Gino D’Acampo opens first pizza restaurant within Manchester’s Next

gino d'acampoTV chef Gino D’Acampo has opened his first joint venture with Next at its store in Manchester Arndale Centre.

Situated on the first floor and accessed both from the store and a dedicated entrance on Corporation Street, My Pizza & Prosecco Bar by Gino D’Acampo seats over 200 people.

The restaurant has been designed on a grand scale with high ceilings and a glass façade with a panoramic view of Cathedral Gardens and some of Manchester’s most iconic buildings.

At its heart is an open kitchen featuring two handmade, copper wood-fired Italian pizza ovens and a cold counter including an ice cream bar.  Taking centre stage is a 23-metre island prosecco bar.

The restaurant has Gino’s trade mark washed woods, Carrara marble and striking green leather while the clever use of space has been designed to allow a very casual, all day, every day drinking and dining experience.

Free powerful WIFI, complimentary work stations and games room – all part of Gino’s vision of providing shoppers with more than just a dining experience but a lifestyle.

“I’m super excited to be opening My Pizza and Prosecco Bar in Manchester and start my new partnership with Next. What more can someone want than great pizza, great prosecco and a bit of retail therapy,” said D’Acampo.

The restaurant in Next is close to his venue under the My Restaurant brand in Manchester’s Corn Exchange which opened nearly two years ago. @copy NewspaperTimes - All rights reserved
