Fernwehvorfreude, Teil 51: Clonny’s erkunden

Noch etwas Neues steht auf meiner To Do-Liste: Clonny’s im Clontarf Reserve, ein sehr einladend wirkendes, lässiges Lokal, derzeit nur als Kiosk offen, und mit folgender Beschreibung in der Zeitung. Hier geht’s zum ganzen Artikel…

Clonny’s is back at Clontarf Reserve and under new management. Chef Jo Bright, of Seaforth, screamed “so hard everyone thought I’d gone in to labour” when she found out Manly Council had awarded the contract to run the place to her and colleagues Steve Lee and Balgowlah’s Chris Dearberg.

After running the catering at Long Reef Golf Club previously, the trio were excited to make the Clontarf venue their own. “I’ve known this venue since I don’t even remember when, so to be in here is amazing,” Miss Dearberg said. Within a month it was out with the old carpet and in with a new vibe, reopening last week after the renovation blitz as a “beach hut for the summer”. Miss Dearberg said the trio plan to reopen as a licenced restaurant in six months time, but for now patrons can pick up their food from the kiosk window and are welcome to sit in the park or in the bright dining room.

“We wanted to get in and running as fast as we could, so we’re going for something really summery and beachy and casual,” Miss Dearberg said. “We didn’t want to do anything too formal … people just wanted to be able to throw their thongs on and come up to from the beach.” Burgers, salads, fish and chips and ice creams are on the menu and Clonny’s opens from 10am until 8pm on weekdays and from 8am until 8pm on weekends.
