Food to walk for: Perth’s newest progressive dinner with a difference
Five-star food and funky street art will be combined on a progressive dinner with a twist during Perth City’s ‘Eat Drink Perth’ festival next month.
Award-winning tour company Two Feet & a Heartbeat will take diners on an intimate progressive dining experience to three of the city’s top new restaurants, while giving an overview of the major changes shaping Perth and the history of some of the city’s unique pieces of public art.
Two Feet co-founder and guide Ryan Zaknich said the aim of the tour was to not only satisfy the tastebuds of diners but also their curiosity about how Perth was changing.
“We can all see the big things happening in the city – like new buildings and developments – but there are lots of subtle things having a really positive impact on the public’s experience of the city,” Mr Zaknich said.
“We’re seeing more heritage-listed and disused spaces being activated, which is really transforming the city.”
Beginning at the Perth Town Hall, the Two Feet dinner heads to Print Hall for freshly shucked oysters or charcuterie and a glass of wine and a chat with Perth’s renowned oyster-shucker, Jerry Fraser.
The small group will then move on to the historic setting of Lamont’s Bishops House. Built in the late 1800′s, Bishops House was a private home for nearly 100 years before recently being converted by a name synonymous with food and wine in Western Australia. Here, diners will have a choice of main course from a Chef’s set menu and also a glass of quality Western Australian wine.
Before the final course, diners will be taken on a short walk to explore some of the interesting pieces of public art in the CBD with an explanation of what the artist was trying to achieve with each piece of work.
Dessert will be served in a private dining room at the recently opened and internationally acclaimed Terrace Hotel. Once a boarding house, it is now a premium venue listed as one of the best places to stay and eat in Australia. A selection of cheese will be supplied and compliments with a glass of dessert wines selected by the on-site sommelier who will also discuss the wine cellar and the intricacies associated.
“The tour is designed to give diners a delicious, five-star dining experience and a real appreciation about how Perth is ‘growing up’.
“Not only will we showcase the newest venues that are receiving rave reviews, but we will also show them a side of the city they have never seen.”
