Between them, Mary Street Bakery founders Paul Aron and Michael Forde have opened some of Perth’s most important venues. Greenhouse. Cantina 663. El Publico. Ace Pizza. Tiny’s, a multifunctional, mid-century modern venue comprising a restaurant, specialty liquor store and bar, is their biggest project yet.
To eat, expect a cosmopolitan mix of southern-European and Asian flavours. A wood-fired grill coaxes maximum deliciousness out of new school sticks of yakitori (octopus and beef intercostals, say), pork belly, whole fish and other delicious things to share. The rotisserie chicken is a study in comfort dining, not least because the juicy bird is served with potatoes roasted in chook drippings. A rooftop garden across the road supplies the kitchen with the vegetables served raw and pickled on the crudites plate.
Boutique beers and wines are a focus, but the tight, considered list also has recognisable high-quality names too. Reflecting Aron’s involvement with Greenhouse, Tiny’s also champions many of QV1’s green initiatives. These include using ingredients grown in an on-site garden and diverting green waste towards a closed-loop composter.
Dedicated wine bar and bottle shop Tiny's Liquor Emporium carries a comprehensive range of wine, boutique beer and spirits and records.
