Tedfords to open new Belfast city centre restaurant
Belfast seafood restaurant Tedfords is to open a second venue in the city centre, creating 20 new jobs.
Tedfords Kitchen will complement the original Tedfords Restaurant, which has overlooked the River Lagan from Donegall Quay for 15 years.
The casual dining restaurant will open just across the road at 1 Lanyon Quay, near the Belfast Waterfront - in a 4,000 sq ft unit that was previously the Harbour View Teppanyaki Restaurant.
It will have 90 covers and a wine bar.
The team have just six weeks to fit out the restaurant and train staff - as they want to open in time for the Tall Ships coming to Belfast on July 2.
Shaun Wallace at McConnell Chartered Surveyors, who negotiated the acquisition and letting, said: "Our client was delighted to secure the purchase of these high profile riverside premises overlooking the Waterfront Hall, and to attract such a well-respected and established restaurant operator in a very short space of time."
