Latin American restaurant chain Las Iguanas will take its UK estate above the 40 mark by opening a giant restaurant in Chester.
The company intends to open a 170-cover venue in June as part of the £8m ‘Dining District’ development on the city’s Pepper Street.
The restaurant, which will create 40 jobs, will incorporate a roof terrace for outdoor dining.
Las Iguanas is the latest big name to pledge its commitment to the new development. Chimichanga, Coast to Coast and Restaurant Bar and Grill have also leased space.
“We’re thrilled to have secured a site on Pepper Street providing us with the opportunity to be right in the heart of this historic and cultural city,” said Carolina Navarrete, general manager of Las Iguanas Chester.
All of Las Iguana’s dishes are made freshly to order, and the traditional-with-a-twist sauces and salsas are homemade every day. The chain also produces separate vegetarian and Vegan menus.
Las Iguanas was started in a quiet Bristol street in 1991 and became something of a local institution, prompting the owners to expand nationally.
