Managing director of Gusto Sue Crimes said: "We're so excited to be opening in York and join the area's thriving food and drink scene. York is a perfect location for our clientele who want delicious food, fantastic drinks and glamorous atmosphere. Mulberry Hall is a well-known building in York, so we are going to convert the venue into our brand style, while maintaining and restoring many of the original building features such as the original brick work and beautiful windows and doors.”
The 4,000 square foot venue will seat up to 120 diners and include separate bar and dining areas. Decor will follow Gusto's signature 'sparkly' vibe including high end finishes, atmospheric lighting, olive trees, art deco glass screens and traditional features.
“We’ve really thought about the design of our restaurants to ensure they have the right atmosphere and match the excellent food, drinks and service that we are well-known for,” said Sue. “Our restaurants in Leeds have proven extremely popular with locals and tourists and we hope for the same success in York.”
Gusto, which is part of the Living Ventures Group, currently has 16 successful restaurants across the UK and the new York site is part of the company’s ongoing plans for growth. The award-winning restaurant offers a classic and contemporary menu, with dishes being freshly prepared on site. Best-selling dishes include spaghetti pesto with green beans, sun-dried tomatoes and rocket leaves and freshly homemade pizzas as well as an extensive drinks list, ‘make your own pizza’ children’s menu and lunch options.
