A popular Sydney restaurant, known for its mixed plates of various meats accompanied by Hummus, Baba Ganoush, Garlic Dip and Falafel is heading to Mosman, just in time for the warmer weather and summer crowds.
Fattoush, a Middle Eastern family eatery based in North Willoughby since 2017, will open its second location at Warringah Bowls Club at the end of October, injecting much needed new flavours to a previously basic – and boring – bistro menu.
Fattoush has made a name for itself in North Willoughby, where it’s been well known for several years.
Speaking exclusively with Mosman Collective, owner Rabih Fayah said he’s been on the lookout for a lower north shore restaurant site for the past two years.
“It’s a golden opportunity for Fattoush and we are looking forward to joining the Mosman community and delivering quality Lebanese dishes full of fresh produce and flavour,” he said.
“We are kitting out the kitchen at Warringah Bowls Club and it’s looking like we could be open around October 20.
“Locals can expect char-grilled share dishes that are 100% authentic and family friendly in a great location,” Mr Fayah said.
Owner Rabih Fayah says the new Warringah Bowls Club restaurant “Fattoush” will feature a charcoal grill.
Best enjoyed as a group, Lebanese cuisine is perfect for large gatherings who like a table laden with plates of shared dips, breads, grains, salads, and meats.
Mr Fayah said the Warringah Bowls function room will be used as his new restaurant, with the existing bar area and outdoor tables also available for hungry diners.
When asked if Fattoush Mosman would feature Belly Dancers on weekends, Mr Fayeh said it was something Warringah Bowls Club board members were considering.
“Along with Lebanese cuisine we also hope to provide more traditional burgers, schnitzels and chips,” he said.
“But nothing has been finalised yet.”
