Mayor will unveil Chesterfield's newest eating out experience
The Lord and Lady Mayoress of Chesterfield, Councillor Alexis Diouf and Mrs Vickey-Anne Diouf, will officially unveil the new Giorgio's Italian restaurant at a VIP opening next weekend.
The eagerly awaited eatery, which has been taking shape over the past few weeks on Sheffield Road in the Whittington Moor area, will boast what's believed to be the only wood burning pizza oven in the region.
The stunning state-of-the-art cooker - which cost £17,000 to install - is set to be the centre piece of the 80-seater restaurant which has transformed the former Santiagos building with an £80,000 investment.
Much of the interior of the new restaurant, which will specialise in authentic Italian food, has been hand-painted by celebrated local artist Paul Staveley who was recently commissioned to transform one of the biggest venues of its type in Sheffield - the renowned Cubana tapas bar/restaurant which recently moved to the city centre's Leopold Square.
The Giorgio's VIP opening weekend - which will welcome scores of guests over two nights - will be raising money for Ashgate Hospice.
Giorgio's will officially open to the public next Tuesday, September 30.
The restaurant is the brainchild of Dronfield-based Steve Zsirai who made his name at the renowned Viva Tequila restaurant in Gleadless, Sheffield.
He said: "I'm confident Chesterfield really will have seen nothing like Giorgio's. The interior is truly breathtaking and, as well as the wood burning pizza oven, we've installed a bar area where diners can relax before and after their meals. Whittington Moor is an up-and-coming area and I'm confident that Giorgio's can be a new chapter in its exciting development."
Giorgios' is situated at 427-429 Sheffield Rd, Chesterfield S41 8LT. Bookings can be made on 01246 455 245, or click below to enquire and book your table now.
