North Bondi Fish opens December 17
Bondi locals will have another reason to stay beachside when North Bondi Fish, the highly anticipated, casual restaurant and bar by Matt Moran and Peter Sullivan, opens on December 17.
Located a few short steps from the sand and surf in the old North Bondi Italian site, North Bondi Fish is Bondi at its best. The restaurant is a relaxed space, which personifies beachside chic and is the perfect spot for lunch, dinner and everything in between. The kitchen opens at midday and the full menu is available all day and late into the evening.
A nod to the waterfront location, North Bondi Fish interiors are playful and welcoming and take inspiration from the Mediterranean seaside, suiting the relaxed vibe perfectly. Think a mixture of communal, casual wooden benches and tables, light shades with pops of colour throughout the inside spilling onto the outdoor deck.
The North Bondi Fish menu features fresh, simple, seafood dishes using the best quality produce. The focus is on casual dining with light, fresh food. The menu offers a selection of small bites, summer salads and simple grilled fish dishes charcoal-grilled on the kitchen’s Inka Grill. Some of Matt’s favourites include yellowfin tuna ceviche; sweet potato scallops; prawn roll; grilled snapper with asparagus, pea shoots and avocado; and his own take on fish fingers. Of course, it wouldn’t be Bondi without a choice of several indulgent ice cream sundaes for a soothing end to a day in the surf.
The unique wine list, designed by Matt Dunne, features crisp aromatic whites and lighter reds, a mix of Australian and European wines with Champagne and prosecco among the 20 different wines served by the glass or carafe.
Lovers of a good G&T will be pleased to see their tipple is offered a variety of ways; Hendricks with fresh cucumber; Tanqueray Ten with fresh pink grapefruit; or Bombay Sapphire with fresh lime and orange. There are also a couple of North Bondi Fish specials such as a North Bondi Crush (Fresh watermelon and Campari served in a jar) and N-B-C (North Bondi Colada: Havana Club, passionfruit pulp, coconut syrup, fresh lime and pineapple juice) as well as the ultimate summer beachside drink, an Aperol Spritz (Aperol, soda, prosecco and fresh orange).
Well acquainted with the eastern suburbs, Matt Moran and Peter Sullivan began their restaurateur partnership 21 years ago at Paddington Inn Bistro and now own ARIA in Sydney and Brisbane and most recently opened CHISWICK in Woollahra in 2012.
Matt Moran says the duo is thrilled to be opening North Bondi Fish in this fantastic beachside location.
“North Bondi Fish is for the locals. It’s relaxed, it’s fun and it’s no fuss. It is the kind of place you head to for something good to eat anytime of the day, even while still in your thongs and boardies,” says Moran.
