Red Cabbage
Modern Australian
Red Cabbage

Red Cabbage by name, drab grey office block by first impression - but, thankfully, little else about South Perth's leading restaurant is corporate-bland, not least the quirky, smartly appointed room. While décor choices are best described as outré Britannia, chef Scott O'Sullivan adopts a bowerbird approach to his cooking and thinking. Japanese cuisine is the kitchen's current area of interest, as signalled by marron grilled over binchotan and an aburi-seared hunk of ocean trout enhanced by curls of squid, cashew shards and a sharp spinach purée. It's intricate, artfully arranged stuff, although some dishes would benefit from editing. As busy as some of the compositions may be, however, engaging staff remain a calming presence. Ace drinks are another win for the diner, as are imaginative desserts in the vein of pumpkin and white chocolate ganache played off against savoury Cashel Blue cheese.
