A century ago, protestors marched down the streets around the State Buildings in Perth, petitioning for causes they believed in. Now, you’re more likely to see queues of people waiting to get into Petition Kitchen, the meticulously imagined bistro which adjoins Petition Beer Corner and Wine Bar.

Petition Kitchen features share plates with an emphasis on seafood – but presents a clean-slate menu. You’ll find seasonal produce with bursts of colour and texture, prepared simply yet playfully. There’s slow-cooked Fremantle octopus served with house-made kimchi; beef tartare using organic Blackwood Valley beef; and a coconut ceviche.

CBD workers benefit from the takeaway options, such as house-made toasted muesli, pastries and sandwiches.

The space was designed by Michael Patroni (Bread in Common, Strange Company). It elegantly fuses old and new, with timber flooring, black steel doors, bespoke steel and timber tables, and exposed brickwork.
