This month our magazine focuses on the stylish new restaurants that are shaping our towns and cities.
With fine-dining eateries providing a welcoming place for people to recharge and relax after a hard day’s work, the restaurant industry is rapidly becoming a key ingredient for our future success. This month we look at how Jamie’s Italian, Hawksmoor, YO! Sushi, Carluccio’s and Giraffe continue this success through the opening of their latest sites.
Located on Finchley Road, Camden the 60th YO! Sushi restaurant has opened its doors. The £550,000 two-storey building comprises a 67-cover restaurant and brings additional Tokyo-style dining to the UK. YO! Sushi Camden is a unique site that reflects the ever-evolving design aesthetic that has become synonymous with the brand, whilst the layout complements the location perfectly.
Hawksmoor is a lavish steakhouse and cocktail bar that continues to impress diners with its distinctly British flavour. The chain currently has three restaurants in the UK, with its latest – Guildhall – offering diners a unique eating experience. Hawksmoor Guildhall takes references from many iconic and nostalgic buildings of the past, which is reflected throughout the site’s lavish layout.
Italian restaurant chain Carluccio’s has opened a brand new restaurant in Liverpool. The one-storey development has retained the building’s original stone cladding whilst a new frontage leads out into the pedestrian area of the city’s vibrant Metquarter.
Other exciting projects include the state-of-the-art Centrepoint hostel on Dundas Street in Sunderland. The £1.3 million hostel was launched by X-Factor star Joe McElderry and will provide much-needed support for vulnerable young people in the North East.
In Great Yarmouth, the popular Caister Holiday Park is celebrating a modern new ShowBar. Boasting a sleek and colourful design, the steel-frame ShowBar boasts a range of exciting features such as a live lounge with stage bars and seating for up to 750 people. In the height of summer, the ShowBar will boast a variety of world-class acts including Eastenders’ Shane Ritchie, Stavros Flatley and Ray Lewis.
One truly inspirational project is the Deaf Village Project, which will transform the lives of deaf and hard-of-hearing people in Ireland. Once it is completed in July 2012, the project will bring considerable benefits to the deaf community through access to new sports, recreational and community amenities.
