbourne and Brisbane. The completeness of his approach is unique to Brisbane, combining an authentic atmosphere with an immaculate attention to detail.

The interior furnishings are the perfect backdrop of antiquity with themed ‘deer’ artwork and contemporary mural art. Each table setting is individual, serving the culinary delights of Head Chef Chris Hagan, to be relished beneath intimate candle or antique lamp light. Deer Duck Bistro is a visual, sound and taste renaissance experience, to enjoy classic modern Australian, European cuisine.
