This Perth gem, sporting the same name as a New York staple, has been around since the 90s but it didn’t shine until its transformation in 2016. The refined European wine-bar-meets-dining-room aesthetic has given way to a more casual ambience, ideal for group gatherings and celebrations.

The $95 dinner set menu also makes it easy for groups, given it’s all laid out for you, and people can pick and choose what they want to eat. The extensive menu features three entrées: a mushroom ricotta tartlet, duck liver parfait, and cured market fish. For mains, a few highlights include the cauliflower risotto, seafood spaghetti, and duck breast. Then for dessert, tuck into some cheese or a chocolate mousse.

Nestled in the Old Synagogue near Freo’s markets is Tonic + Ginger, where diners will find themselves in an old-world charm and a cathedral-like setting. Indulge in their Asian-inspired shared menu at a reasonable $69 per person. The only catch: the entire table has to choose the Feed Me Menu. The menu includes bites like crispy pork belly, prawn and snapper dumplings before diving into the bigger grazing plates, including Korean fried chicken wings and fried soft-shell crab. For main feasting, expect stir-fried noodles, curries, and more.

Revel in saffron taleggio arancini and textbook-perfect rigatoni all’Amatriciana, or a standout pork cotoletta.

There are several options for private dining rooms catering to between 15-100 guests, depending on the room.
