Sushi is coming to Thirroul!
It’s all part of the changes that will be made to Thirroul’s Bergies now new owners Gaenor Lloyd and husband Graham Ette are at the helm.
The pair has been running Etiquette Catering for the past 5 years and Graham is a director of The Roosevelt, a Potts Point cocktail bar. Parents of two young children (five year old Leo and baby Emilie) they’ve been handed the keys and are keen to build on the work done by former owners Mark and Julia Berg, who turned the dilapidated building into a thriving business.
“During Summer we are committed to providing delicious fish and chips,” says Gaenor, “so for the first few months it will be business as usual for ‘Bergies’.”
Then after the April school holidays Bergies, on Lawrence Hargrave Drive, will shut its doors and re-open as ‘South Sailor’.
“The site has been a fish and chip shop on and off since 1946 so we plan to keep fish and chips at the heart of our business,” says Gaenor.
“We also have exciting plans that include an outdoor children’s area, renovations, and a new menu!”
“We plan to offer the classic fish and chip shop fare, but with more worldly seafood flavours. We’ll have house-smoked fish, a sushi bar, and oysters from the South Coast. We want to offer some healthy options, and still make seafood accessible for local families.
“We moved into the area from Sydney in 2014 and since then have been looking for the perfect place to establish our business,” says Gaenor. “We are so lucky to have found Bergies and we can’t wait to get up and running.”
