Bar Soba and Pizza Punks founder Brad Stevens has secured a site in Glasgow for a new South East Asian restaurant concept, MCA understands.

Mamasan Bar & Brassiere will open Ingram Street, in the city centre.

Stevens said the ambition was to make Mamasan “one of Scotland’s most iconic and exciting dining and drinking destinations”.

The menu will take inspiration from the flavours of South East Asia paired up with Scottish produce “from farm, field and sea”.

Stevens also runs three Pizza Punks restaurants in Glasgow, Belfast and Newcastle, which he recently said are “absolutely flying”

He plans to open three more, and is looking at city centre locations in Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Leeds, Sheffield and Bristol.

The wood fired pizza brand, which serves unlimited toppings for a set price, cocktails and riotous tunes, will consider fitted or shell units 3000-4500 sq ft preferably with at least 2,500 on ground floor.

Pizza Punks recently appointed Mark McColloch, formerly of Yo! and Peret, as part time chef marketing officer.

Stevens left Bar Soba in 2018 to concentrate on building Pizza Punks.

The Glasgow-based bar group was acquired by Camerons Brewery late last year.
