Hot new restaurant opening confirmed for shopping centre

Visitors to Wakefield’s Trinity Walk can expect a new restaurant opening in the near future.

Expanding independent restaurant chain, Churrasco Group, will launch its latest brand, Casa Peri Peri, at this shopping centre with the fit out already under way.

Former MasterChef UK semi-finalist and international chef, Bobby Geetha, is overseeing the launch of the new dining experience bringing to bear his years of experience from around the globe.

Quality Portuguese-style chicken dishes will be the order of the day set in a brand new layout in the former Pizza Express unit.

The brains behind Casa Peri Peri are the same people who brought the Estabulo restaurant to Wakefield and Fleur Café which form part of the group’s expansion across the north.

Estabulo hit the headlines last year after it hired former royal butler, Trevor Walford, who caught the attention of the nation after handing out hundreds of CVs at Leeds Railway Station.

Geetha said: “Work has already begun on this exciting project and we can’t wait to start serving up our dishes for Wakefield when restrictions relax and hospitality can safely reopen.

“The dining experience will have a quality feel to it – somewhere you can meet for a date or bring the whole family. The experience is really important to us so every aspect is being planned in detail.”

In addition to the flame grilled peri peri chicken, diners can expect slow cooked and grilled peri peri beef short rib, spicy rice protein bowl and hot chocolate fudge brownie.

Churrasco group CEO, Rob Campbell, added: “Our family of brands has gone from strength to strength and knowing how successful Estabulo already is in Wakefield means we are confident Casa Peri Peri will follow suit, especially in such a prime location at Trinity Walk.

“Quality and choice for customers and the creation of new jobs means we have all the right ingredients for something special.”

Cormac Hamilton, Trinity Walk’s centre manager, said: “Casa Peri Peri will be a vibrant new addition to our already strong range of stores and eateries here at Trinity walk.

“It means more jobs, more choice and shows that despite the challenging economic climate Trinity Walk will continue to move forward and evolve.

“Our aim is to always offer an enjoyable and safe experience for millions of visitors every year so when we can bring a new brand to the centre and Wakefield, it’s always extremely exciting.”
