The Canberra Times today reports that the Queanbeyan Council’s new General Manager, Gary Chapman, is hoping to bring alfresco dining to the town.
“Council is wanting to embark on upon restaurant culture alfresco-style dining – and there has been a lot of interest with people wanting to redevelop the CBD” he said.
Queanbeyan is better known for the Central Cafe’s ‘a meal’s not a meal unless you can’t eat all of it’ type dining experience than anything more cultured. Even the local Italian restaurant has to add notes to its menu to explain regular Italian dishes.
Besides, doesn’t McDonalds already have an outdoor eating area.
