Screen Shot 2015-06-10 at 09.26.19The latest bar and restaurant to add to the ever broadening Newcastle dining scene is opening its doors on Saturday 20th June, just in time for Father’s Day on the 21st.

Solano’s will be bringing a taste of traditional Peruvian cuisine to the city, the only Peruvian restaurant outside of London.

Joint north east owners, Chris Levee, Alfonso Yanez and Linda Deacon, have invested £100,000.00 in the restaurant to resurrect the restaurant site that was formerly Escobars at Amen Corner.

Chris  says  “Former NUFC player Nolberto Solano has encouraged us to use the name Solano’s as there are strong connections with Newcastle and himself, which everyone in Newcastle can relate to. Nobby loves the idea of his native food being served here in Newcastle and he’s desperate for us to open the doors. No doubt he’ll be a regular!”

The restaurant will employ 16 staff, who will have specialised training prior to opening to ensure they fully understand the unique Peruvian menu.

Linda, of Linda Deacon Estates says ” We are delighted to be opening Solano’s in Newcastle, to offer the people of the north east a unique dining experience with a South American ambience. The culture of the city has changed dramatically over the last ten years so we believe a touch of Peruvian cuisine will excite diners.”

A private launch party is scheduled for Thursday 18th June and open to the public from Saturday 20th June.

Fathers will receive a free drink of their choice, on Sunday 21st June
