An $8 million mini dining precinct is set to open this month at Avani Broadbeach.

The development is headed by the Good Time Group, with the precinct to comprise three distinct venues across almost 2000 square metres on the hotel’s ground level.

Noosa-born restaurant Miss Moneypenny’s will take over 750 square metres of the space, with indoor and outdoor seating for 200 diners.

Alongside this will be a new dining concept by the group, dubbed Fat Freddy’s Beach Bar & Diner, which will serve up American-style drinks and eats.

A high-end dining and function space The Rimini Room will complete the precinct, offering space for up to 120 guests with its own private entry from the carpark below.

Good Time Group CEO Ben Walsh has appointed chef Braden White to lead the kitchen team.

“Braden has spent the last two years overseas and people have been eagerly awaiting his return,” he said. “The fact that he has teamed up with us is amazing,”

White said he was thrilled to be taking part in the new project.

“I’m particularly excited that this project is on the Gold Coast which is a special place for me and my family,” he said. “When Ben approached me about the project, l knew straight away that it was going to be an awesome opportunity and one that l just couldn’t turn down.”
