Two new restaurants are to open in Beverley’s Flemingate, one of which is featuring smokers and a wood-burning grill and another which has an open kitchen and visible pizza oven.
FirePit Smokehouse & Sports Bar due to open this summer, will take a 7,670 sq ft unit and offer a range of signature American dishes.
The new restaurant will be the second of a new concept launched by the management team at the BurningNight Group, who also launched the successful Potting Shed Bar and Gardens with sites in Beverley and Bingley.
Meanwhile, Buca di Pizza will take a 3,200 sq ft unit between FirePit Smokehouse & Sports Bar and Gourmet Burger Kitchen, with space for 120 covers inside and a further 45 covers outside.
The pizza brand has invested £350,000 on the new restaurant and bar a bistro-style setting with an exposed kitchen and pizza oven. The growing pizza chain will offer traditional Italian classics with a contemporary twist by incorporating cuisines from around the world.
Owned by brothers Geoff and Nick Thornton, this will be the brand’s fourth site in the UK with the aim of establishing a string of 10 restaurants across the M62 corridor within the next three years.
“Both budding brands are clear examples of the fast paced growth of independent business in Yorkshire and we are delighted they have chosen Flemingate as destination to continue this momentum. The latest signings demonstrate the centre’s strength as a location for investment and also its strong appeal as a leading retail and leisure destination in the region. Both Buca Di Pizza and FirePit Smokehouse & Sports Bar have a distinctive and unique offer that will complement and enhance the existing dining line up,” commented David Donkin, property director at Wykeland Group.
