Adam and Kasey have a lot of experience, as well as a shared passion for food and service, so they were excited when, in December 2018, they opened their modern Australian cuisine restaurant Johnny Franco’s in Murwillumbah.
After living and working in cafés and restaurants in the Tweed for over a decade, it was great to take the next step on the journey and bring fresh, new and tasty ingredients to Murwillumbah for their own restaurant.
The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner. The lunch menu includes salads, pasta and burgers – including the ever-popular Bison burger. Fully licensed indoor lounge and dining areas create casual, elegant all-day dining that is affordable and delicious.
There is also an all-day pizza and tapas menu to take you into 5pm happy-hour. The evening dinner menu features seafood, slow cooked lamb and American style beef ribs. Look out for the weekly specials, and the in-house baked cakes and sweets to complement the meals.
They have a commitment to shopping local, and providing the freshest food, so shopping at the local farmers market and sourcing local ingredients is high priority for Adam. With seating for up to 80 people, group bookings are welcome; they have already started taking bookings for staff Christmas parties, with a sit down set-menu, or cocktail style functions.
Hosting quarterly charity events has proven a hit, and the next evening is locked in for 10 October in aid of the Story Dogs organisation. Contact Kasey to reserve your table.
