A new mood at the Shorehouse
AN exciting new restaurant has taken up residence on The Strand combining a winning combination of tasty food with Townsville’s best view.
Shorehouse, located near Jezzine Barracks, officially open its doors today after an 18- month fitout.
The restaurant seats about 140 people and will serve lunch and dinner.
Despite minimal advertis- ing the restaurant has been creating a buzz on social media and has already received bookings.
Shorehouse manager Ken Irwin said the restaurant would offer a unique dining experience.
“It’s going to be something quite different for Townsville,” he said. “It’s going to be very dark and moody rather than bright and cold because we wanted to offer something different to what is already here.
“We have a mix of seating options like booth seating because we wanted to make sure the seating was comfortable to entice people to stay, eat and drink. We’re really excited to let Townsville see what we’ve been doing.”
The restaurant won’t offer a traditional entree, main and desert. Instead plates are designed to be shared and are placed in the middle of the table.
Mr Irwin said the menu fea- tured a variety of seafood, meat dishes and vegetarian options.
“To have some of the best seafood in Australia on the doorstep is wonderful but the menu is quite balanced between all the different proteins,” Mr Irwin said.
“The menu is a grazing style menu instead of a three- course menu and each meal comes out when it’s ready.”
