Tony and Helen Vavoso have taken over the former Jack’s bistro in Wood Street which has now become Fifty Four with the creation of 10 new jobs.
The Scandinavian-inspired restaurant offers a European menu including breakfast, lunch and dinner with fondue and healthy options.
“We hadn’t been especially looking to expand but when these premises which had been Jack’s for so many years became available, we knew we just had to go for it,” said Helen.
“We have been delighted with how things have gone in Lytham and are delighted to be growing into St Annes.
“For some time now, I think St Annes has been relatively written off when compared to Lytham as a dining destination, but we envisage big things for St Annes over the coming years.”
The couple opened casual dining Java in 2009 and Mediterranean style restaurant Spago in 2014 and they regularly attract customers from a wide area.
