And we're back
Four Day Week is here
So summer is just about gone - and the only good thing about that is that figs are back in season - and we do love our figs at Bottega.
We're back in the straps with a new menu and new specials to entice you through the doors - or onto the phone if takeaway is more your thing.
Figs are everywhere and we've roasted them, dried them, pureed them, macerated them and cooked them to create pizza, pasta, burrata, bresaola, pannacotta, tarts and more.
The other major food group that's in season is mushrooms. They're a food group on their own, right?
So now we have porcini, portobello, cremini, oyster, champignon and more in the kitchen turning into beautiful roast mushroom bruschettas, creamy risottos (perfect for a cooler evening), to-die-for pizza and deliciously simple pastas.
Check out our current specials to feast your eyes and set your tummy rumbling below and we'll see you soon.
An don't forget! We're open Thursday to Sunday from now on.
It's never easy to adjust a business to meet the times. When we added an extra day to our service it was a risk as we staffed up and prepared for more prep work, but Bundanoon embraced it and we had staff and resources to manage.
The times have changed again - in some cases, quite dramatically, and we are looking to adjust once more.
Our business is for sale through MMJ Brokers in Wollongong and it is for sale because of health issues. To manage those health issues we are reducing our trading days, opening Thursday to Sunday each week from February 2024.
We are sure there will be some adverse feedback on this decision, but Wednesday is no longer a good idea for this business at this time.
Staff are increasingly difficult to find in this low-unemployment period so rather than risk our service standards or burn ourselves out, we are taking a measured decision to reduce our trade by one day.
This is not forever.
We are likely to add Wednesdays during holiday periods when demand is high and the town is full of visitors.
Meanwhile, we'll be here Thursday to Sunday each week as usual.
