THE Fraser Coast's most lovable cooks will team up with one of our favourite fine dining restaurants to create a new dining experience.

My Kitchen Rules winners Dan and Steph Mulheron are opening up a restaurant alongside a new gourmet burger bar founded by Coast manager Julia Paussa.

Ms Paussa said the partnership with Dan and Steph would bring a new experience to diners.

"We were just looking for something new to do for Hervey Bay and obviously we've seen a lot of success with Coast," she said.

"I've known Dan and Steph since I was a child."

The two eateries will be run next to each other but offer different menus.

Ms Paussa expects the publicity surrounding Dan and Steph's triumphant stint on MKR to generate customers.

"We forged a friendship through what they were doing on the show.

"It's been really great for them to be able to stay in Hervey bay and have an opportunity to do what they're passionate about which is cooking for people."

The gourmet burger bar will be a takeaway and dine-in restaurant and Ms Paussa said there would be continual changes to the menu in the first year.

She also plans to support locals by using as much local and fresh produce as possible.

The two restaurants are expected to open in about four weeks, with an expected grand opening for both.
