Our restaurant critics' picks of the latest and best eats around the country right now: Post, Perth.
Where too many Perth hotel restaurants feel like afterthoughts, Post leaves the distinct impression that Como The Treasury is really looking out for its guests. Not that you have to be staying in-house to appreciate the dining room's charms.
Chef Kim Brennan's dishes are smart and direct: an expertly rendered duck breast and a son-in-law-style fried egg lolling in a vivid pea purée, for instance.
In what might come as a pleasant shock to some, even Post's health-minded Shambhala spa options hit the spot, whether it's a spiced roast chicken with tahini yoghurt sauce to the deluxe avocado on nut-and-seed "real toast" served at breakfast (pictured above).
It's a compelling, comprehensive food offering, made all the more likeable by the freshness of the dining room and the cheery service. A fine excuse to check out the city's hot new eating and drinking precinct, if you need one.
Post, 1 Cathedral Ave, Perth, WA, (08) 6168 7888. Open daily 6:30am-10.30pm.
