tapas revolutionSPANISH chef Omar Allibhoy and founder of his Tapas Revolution group of restaurants has agreed to take a 3,000 sq ft unit in the first phase of Chester council’s £300m Northgate development.

Trained by legendary chef Ferran Adria of El Bulli, he has also written two bestselling Spanish cookbooks – Tapas Revolution and Spanish Made Simple.

Allibhoy opened his first restaurant in Westfield, London, in 2010 followed by Shoreditch, London; Bluewater, Kent; Grand Central, Birmingham; Meadowhall, Sheffield (pictured); Eldon Square, Newcastle; and Southgate, Bath.

Councillor Brian Clarke said: “The Tapas Revolution mission is to put tapas on the map in the UK and we’re delighted that a culinary entrepreneur of the quality of Omar Allibhoy has chosen Chester to expand his business.

“This latest letting to Tapas Revolution follows the signing of Cosy Club for a 5,000 sq ft restaurant in Hunter’s Walk fronting onto Northgate Street, Town Hall Square.

There are agreements to lease two of the other restaurant units in Phase 1 of the development that are currently in solicitors’ hands. We are also in discussions with catering operators interested in taking the remaining units.”
