Exclusive: Fallon brothers appoint new management team to Mosman landmark hotel The Buena.
By ANNA USHER.
A new and improved Bistro Moncur is on the cards for Mosman, with The Buena appointing Tilley & Wills Hotels as its new management dream team.
Owners Tim, Luke and Matthew Fallon are thrilled with the new partnership, which will see an exciting new era in local hospitality launched in the coming months.
Speaking exclusively to Mosman Collective, Tim revealed that Bistro Moncur head chef, Jon Trouillet, will remain in Mosman and make “slight tweaks” to the menu, without removing any of his signature dishes.
“We are thrilled that Jon will remain a loyal member of The Buena’s family,” Tim said.
“He is a brilliant chef, with more than 15 years-experience in Michelin star restaurants – and the locals love him as much as they love the pub.
“We have absolutely no intention of denying Mosman their favourite dishes of Steak Frites and Souffle”.
He confirmed Bistro Moncur will be renamed before the end of the year, with the Tilly & Wills group focussed on delivering the “best customer experience” in Sydney.
“Our patrons are the most important part of our business, and as passionate locals who have lived in Mosman for generations, the entire Fallon family is incredibly excited about what lies ahead,” he said.
It’s a sentiment echoed by Tilly & Wills CEO, Nick Wills.
“We’re thrilled to be working with The Buena, which is a favourite destination for people from all over Sydney,” he said.
“The Fallon brothers have a real gem on their hands, and we look forward to working with them, on helping the venue reach its full potential.”
Tilley & Wills own North Sydney's Greenwood Hotel and recently purchased Verandah Bar in Martin Place, revamping its restaurant with Executive chef Brad Sloane at the helm.
Tim said existing floor and bar staff will remain at The Buena, opening hours stay the same, and there will be no change to menus – for now.
“We have a few things planned to make the pub even better, but The Buena is part of our community and it’s been part of the fabric of Mosman for over a century,” he said.
“It's always been a family friendly destination – and that won’t change.
“In fact, it will only get even better!”
