Food and beverage operator SSP has opened a new restaurant in Euston Station with TV chef Gino D’Acampo and Individual Restaurants.
Called ‘Gino D’Acampo – My Restaurant’, the venue serves a wide selection of dishes throughout the day. Its opening follows the launch, two months ago, of a restaurant in the Corn Exchange, Manchester.
The 150-cover restaurant includes a cocktail bar, an eat-at kitchen bar and a dining area that extends onto the station’s mezzanine terrace, overlooking the main concourse. More than 71 million travellers pass through the station every year.
The design has a true Mediterranean feel – its use of white marble, washed woods and trademark green leather reflecting D’Acampo passion for his homeland of southern Italy.
His mission, underpinning the new restaurant, is to serve real Italian food as it should be, while keeping the offering affordable for everyone.
SSP insists that no compromises are made, ensuring the use of well sourced, seasonal and artisan ingredients, and utilising Gino’s vast range of contacts across the diverse regions of Italy. The restaurant will be open from 7am until 11pm most evenings.
D’Acampo said: “After a year of planning, I can’t wait to welcome guests to My Restaurant, Euston Station. I want to give commuters and local residents a proper taste of Italy. I am so excited to be a part of the new food landscape in Euston and every effort has been made to make sure our guests have a truly authentic Italian experience.”
D’Acampo first made his move into premium casual dining when he teamed up with friend and business partner Steven Walker, founder of Individual Restaurants.
