Acclaimed chef Braden White to head Broadbeach’s new $8-million dining precinct
A new multi-venue ‘mini precinct’ is set to take Broadbeach’s restaurant and bar scene to a new level – and it’s just weeks away. The firm behind the new $8-million development, The Good Time Group, has this week announced it will officially unveil the first of three venues within the dining hub before the end of August.
The group’s CEO Ben Walsh has also revealed that acclaimed chef Braden White, formerly of Brisbane’s Stokehouse Q, The Apo and Noosa’s Ricky’s River Bar and Restaurant, will oversee the multi-venue precinct, which sits beneath the luxury Avani tower on the Gold Coast Highway. The 1,900-sqm site will include Noosa-born favourite Miss Moneypenny’s (spanning more than 750 sqm), as well as the 165-seat American-style Fat Freddy’s Beach Bar & Diner concept, and a high-end private-dining space named The Rimini Room. Hailing from Toowoomba, Braden has featured as a guest chef on MasterChef in the past and most recently returned from Bali where he oversaw a raft venues for hospitality group 8 Degree Projects including Sisterfields, BO$$ MAN, Sibling, and fine diner Bikini.
Fat Freddy’s Beach Bar & Diner will be the first venue unveiled, with the doors expected to open in August. It will be followed closely by Miss Moneypenny’s and The Rimini Room. Sydney-based hospitality design company, Paul Kelly Design, is behind the creation of the three separate and distinctly different offerings, which will cut a striking figure beneath the Avani tower. Keep your eyes peeled – we’ll have more details for you in the coming weeks!
