Opening Soon – Tommy’s Italian
It’s a sad day when any long-standing venue closes its doors, especially one that is as widely adored as The Beach Shack in Currumbin. This story, however, is not one of doors closing, but of exciting new chapters and new beginnings. The much-loved 1920s eatery will be given a new lease on life as Tommy’s Italian – a modern coastal Italian trattoria. Tommy’s Italian will be a collaboration between hospitality heavyweights Ronnie Tarabay, the former owner of The Fish House, and Tom Torchut of Brisbane and the Gold Coast’s dining institutions Arc Dining, Gemelli Italian and Hellenika. The 120-seat trattoria will offer a sharp but casual service, coupled with a sense of familiarity and warmth in its fit-out. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, Tommy’s Italian will also feature a dedicated takeaway servery window and a mezzanine to sit and soak in the cerulean waters of Currumbin.
Tommy’s Italian is set to open in late August. As always, we’ll have all of the tasty tidbits as they come to hand but you can also follow the journey on Tommy’s Italian Instagram.
