A RETRO American-style restaurant is the latest retailer to take on a unit at the Vangarde Shopping Park being built at Monks Cross, York.

Ed’s Easy Diner has signed up, leaving only one unit left to let. It adds to brands already lined up for the development, including Costa Coffee, Prezzo, Nando’s, Frankie & Benny’s and York’s first Giraffe restaurant will all be open for business in April this year.

Richard France, managing director of developers The Oakgate Group, said: “The addition of Ed’s Easy Diner to our restaurant line up gives another amazing dimension to our already impressive food offering.

"We now have only one 1,000 sq ft unit remaining, which has already received a tremendous amount of interest. However, we’re looking for an exciting operator to fill the last space in order to complete our fantastic line-up.”

The development was due to open in April, he said.
