Harrisons finds Grande home
Spencer Patrick has confirmed he is moving his award winning eatery, Harrisons, to the Sheraton Grande Mirage.
Harrisons will occupy the space formerly held by Il Pescatore and fit out will start in the coming weeks, Mr Patrick said.
The move has been in the works for some time with whispers following the rebranding of Patrick’s Wharf Street venue to Bistro H.
“Last October our move to the Sheraton had become a solid reality and we needed to give the Wharf Street location (ex Harrisons) a different identity,” he said.
At the Sheraton Grande Mirage the new incarnation will be known as Harrisons by Spencer Patrick. The menu will be European but heavily influenced by local produce.
The overall theme of the fit out is British Colonial which will take advantage of the grand ceilings and features of the space.
Mr Patrick explains that there will be a lot of greenery used inside to soften the space.
Guests can expect a feature bar and lounge area towards the restaurant entrance and a private dining area come meeting space across the rest of the upper inside level.
Around 50 air-conditioned seats will occupy the lower interior level of the restaurant. The venue’s outdoor balcony seating for 50 will then likely prove popular year round with views across the resort’s iconic and expansive lagoon pools.
Doors are set to open late May 2017.
To make the move possible Patrick has accepted that he will have to relinquish his third venue, Bucci.
The main street Italian diner is now on the market for a quick sale. “Being one of town’s busiest restaurants in and out of season, Bucci is perfect for owner operators looking to make an easy first move into being their own boss,” Mr patrick said.
“It’s for sale now on a walk in-walk out basis and with season just around the corner, the timing couldn’t be better for prospective buyers.”
