Gino D’Acampo, the UK’s favourite Italian chef, has announced that he plans to open a fourth Gino D’Acampo My Restaurant in Harrogate, this June. The new restaurant which comes complete with an all-year roof terrace, will open just in time for summer, serving lunch until late seven days a week.
Located on Parliament Street, right opposite Jamie’s Italian, the new restaurant opening follows the hugely successful launch of his restaurant brand in Leeds, just before Christmas.
Gino first made his move into the eating out market with the launch of Gino D’Acampo My Pasta Bar in central London and then moved into restaurants when he teamed up with friend & business partner Steven Walker, founder of Individual Restaurants.
The opening in Harrogate follows the hugely successful launch of his restaurant brand Gino D’Acampo My restaurant in Leeds, Manchester and London’s Euston station. Gino plans to open more pasta bars & restaurants in major cities and travel hubs, both in the UK and internationally.
The 150-cover restaurant is over two floors and includes an open kitchen, deli bar, Prosecco Bar and a stunning all-weather roof terrace, with an additional cocktail bar that is sure to be a big hit with summer sun seekers.
The design has a true Italian feel, with the use of white marble, washed woods and Riva green leather, reflecting Gino’s passion for his homeland of Naples in Southern Italy.
Gino promises to serve real Italian food as it should be. The day to evening menu is packed full of favourites from his books and TV programmes. No compromises are taken on any recipes and Gino insists on the use of well sourced, seasonal, artisan ingredients by utilising his vast range of contacts across the diverse regions of Italy.
It’s not just the food Gino is keen to make a statement with. His Prosecco Bar showcases an all Italian list of more than 40 Prosecco’s, sparkling wines and regional wines all available by the glass. The wine list is complemented by classic Italian cocktails including; seasonal Bellini’s, artisan Italian Beers and last but not least great Neapolitan coffee.
