Ethos Dining Room is a bespoke dining space full of atmosphere and the comfort of home.
Their menu is inspired by modern eastern European cuisine, with chef Meliss Palinkas paying homage to her Hungarian and German heritage. Their focus is on seasonal Western Australian produce with low food miles, following their philosophy around sustainability and zero waste.
The wine list is curated by co-owner Susan Whelan, with an emphasis on minimal intervention, natural, organic and sustainable viniculture practices and showcases the wonderful wines of Western Australia.
With a strong connection to the eastern European deli, Ethos follows a similar formula with its modern take on an old school New York deli, selling some NY deli favourites, as well as eastern European cakes and breads. Their nose-to-tail approach, sees them use every morsel of every animal across the deli and dining room. Their packaged small goods all come in bio degradable compostable material made from rice, potato and corn derivatives.
The WA Good Food Guide is a celebration of all that is excellent in the Western Australian dining scene across all areas of cooking, entrepreneurship, wine, beer and service and this is what they have to say about Ethos Deli + Dining Room, part of The Top 100 list – “A friendly suburban bistro that punches well above its weight, in flavour and in ethics.”
