Italian restaurant celebrates launch at Birmingham’s Mailbox

An Italian restaurant has opened its doors at Birmingham’s Mailbox.

Lucarelli is open for outdoor dining, with a 24-cover terrace and a 16-cover outdoor dining area.

Once lockdown restrictions are fully lifted, the restaurant and terrace area will seat up to 150 guests.

Legal advice on the new venture was provided by Thursfields Solicitors.

Robert Pettigrew, a director in the Commercial Property department at Thursfields, worked with the owners on the agreement and lease for the venue.

Pettigrew said: “It’s great to see restaurants not only opening again but in Lucarelli’s case launching themselves in new and exciting locations, and I was delighted to work with the Lucarelli team on the necessary legal documents.

“The restaurant occupies a prime canalside position and includes a fantastic new glass terrace area overlooking Birmingham’s iconic canals, with additional and exclusive tables outside which makes it really attractive.

“It was important to understand the concept behind Lucarelli so that we could ensure its specific requirements were met.”

Lucarelli has moved in and refurbished the premises formerly occupied by the Red Peppers restaurant.

A spokeswoman for Lucarelli said: “We’d like to send a big thank you to Thursfields Solicitors for making sure all that legal detail was correct so that we could open out terrace and outdoor areas without a hitch.”
