Tre Amici in Northbridge. A progressive five-course lunch up and down William Street. Laneway feasts on Beaufort Street. Perth, it would seem, can’t get enough of progressive dinners. Now venues in the city’s west end are getting in on the action.
The Flour Factory, Market Grounds, Tiny’s, Varnish on King and Heno & Rey at the Inter Contintental have launched The West End Tour, a three-course, progressive dinner across the CBD.
One of the details that distinguishes The West End Tour from other roving dinners is that guests not only choose where to have their entree and mains, but have two choices at each venue, including a vegetarian option. Starters are a toss-up between the fig buratta or grilled prawns at Market Grounds, or the smoked pork or smoked pumpkin at Tiny’s. For mains, it’s either the pork jowl or potato gnocchi at Flour Factory, or the succotash or mac‘n’cheese at Varnish on King.
The feast ends at the InterContinental’s tapas bar Heno & Rey and one final decision between the dark chocolate torta or warm churros with chocolate.
“It was a no-brainer to combine super powers and give the people the platter of cuisine choices they deserve,” says Andrew McGie, director of restaurants and bars at the InterContinental Perth.
The West End Tour is $60 and includes a dish and cocktail at each venue (individual payment required at each venue). The tour is available Monday to Wednesday until the end of August.
