Grand Central attracts world first restaurant for local Birmingham chef
Two independent dining brands have signed at Grand Central, part of the Bullring Estate in Birmingham. Hammerson has secured a new entrant into the market, Holy Moly Macaroni, a Harlem influenced soul food operator, which is opening its debut restaurant alongside another new brand, Tasty Plaice.
Holy Moly Macaroni is launching its 1,750-sq ft restaurant opposite Tortilla. The brand, headed by local Birmingham chef, Anthony Duffy, was founded in 2012 by a group of English friends visiting New York. At the same time fish and chip operator, Tasty Plaice, has opened a 1,100-sq ft restaurant with space for 40 covers.
Sarah Fox, head of restaurants and leisure at Hammerson, said: “These lettings are a result of our proactive asset management strategy, delivering a varied dining offer across the Bullring Estate that combines well known favourites alongside emerging, independent restaurateurs.”
