Long live the long lunch. It oozes more Mad-Men-like sophistication than a 10am scotch from a crystal decanter.
In the spirit of keeping this indulgent tradition alive, we’ve rounded up the hosts that are most likely to keep you in your seat until the dinner rush.
With a wine list that dwarves its short but impressive share plate and mains menu, Lamont's lunch just keeps on coming up with the goods. With all the on-the-money wine recommendations and the ambiance of this cosy half bottleshop, half restaurant space, you won’t be tempted to check your watch.
The Trustee Bar & Bistro
The wheelers and dealers of the Perth city office towers know to head to Trustee for an immersive lunch experience. Aaaand let me just put this in here… oysters natural with red wine vinaigrette, prawn linguine with blue cheese, vanilla crème brulee. Sounds good, right?
Loosen your tie and continue the Subi tradition of a long pub lunch at the Subiaco Hotel. Knock back afternoon beers and choice pub fare while Rokeby Road, and the rest of your work day, rolls on by.
Watch the sun roll over the horizon as you cling on to your lunchtime for dear life at The Shorehouse. Head Chef Olivier Gould has put up a delectable menu of contemporary Australian fare with Mediterranean influences. Grab the Fruit De Mer (that’s seafood platter in ‘straylian), a bespoke gin and tonic or one of their many Bloody Marys.
Bistro Des Artistes
Alain Fabregues authentic French bistro, Bistro Des Artistes, will keep you firmly in your seat during your three-hour lunch hour. Sip on champagne and nosh on traditional French fare like steak tartare or duck confit. Two and three course pre-fix available or take your time with the a la carte.
Bread In Common
12 til late is what is printed atop the menu at Fremantle’s Bread in Common—and who better to test that out than you. You're gonna stuff yourself full of that amazing woodfired bread for sure, then you’ll move on through the rest of that delectable menu—pork belly, rib eye, duck fat roast potatoes. Just work it menu. Work it.
Lash out for your marathon lunch at the restaurant du jour, Post, the sleek neo-French restaurant on the bottom floor of the state buildings. You can dine on the likes of Wagin dry aged duck, sweet potato, fennel and citrus or turn to the Como Shambhala cuisine, which is more health focused.
Head to beachside Italian trattoria Il Lido and find yourself eating and drinking until sunset. It’s the perfect opportunity to brush up on your knowledge of Italian wines and the perfect opportunity to enjoy life.
Shadow Wine Bar
Shadow Wine Bar is a sexy lunch destination below the uber trendy Alex Hotel. Devour some tasty nosh, drink wine, book yourself into the hotel and then stumble on to the next unsuspecting watering hole in good ol’ NB.
