Restaurant Amuse
Modern Australian
Restaurant Amuse

The setting might be suburban, but the outlook at Restaurant Amuse remains global. Few Perth chefs track international cooking trends as closely as Hadleigh Troy, yet progress never comes at the cost of originality or delectability. Intensely sweet carrot juice, reduced for days until syrupy, stars alongside puffed rice, pine-nut granola and ricotta in one of the city's finest vegetarian numbers. Redthroat emperor, meanwhile, finds an ideal foil in dainty florets of fried cauliflower and crunchy sea succulents. Marron continues to be a highlight: a current iteration sees delicate slices of raw tail meat woven with dashi-poached tapioca pearls before shards of linseed cracker are added for crunch. It's thoughtful, modern stuff, befitting a dining room as smooth as this. Drinks are as forward-thinking as the food - from cult wines to off-beat craft beers - while the service remains as fluid and accomplished as ever.
