New dining venue encourages shared experiences
An all-day dining restaurant with a twist has opened in Bunbury this week.
Capturing the essence of fresh food and mixed cuisine is Bunbury man Nathan Young who has ventured into the hospitality world, opening Platform One Five next to the Clifton Motel in what was formerly Louisa’s Restaurant.
Mr Young said the building had been vacant for seven years, but because of its location it had great potential for a restaurant.
“I found out about the venue in August last year and thought it would be a great opportunity,” he said.
“We have taken on an urban feel, offering not just mainstream food but also share-style dining with fresh, local produce.
“We haven’t gone with one cuisine, instead are highlighting different styles of food, like share-style Mexican platters and a breakfast tower for a different experience.”
He is also featuring boutique beers, ciders and a collection of local and national wines.
Mr Young has taken on three hospitality traineeships, adding to 12 new staff, including head chef Michael Wilson who has worked nationally.
He said it was important to support Bunbury’s youth.
An alfresco dining application has been submitted to the Bunbury City Council for a coffee station on the boardwalk for coffee connoisseurs, as well as restaurant service on the terrace.
The venue also has boardrooms for hire and a function room which is being renovated.
The restaurant is open from 6am to 9pm weekdays and 7am to 9pm on the weekends.
