Chris Badenoch And Julia Jenkins Restaurant Closes
The bad news for Chris Bandenoch and Julia Jenkin fans is their restaurant and beerhouse, Josie Bones is closing.
It has been a tough tweleve months as they have a $125,ooo tax debt, but the good news is they are going to open up a microbrewery in the Inner North Melbourne.
Chris talks to Good Food:
“It’s no secret that it’s been a tough 12 months for us,” says Badenoch, adding that the pair will be “sad to close the doors here but we’re really excited at the same time; it’s enabled us to evolve the brewing side of things”. With a range of specialty beers, a big outdoor beer garden and a couple of American-style offset smoker BBQs, the casual space in an inner-north warehouse – the exact location is yet to be divulged – will focus on “a simple food and beer offering, with lots of events”. The pair is hopeful for an April opening.
