Restaurant rises again

The Burnett Street Merchant
THE most talked-about eatery in New Norfolk has re-opened after a long break between courses.

Originally a general store and later a second-hand shop and furniture store, the building at 21 Burnett St was a fire-damaged shell before being opened as Verandahs in the Valley in 2003.

Verandahs had two iterations, followed by a short period in 2010 when it traded as "Quince" under different management.

The original operators, John and Laurelle Grimley, have now opened a new venture in the building, calling it The Burnett Street Merchant. The name is a nod to a popular eatery in Perth, Western Australia.

The restaurant's Facebook page says "The Merchant" will be open from 5pm on Thursday and Friday, and from 6pm on Saturday. For bookings, call or text 0400 677 445. There is also a website with other details.
