Directors of Gusto have been bowled over by the fantastic support for the premium brand’s newest restaurant – even before the doors have swung open!
Gusto Lytham – the company’s first ever Lancashire restaurant – will officially open on Thursday April 14 at 5pm.
Directors and staff have already received a tremendous Fylde coast welcome for what looks set to be one of Lancashire’s culinary events of the year.
Managing Director of Gusto, Sue Crimes, said: “We are really excited to be opening the doors on Thursday and, from what everyone has told us, so is Lytham!
“We’ve received so many fantastic messages of support from the local community, through social media, from fellow business owners and from people coming up to us on the street as they’ve watched the restaurant take shape. Everyone has given us a legendary Lancashire welcome.
“We feel we are bringing something really new and really special to this beautiful town and we cannot wait to show off the restaurant, our first class customer service and, of course, wonderful food and drink.”
Gusto has invested more than £1 million in the 4,000sq ft restaurant and bar, situated on Dicconson Terrace, alongside Lytham’s famous Green.
The Grade II listed building has been lavishly transformed into a stunning 130-cover restaurant, with dining for 40 on its outside terrace.
More than 60 jobs have been created with all staff trained to Gusto’s gold standard of customer service.
Sue added: “We are delighted with the team we have put together and so pleased to have created so many jobs for local people right here in Lytham.
“Customer service is absolutely key and Gusto prides itself on offering nothing but the best to our customers.
“The restaurant is stunning, the team is in place – now all we need to do is open the doors and give Lytham the full Gusto experience!”
Gusto, which opened its first site in Cheshire’s Alderley Edge in 2005, promises its Lytham restaurant will boast a real ‘sparkly and aspirational vibe’ with its fashionable décor and a choice of more than 50 stylish cocktails.
The classic and contemporary menu uses fresh, carefully selected, simple ingredients to offer a wide choice of premium British and European dishes.
A lunch and brunch option, comprehensive worldwide wine list and a selection of unique specials with a family focused Children’s Menu served until 6pm.
