It might be pouring with rain, but Perth is on fire with three brand new eateries officially opening today, just in time for the long weekend!
Three day weekend. Three new spots. Coincidence? I think not.
It's no secret we're pretty crazy about Il Lido in Cottesloe, so imagine our excitement when they announced they'd be opening up Canteen Pizza just down the road. They've got one of Australia's finest pizza pros, Ettore Bertonati on board to set things up so you can expect simple yet mouth-watering pizza. There are also some more substantial mains on the menu and, just as you'd expect from the guys behind Il Lido, an incredible wine list. Open from 5:30pm each night this weekend, they'll be starting lunch service next week on Tuesday. Get there pronto.
La Vida Urbana
From the legends that brought us El Publico, La Vida Urbana has opened in Leederville and you can expect the same tasty Mexican eats with a slightly more casual vibe. Open for breakfast and lunch for now (though word on the street is that they'll be doing dinner soon enough), you can expect a Mexican spin on your favourite breakfasts and street eats for lunch. But the best bit? You're welcome to just drop in for a drink anytime. Margarita anyone?
While Dogtown doesn't necessarily sound like the most appealing spot for a bite to eat, Dogtown Beerfood opens on Beaufort Street today and will be dishing out epic burgers and brews from WA's own Feral Brewery. They're also doing fried chicken and tacos—beer food at its very best.
