PERTH | There have been no shortage of new openings in Perth since my last visit, and one of the most recent is Vincent Wine, which opened in the old Meat Candy space in late January this year. The venue is modelled off the little neighbourhood wine bar/restaurants you find in Paris. In line with that, Vincent Wine is all about good food and wine, with a European focus.
The 200 or so bottle wine list is predominantly French, with some Italian, Australian and Kiwi wines also in amongst the list. What’s available by the glass rotates daily, and can be found written on the walls. There’s also spirits, with a cognac and Armagnac focus, along with French wine cask finished whiskey and a beer of the day on tap.
Food wise, chef Andre Mahe, of recently closed Must, is heading up the kitchen. His good unfussy, fresh French bistro food. The kind of food you find in the modern Parisian venues that Vincent Wine is modelled off and exactly what you want from a venue like this.
I enjoyed steak tartare with pecorino and aioli, ricotta gnudi with sage butter and confit tomatoes, the most ridiculously good crispy potatoes with paprika and sour cream, big eye tuna carpaccio with watermelon and avocado, and Baharat lamb meatballs with chickpeas and chorizo. All outstanding.
