We might expect an Italian restaurant to be designed in the best possible taste.
It is the most-anticipated restaurant opening in York this year. And when it flings open its doors to the general public on Monday (March 27), you’re unlikely to be disappointed.
St Helen’s Square, York
Opens Monday, March 27
Every care has been taken to convert the historic buildings which once housed the Terry’s shop and TSB bank on St Helen’s Square.
The Grade II listed building is back to its glorious best, with a wonderfully reinstated feature staircase below the glass dome, beautiful floors and lighting, and stunning views across the square from the large windows.
To mark the launch of Carluccio’s, the restaurant are inviting York people to take advantage of an opening offer.
Everyone gets 50% off food on evening reservations after 5pm, from Monday, March 27 to Sunday, April 2 2017.
The 168-cover establishment offers a bar and restaurant spread over two floors. It is open for breakfasts, lunches, cocktails, dinners and everything in between.
Highlights of the menu include slow cooked duck pappardelle with pork, pancetta and mushrooms, as well as crab macaroni in a creamy cheese sauce.
A collection of new hand-stretched, thin and crispy pizzas are also likely to prove popular.
Terry’s Bar on the ground floor is named in honour of the building’s confectionary history.
It is there for people to enjoy an apertivo before they dine or a digestive after a meal. The Carluccio’s mixologists have even invented a new cocktail especially for York – the Chocolate Orange Negroni.
And there is even room for expansion. An atmospheric room at the top of the building, now empty, will be renovated ready to become a space for private functions, perhaps in time for summer.
