You may recall our article two weeks ago about the Coast Restaurant at the Ocean Shores Country Club, managed since October last year by chef Carl Barnes and his partner Rachel Besett.
Anyone familiar with The Restaurant Inspector and Fernando Peire will have heard of The Ivy, a celebrity restaurant in London, where Carl worked for a time during his international career.
Now new horizons are about to open up for the couple, as at the front of the clubhouse in Ocean Shores construction has commenced on a large covered deck. From the deck diners will enjoy one of the most panoramic ocean views in the region. It’ll be a prime whale-watching spot.
Migaloo, one of the biggest celebrities in the region (well, certainly the biggest whale celebrity), should be visible from the deck, which is expected to be unveiled by end of March (weather permitting) in time for Easter.
