Bar and restaurant operator Gusto has made Glasgow the location for its next site in a move that will take the number of properties it owns to 11.
The group will create up to 60 new jobs when it opens the restaurant on an 8,000 square foot site previously occupied by Clydesdale Bank in the city centre.
It will be set over two floors and feature two private dining rooms and a large outside terrace.
Knutsford-based Gusto Restaurant and Bar used to be owned by Living Ventures but was the subject of an MBO last year. Living Ventures founders Tim Bacon and Jeremy Roberts are both understood to be investors in the new Gusto business.
Sue Crimes, managing director of Gusto, was quoted in the Scottish press as saying: “This is a very exciting time for myself and the Gusto team — we are delighted to bring Gusto to Glasgow. We feel Gusto will fit in perfectly to the already vibrant restaurant scene in Glasgow and offer our guests a unique dining experience.”
Inspired by the traditional grand cafes of Europe, Gusto offers a classic and contemporary Italian menu based on fresh, simple ingredient.
