A group of us visiting Fremantle WA for the AARES Conference on agricultural and resource economics were searching for a good restaurant for the last night of the Conference. There were many to choose from and where we had a limited knowledge basis for choice. The solution was to rely on the preferences of Edward at Wine Sapien. Edward is WA-based and – as his wine selections indicate – he has a selective and refined palate. He likes the Great Mellie a contemporary French restaurant at 37 High Street, Fremantle and so did we. It is BYO so, equipping ourselves with some good chardonnay and pinot, we set off on a 6-course adventure of cuttlefish, mushroom soup, red snapper, lamb, quail along with a fine array of deserts.
A top, small, modern French restaurant – good service and great food. And the find a tribute to the gastronomic virtue of participating in the blogosphere.
