Carluccio’s has confirmed it will open at Grand Central in Birmingham late this month.

The company’s 93rd UK restaurant will be its second unit in the city, alongside Brindley Palce, which opened in 2010. It is the fourth launch for Carluccio’s in recent months, following Cheltenham (May), Barnet (June) and Bankside (July).

The 3,840 square foot Grand Central site has 90 covers and 11 bar seats.

Simon Kossoff, chairman at Carluccio’s, said: “The opening of Grand Central Birmingham is an exciting time for the city and we’re very happy to be a part of it. This new retail hub adds a huge amount of variety to the Birmingham dining scene, for locals, visitors and commuters. Following the popularity of our first restaurant here at Brindley Place we hope that our second restaurant will be a welcome addition to the area and we look forward to opening our doors.”
