Tapas Revolution, the tapas concept from Spanish chef Omar Allibhoy, has further strengthened its pipeline of openings for next year, after securing a site in Sheffield.

The four-strong group, which recently opened its first site outside the south east in Birmingham’s Grand Central scheme, is understood to have secured a site in the Oasis foodcourt area in the Meadowhall shopping scheme.

The company is set to open its first restaurant in the north after securing a site in Newcastle.

It has taken a unit at the Grey’s Quarter part of intu’s Eldon Square shopping scheme, for an opening next year.

It will join 20 other operators, including TGI Friday’s, Ed’s Easy Diner, giraffe, Handmade Burger Co. and Bella Italia at the new multi-million pound dining space.

Tapas Revolution opened its first high street location in Shoreditch at the end of February.

Earlier this year, Allibhoy told M&C that the group was actively looking for sites in Oxford, Cambridge, Brighton, Liverpool, Sheffield and Manchester to grow the brand across the UK.

The group also currently operates the brand in Bluewater and Westfield London.

Allibhoy’s vision said his vision is to create a group of restaurants with the same principles rather than a chain of identical restaurants so each has its own interior style and adjustable menu.
