Sage spring dinner menu share plates

Sage in Victoria Park has been running as a cafe, dishing up killer breakfasts, lunches, coffees and juices for a few years now—but earlier this year they answered our prayers and extended their culinary skills into the dinner department, and gosh it might even be better than their boozy bottomless brunches (which yes, they also do exceptionally well).

Their new spring menu is the very best of modern Australian cuisine—refined, sophisticated and mop-your-plate-clean level tasty. Start your meal with a few refreshing and punchy small plates (think beetroot cured salmon with avocado, wasabi and samphire, and an extremely creamy, delightfully presented burrata with pickled apples and basil oil), then throw in some toasted focaccia, with dukkah and extra virgin olive oil for good measure.

For something more substantial, we’re vibing the Fremantle octopus with romesco, zesty chimichurri, and crunchy roast potatoes, but you also can’t go past a serve of the gnocchi oxtail ragu, topped off with rosemary, orange and parmesan.

Vegetarians will find plenty to love too (almost half of the dishes are vego), with flavour-packed faves like their yogurt cauliflower fritto with chermoula and whipped goat’s cheese hitting all the right spots. 

No matter what you choose, all dishes are perfect for sharing, which is great as you’ll want to try a bit of everything. But if you are still struggling to choose, you can always go for the $65 ‘feed me, i’m hungry’ option and just get them to bring you a bit of everything. We suggest you pay the extra $40 for matched wines and make a night of it if you’re going down this route.

And speaking of wines, you’ll find a small-ish but beautifully curated list dominated by local drops with a few international labels thrown in for good measure. If you’re not vibing the vino, there are also some great West Aussie beers and a cocktail list that makes it almost impossible to choose just one. Our pick is the Pigskin Negroni—Pigskin pink gin, Campari, Silvio Carta red vermouth, and orange—but we've also got our eyes on the Anna Pavlova and the Med Margarita which has a creative basil twist.
