LEONIA, N.J. — The eatery at the Leonia Swim Club recently underwent a transformation, thanks to an Australian chef and his wife.
Ron Wolf has many years of bar and restaurant experience, from Sydney, Australia to New York City.
He and his wife Amy moved to the borough three years ago and were recently presented with the opportunity to take over the snack bar at the Leonia pool.
"It's a fun way to give back to the community," Amy told Daily Voice. "We’re employing teens from the high school, and it’s a very positive happy feel."
Aside from renovations to the facility, Ron has completely revamped the menu. We're talking grilled corn on the cob, fish 'n chips, fresh lemonade and more.
"There is an emphasis on healthy foods," Amy said. "A shelf of really fun snacks and no garbage. No syrup. Parents can't bring their kids to the counter and wont get in a fight."
The Wolfs will also be catering pool events and making dishes such as sesame tuna and lobster rolls.
"You can come with the family stay until nine at night, have a great fun meal without having to go too far," Amy said.
