Perth-born Head Chef Kim Brennan has returned to his roots after stints at London’s Notting Hill Brasserie, Fiji’s Tokoriki Island Resort and Sydney’s Becasse. Located in the former franking room of Perth’s historical General Post Office, Post is the jewel in the crown of COMO The Treasury. Light and bright, with a living tree at its centre, the restaurant is a comfortable, welcoming space.
The French-influenced contemporary menu uses an abundance of local, seasonal produce. Barramundi with parsnip cream, kale and smoked ham broth has beautifully constructed texture layers. The rich broth complements the freshness of the fish, and brings the dish together. Tara Valley beef fillet with smoked celeriac, autumn mushrooms, black garlic and jus looks simple on the plate, but it is sure to impress. Black garlic adds an unexpected but pleasing element to this dish.
PSST! Look out for C.S. next to dish names on the menu. This signifies COMO Shambhala – meaning the dish is particularly nutritious.
