I mentioned this on one of the umpteen Coming Soon posts last year, but looks like Le Bistrot Pierre will be opening in Birmingham in Spring 2016.
The Independent French restaurant group are set to open in a Grade II listed building in Gas Street, which has been empty for several years. Le Bistrot Pierre’s co-owners have big plans to refurbish the historic building to bring it back to its former glory, no doubt be helped by a £9.8 million investment from private equity firm Livingbridge, which has accelerated the group’s expansion plans across the UK.
Rob Beacham, co-owner of Bistrot Pierre said “Having acquired the premises in a prime location on Birmingham’s canals about three years ago, we always knew we wanted to open in the city.”
“This opening is particularly exciting as it’s been a long process to secure planning approval and it’s such a unique premises to be developing. We have been working closely with our architects to make best use of the stunning building, which will have original features throughout, and will give diners a real sense of its heritage which is all part of the experience we want to create.”
The privately-owned restaurant group currently has 14 bistrots across the UK including in nearby Leicester and Leamington Spa.
