Restaurant chain to create 80 jobs in Nottingham city centre

Gusto is set to create 80 jobs in Nottingham city centre when it opens later this year.

As we revealed in June, Gusto is set to open in the former Frankie & Benny’s unit on the corner of King Street and Upper Parliament Street. Building work has begun to transform the site featuring an open kitchen, a cocktail, coffee and cannoli bar and a chef’s-table-style pizza experience.

Matt Snell, CEO at Gusto, said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing a new-look Gusto to the people of Nottingham. The new and improved restaurant and bar will be an evolution of the Gusto brand, offering an immersive experience for brunch, lunch, dinner and drinks.

“Guests will be treated to our iconic Gusto Italian dishes and drinks in the most spectacular of surroundings, watching our talented chefs at work in our truly open kitchen. And that’s not all – we’ve got a chef’s table pizza experience for guests to enjoy too.

“We are currently recruiting for the 80 roles, including management positions, and are already taking bookings for Christmas and beyond. We have found there is a great deal of excitement and anticipation for the opening of Gusto in the city which is fantastic to hear.”

Earlier this year, Gusto closed its West Bridgford venue.
