Spanish wine and food stalwart Evuna is opening in Altrincham.
The restaurant group already has three branches, two in Manchester and one in Knutsford and will now open at 84-86 Stamford New Road, in the unit recently vacated by EAT.kaizen.
It has taken a 15 year lease on the 1.750 sq ft ground and basement premises at a rent of £30,000 per annum.
Its first venture on Deansgate, borne from a standalone wine importing venture by Frances Dowler and her daughter Jane, is celebrating its 15th birthday and now encompasses outlets in the Northern Quarter and Knutsford.
Jane Dowler, founder, Evuna, said: “We have had our eyes on this territory for a while and are delighted to have secured this new outlet in Altrincham which has become a real foodie haunt.”
Evuna will be offering its tested template of tapas and paella along with an interesting selection of wines from small producers of Iberian regional wines.
It will be opening early in January 2019 after it has completed an extensive refurbishment in the Knutsford style to provide a 24-seater bar, 50 restaurant covers with a further 20 on an outside terrace.
Daniel Lee, director, Regional Property Solutions, who acted for the landlord Lorcom Properties Limited, said: “After a successful amendment to the permitted hours of operation, we managed to swiftly conclude the lease. An excellent letting to an established high quality restaurant which I am confident will trade very well on this ever evolving independent Stamford New Road position”.
