Gramercy Bar And Kitchen, 10 / 777 Central Park, Hay Street, Perth, Phone 9481 1020.
Squash every week into a Day … If I had the ability, that is exactly what I would do. Gramercy has been on my list for two years. Yes, two years. Thankfully, I was able to cross this item off my list today.
Was very pleased to be inside the building for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the view, as the café is open on one side with views over Central Park. I kid you not, Perth has its own tiny Central Park on Hay Street full of greenery and benches. And, the white collar horde arrive in droves to sit in the sunshine and eat lunch.
Secondly, Thursday’s lunch special inside Gramercy is Fish and Chips, a lucky break for this fan of Ye Olde English delicacy. Let me tell you that at $15.00 the lunch special is very good value.
Also ordered a glass of San Martino Prosecco because it is quickly becoming a favourite. A little drier than most but there are some lush stone fruit flavours. Yum.
So, my food arrives and it looks fab with the fish and chips dotted with salt crystals and what looks like fried capers. I looked it up and it’s a technique which apparently moves the flavour up a notch. Not had them before and they were impressive. Loved the super crunchy, chilli dusted chips. And, the small bowl of pickled vegetables was a nice touch.
According to Wikipedia:
Gramercy means “many thanks”. It is derived from the French term “grand merci”, meaning “big thanks”.
