TWO NEW eateries are going to open in the next few weeks outside the Broadway Shopping Centre in Bradford.

Luxury dessert restaurant Haute Dolci will open next to Pizza Express at Easter while Brazilian grill restaurant chain Estabulo is set to launch a new branch between Zizzi and Tiffin Coffee Grande in the next few weeks.

The two venues are included in the Broadway’s latest leaflet which shows Haute Dolci on Broadway and Estabulo in the old proposed Papadoms unit on Charles Street.

The shopping centre confirmed that the two new eateries were on their way with the lease confirmed for the former and talks ongoing for the latter.

Haute Dolci has eight outlets around the county with the nearest in Leeds.

It features a sweet menu featuring the likes of waffles, cakes and pancakes, a cafe menu with items like burgers and salads, a vegan and gluten-free selection and a take-away menu.

Some stores also offer private dining although it is not known whether the Bradford outlet will feature this.

Estabulo Rodizio Bar & Grill has eight branches across Yorkshire and the North East and features the Brazilian traditional method of cooking.

This involves taking cuts of meat, which are then skewered and cooked slowly on open flames with all the meat served to customers fresh at the table, straight from the grill.

The restaurant also serves unlimited sides and a gourmet salad and hot buffet bar.

It is to open in the unit that was to be the home of Papadoms, which was to feature a £1.2 million fit out to create a bar and cocktail lounge on the ground floor and a 400-seat restaurant on the first floor level.

The restaurant was to create 60 full-time equivalent jobs, employing about 90 people in total, but the project collapsed due to financial problems in May 2018.

Sanjeev Sanghera, founder and chief executive of Bavava Restaurants, the firm behind Papadoms, revealed that it was financial misfortunes which meant the restaurant would not open.

Ian Ward, general manager at The Broadway, Bradford, said: “Haute Dolci will open at Easter in The Broadway, the luxury dessert restaurant has taken a unit that can seat up to 104 diners.

“We’re also currently in discussions with Estabulo, a Brazilian grill restaurant, and will announce further details in due course.

“January has marked an exciting start to 2020, both restaurants offer customers a new and exciting dining experience further adding to The Broadway’s growing and diverse portfolio.”

Mike Cartwright, of Bradford Chamber of Commerce, welcomed the news.

He said: “We welcome the opening of the new eateries in the city. It will improve the offer and attractiveness of Bradford, and help to bring in more visitors and so support the economy.

“We need to broaden the range of leisure activities in the city, and so help to provide an improved city centre experience, and so this news is another step in that direction.

“It’s a good start to the year and let’s hope there will be similar stories to follow soon.”

The Telegraph & Argus contacted the two chains for a comment but they did not respond by the time of going to press.
