Another star for top Yorkshire chef
A well-known Yorkshire chef has revealed his new restaurant in York will open on October 22nd, creating around 50 jobs in the city.
Andrew Pern, who is famed for his multi-award-winning restaurant the Star Inn at Harome near Helmsley, announced plans for his new establishment in the converted Engine House building in York’s Museum Gardens earlier this year.
The Star Inn The City will be a 130-cover restaurant, on the banks of the River Ouse, and is expected to create around 50 new jobs, full and part-time.
Andrew, who has notched up a variety of awards throughout his career, will oversee the menu at his new venue while the kitchen will be headed up by Matt Hunter, a celebrated chef formerly of the Michelin-starred Northcote Manor.
Matt will be joined by other chefs who have previously worked at the Star Inn at Harome and Justin Brosenitz, a former student of Scarborough Catering College like Andrew himself, will run the front of house.
Speaking about the Star Inn The City, Andrew said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity to work with the Museum Gardens Trust to be able to bring a little part of the countryside to town in this landmark building, flying the White Rose flag and using its incredible produce. We are aiming to offer the whole package – great food, a beautiful setting, warm service and genuine Yorkshire hospitality.”
The new restaurant will be open all day, serving from breakfast through to dinner, and, despite having not yet opened its doors, already has a number of Christmas bookings.
The Star Inn The City was recently given a license to stay open until 1.30am, Monday to Thursday, and until 2am on weekends.
