Over 500 guests attended a glamorous VIP party at Gusto West Bridgford last night (16 February), to toast the official opening of the restaurant on Bridgford Road.
VIPs were invited to a glitzy evening of classic cocktails, canapes and live music to celebrate the launch of the sophisticated restaurant, Gusto West Bridgford – the first to open in the East Midlands.
The stylish restaurant opened up to the public last week (9 February) and was immediately fully-booked for the first weekend.
Managing director of Gusto, Sue Crimes said: “We’ve been thrilled with the response to our new Gusto restaurant in West Bridgford so far. Our party last night was a great success – we had a fantastic turn out of Nottingham movers and shakers and well known faces on the West Bridgford food and drink scene.
“There was a great atmosphere and we’re so pleased with our decision to open the restaurant in West Bridgford – it’s a perfect fit for the area and we can’t wait to welcome more diners to the restaurant.”
Stephanie Dennis, who attended the launch night said: “I had a wonderful night last night, the food was delicious, the drinks were flowing, the members of staff were so welcoming and there was a real buzz about the place.
“I really enjoyed the whole evening and it was great to see so many people attending. It is a great addition to the thriving collection of bar and restaurants in central West Bridgford.”
The latest restaurant has created 50 jobs for the local area and more than £1 million invested in a complete refurbishment, transforming the existing building into the brand’s signature sophisticated design, complete with outside terrace.
The award-winning restaurant offers a classic and contemporary menu, with dishes being freshly prepared on site. Best-selling dishes including spaghetti pesto with green beans, sun-dried tomatoes and rocket leaves and freshly homemade pizzas as well as an extensive drinks list, ‘make your own pizza’ children’s menu and lunch options.
