Tilley & Wills unveil new approach for The Buena
The Buena’s Bistro Moncur Mosman supplements new name with new menu approach.
Last September we revealed The Buena had appointed Tilley & Wills Hotels as its new management body and revealed it planned to rename Bistro Moncur. This after Public House Management Group recently exited the Sydney venue.
Today Tilley & Wills confirmed the new name change for Bistro Mosman and also revealed its plans for a more approachable, more affordable menu for Bistro Mosman within The Buena.
“We pride ourselves on offering a place where Mosman locals and visitors alike can feel at home,” The Buena’s General Manager Lloyd McKerrell told Australian Hotelier. “We are constantly looking at ways to introduce Mosman to new and interesting dishes, and don’t believe in resting on our laurels. Over the past few months we have reviewed all our menu items and price-points. We feel that we have successfully captured the heart of French cuisine at a price that doesn’t break the bank.”
Head chef Jon Trouillet (ex-Jules Vernes in the Eiffel Tower) remains from Public House Management Group era and has created a new seasonal menu that aims to deliver better value to diners.
“I’ve been a part of this venue since it first launched and I’m extremely excited for the next chapter,” says Jon. “I’ve played with French flavours and Australian ingredients to create a menu that I believe offers something different and exciting for Mosman locals.”
The new menu continues the bistro’s traditional French cuisine using fresh Australian produce and also continues with existing restaurant manager and Frenchman Tim Lepoutre. Lepoutre will continue to lead the front of house team.
Owned by the three Fallon brothers, The Buena, located in the heart of Mosman, underwent a major refurbishment in 2016. The pub is split into three separate sections: downstairs is home to the Buena Bar, a central island bar surrounded by dark timber and suede booths, and Bistro Mosman. Upstairs is the Vista Bar, a light-filled space with exposed beams, ferns and a lounge
area serving up great pub classics and cocktails.
