Medallions of marron sit in a mini-tureen of silken gazpacho. Gently poached leeks are flanked by jamón Ibérico and topped with a slow-cooked egg. An eggy cloud of pistachio soufflé is dusted with chocolate, its richness checked by a quenelle of cherry sorbet. Guillaume Brahimi might have interests across the country, but there's enough magic in this, his namesake diner at Crown, to make it one of Perth's finest French restaurants. Staff are gracious, opinionated and exude a winning sense of ownership that some might misinterpret as hauteur. The immaculate, light-filled dining room has a touch of the boudoir (think ornate chaises and lime green upholstery), while the French-accented wine list is just as extravagant. Dishes for two are a nice touch, including roasted Liveringa chook with Paris mash and a classic Chateaubriand with green peppercorn sauce and kipfler potatoes. This level of dining is never a gamble.
