Willoughby residents have been consumed with curiosity about what will go in on the corner of High Street and Alexander Avenue after the departure of Via Alta. Well, the wait is over, with the announcement that a new French bistro will open in the coming weeks!

We can reveal that after eight glorious years of culinary excellence and unforgettable moments at the well-known Le Bouchon Crows Nest, chefs Marc and David are embarking on a new gastronomic adventure in North Willoughby.

Their newest venture will open its doors in the coming weeks after an internal refurbishment is completed. Expect new furniture, lighting and a wine display; all in a French bistro style.

The Iceworks have used the opportunity to do their own rebranding, with a new logo design planned for the front façade of the building – encouraging locals to “Shop, Dine and Connect Locally”.

Le Bouchon was extremely popular with North Shore locals, who lamented its closure a few years ago. For Marc and David it was a labour of love – a place where they poured their hearts into every dish and savoured every satisfied smile from their cherished guests.

According to Marc, “We couldn’t resist the call of a new beginning, and destiny which led us to wonderful North Willoughby.”

They look forward to reconnecting with loyal patrons and welcoming new ones – sharing special celebrations or simply the joy of indulging in delicious food and great company as they continue their culinary journey together.

Whether you are a connoisseur of French flavours or a curious food lover seeking new experiences, Marc and David promise an extraordinary culinary adventure that will tantalize your senses and leave you longing for more.

So watch the Willoughby Living website and socials for more information in the coming weeks and in the meantime why not visit one of the other restaurant offerings at The Iceworks including Gochiso, Braci, Dose and Zeus Street Greek.
