ASIAN FREO FISHING BOAT HARBOUR

Posted in city of fremantle, food, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on May 17, 2017

The Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour will get more diversity with Asian restaurant Han’s opening ist 13th franchise outlet there.

Han’s signed a ten-year lease for the 240sqm space that once occupied the Mussel Bar.

Let’s hope number 13 is a lucky number for them and for Fremantle.

FISHING BOAT HARBOUR PIAZZA

PIazza

 

The new Piazza in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour is looking good and not too far away from completion.

I hope that shade structures are part of the plans because there is a lot of concrete that will heat up during the summer months.

BARQUEING MAD

Posted in food, fremantle, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on April 19, 2017

Barque

 

The lovely BARQUE restaurant in George Street, East Fremantle has closed its doors just days after receiving a very good review from feared West Australian food critic Rob Broadfield.

I had a very memorable birthday there years ago, of which I remember very little, but the food was great and the wine too plentiful. ; >(

I hear a famous WA chef will return from the Eastern States and start the Cook&Mason restaurant there.

FOOD MAKES MONDAYS GREAT AGAIN

The Under The Bridge Foodtrucks organisers came up with the Trumpish slogan Make Mondays Great Again, so I am stealing it from them.

It’s on again today from 5-8.30 pm at the Fremantle East Street Jetty and a lot of fun. It’s also a great spot to watch the sun set behind the port, fall in love, network, meet new friends, take the dog for a walk, or have a quick swim in the Swan River.

ANYONE WILL DO FOR FREO’S ART PRECINCT

Posted in art, arthur head, city of fremantle, food, j shed by freoview on January 27, 2017

While the official statement I received from the City of Fremantle is that they are looking for alternative options for the short-term lease of the No 1 studio at J Shed, the Fremantle Herald reports that Freo Food will be moving in for five months because O6M will not take up the lease.

Let me first state that I believe that Freo Food is a very good idea. Linking local producers with local customers and supplying packaged-free produce is great. Also good to try to keep it cheap by cutting overheads, so I am all for it.

But the Bathers Beach Art Precinct is the most inappropriate location for a fruit and vegetable shop and it is ridiculous for City staff to tell J Shed artists that the BBAP concept does have allowance for a hospitality operator. Freo Food is not a hospitality operator and it is not an arts related business, so it should not be given the lease to the art studio within the arts precinct. For CoF staff to even consider it is ridiculous!

The anyone will do attitude by the City of Fremantle for the Bathers Beach Art Precinct has resulted in many failed attempts and the committee has not done a very good job in attracting high-quality art businesses to Arthur Head.
