Italian celebrity chef Gino D’Acampo has visited Manchester today (Friday 5 October) to officially launch his first My Coffee and Deli Bar.
The new Italian fast-casual dining offer, which is located on the ground floor of his Pizza and Prosecco bar in fashion retailer Next, is the chef’s third venue in the city.
Serving Neapolitan coffee and real Italian food, available to eat in or to take away, My Coffee and Deli Bar will offer breakfast, lunch and early evening menu that rotates throughout the day, every day.
The lunch menu includes hand-stretched Neapolitan pizza, homemade pasta and classic sandwiches with an Italian twist – served on artisan Piadina and Spianata breads. The restaurant also serves a selection of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free dishes.
D’Acampo created cold pressed ‘Celebrity Juices’ to serve, named after the ITV2 programme he regularly appears on. All made in house these include Bunton’s Beetroot Boogie, Phillip Schofield’s Feel Good Factor, Keith Lemon’s Carrot Kick and Gino’s Fruit Fantastico. A percentage of all sales will be donated to the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
The launch of Gino D’Acampo – My Coffee and Deli Bar follows the existing restaurants in Leeds, Harrogate, Manchester, Liverpool, Hull and London, with further restaurants to launch in partnership with Individual Restaurants in 2018 and a pipeline in place for 2019.
D’Acampo said: “I’m super happy to officially open the doors to My Coffee and Deli Bar, a place that serves real Italian food, as it should be, to eat in or to go. Lifestyles have changed with more and more of us eating on the move and looking for a quick and varied offer. I don’t believe that convenience should compromise on quality nor come at a premium price.
“At My Coffee and Deli Bar guests can pop in for a quick, real Neapolitan coffee, a bite at breakfast or enjoy lunch. I’ve created a menu that I’m confident will satisfy every taste, all made fresh by my brilliant team.”
