It missed its planned December debut, but Bondi's new Fish Shop is up and grilling in its location near the Beach Road Hotel.
A spin-off venture from the team behind Japanese-inspired salad pioneer Fishbowl, they chose the same beachside suburb where Fishbowl began its journey.
The brief was to create a "fine-casual" dining experience, with a "bliss point" between restaurant and bar, and a good old-fashioned fish shop.
Head chef Joel Bennetts (Pier, Bistrode CBD) is getting some promising early notices, touting sustainable and difficult-to-access seafood on a menu inspired by the Mediterranean and coastal Middle East. Yum.
Open daily noon-10pm.
