On Tuesday 12th April 2022, The Real Greek is opening its first North East location in Newcastle’s bustling Eldon Square, a popular dining destination for locals and visitors. The opening marks The Real Greek’s positive expansion plans and rapidly advancing pursuit into the North of England, where the restaurant group has opened two locations, both in Manchester, in the past four months.
The new 154-cover restaurant, with both indoor and outdoor seating, is launching with an enticing special offer, providing diners with 50% off food from the Main Menu, from the day of opening for a few days only, so be sure to book while spaces last. The offer will be available each day for dine-in only.
Eldon Square is a popular shopping destination in Newcastle, host to a number of popular restaurants and bars. The Real Greek adds to the colour of the destination with an authentic Greek offering. The menu is designed for social dining, with a choice of traditional and contemporary Greek meze dishes, flame-grilled meats, souvlaki wraps and salads, all piled high on the table for sharing over Greek wine.
This will be The Real Greek’s 24th site; its eleventh outlet outside of the capital and its second new restaurant to open in 2022. Following strong demand for authentic Greek cuisine, The Real Greek continues to expand its portfolio of restaurants around the country, with a focus currently on the North.
Nabil Mankarious, Managing Director at The Real Greek, comments: “We’re thrilled to be opening another restaurant in the North of England and look forward to appealing to locals and visitors of Newcastle with our unique and authentic offering. With such a bustling location, we expect strong footfall. This is our next big step in expanding our popular offering in the north, and it marks our second opening of the year – so we are thrilled to be off to a strong start.”
