Benalla Ensign - - Front Page -

When an op­por­tu­nity arose for Christie Phillip­son to ex­pand her cater­ing busi­ness, Fab­u­lous Fod­der, she and her part­ner Johnny Grim­ley saw it as a fan­tas­tic way to in­cor­po­rate, cater­ing, pri­vate func­tions, a cafe and en­ter­tain­ment.

And so Some­where Fod­der was formed.

The cafe at 3 Bridge St opened three months ago and over that time has been ex­per­i­ment­ing with mainly sim­ple fresh, fast food and light meals, and de­ter­min­ing where the de­mand is.

With a new chef on board they now plan to ex­pand the menu to cater for din­ners with ev­ery­thing from bar snacks to fresh seafood plat­ters, sushi, taster plates, some tra­di­tional dishes (with a mod­ern twist) and other fresh healthy meals.

‘‘Some­where is con­tin­u­ally evolv­ing and we hope to cre­ate a great ca­sual at­mos­phere for eat­ing, drink­ing and be­ing en­ter­tained,’’ Ms Phillip­son said.

The venue has been ex­ten­sively ren­o­vated and has a bar and large space out


Fab­u­lous the back that is avail­able for pri­vate func­tions, ca­sual din­ing and en­ter­tain­ment such as co­me­di­ans, live theatre, bands and acous­tic artists.

They are al­ways seek­ing new en­ter­tain­ers, and lo­cal art­works are also on dis­play and for sale.

Some­where can seat about 60 peo­ple and will open for din­ner on Thurs­day, Fri­day and Satur­day nights from Fe­bru- ary 12 with a happy hour from 5 pm to 6 pm.

Some­where is open on Wed­nes­days from 9.30 am to 4 pm, and Thurs­day to Satur­day from 9.30 am un­til late, with take home meals avail­able.

They are also avail­able for cater­ing out­side of these hours and are now tak­ing book­ings for Valen­tine’s Day on 0412 839 145.
