YORK'S new Vangarde Shopping Park will see the opening of Italian restaurant chain Prezzo's 200th outlet.

Fifty new jobs have been created at the restaurant, which is opening on Wednesday following a £700,000 investment.

The 182 seater restaurant, which also features an outside garden terrace, is the second Prezzo in York in addition to the brand's city centre restaurant in Clifford Street.

Jonathan Kaye, chief executive and founder of Prezzo, said: “We opened our first Prezzo on New Oxford Street, London in 2002 and we’ve come a long way since then.

"We’re thrilled to officially open our 200th restaurant here in the prestigious city of York.

“All of our Prezzo restaurants are individually designed and our York Prezzo is no different. We’ve even created a special champagne cocktail to mark the occasion, the Prezzillini Minster.

“We’d like to say thank you to all of our present and future customers, as we wouldn’t be celebrating our 200th opening if it wasn’t for them.”

Deb O’Donnell, Centre Manager at Vangarde Shopping Park comments: “The opening of Prezzo has been highly anticipated and we’re thrilled to welcome them to the Vangarde family.”

Vangarde Shopping Park is home to York’s first John Lewis department store, the region’s largest M&S store and a state-of-the-art Next store.

Prezzo now joins the impressive line-up of restaurants which includes Giraffe, Costa Coffee, Ed’s Easy Diner, Nando’s and Frankie & Benny’s.

Great comment, when are you opening a restaurant with all the waiters and kitchen staff on £40k per year? Brilliant idea, sadly I do not think I could afford to eat there.

I wasn't asking the staff to be paid £40k a year.........it's just so sad that York Labour are turning York into a Northern Milton Keynes :-(

It's odd that nationally Labour are campaigning against low paid part time jobs yet here in York they are claiming them as a success.

With so many restaurants there, you'd expect there to be some other draw to Monks Cross other than just shops.... perhaps an arena where bands and music groups can perform (which can also be iced over for public ice skating fridays and saturdays, with a local ice hockey team match on sundays), a multiplex cinema, bowling, and so on...

Also it's a shame that the bus service that actually goes through areas of housing, the 12, stops going up that way after 5pm - leaving only the 9, which goes nowhere near areas of mass housing, to carry on running empty into the evening whilst people living locally drive up there because their local bus service stopped running hours ago.
