TAPASYA announces new £1 million restaurant in Fruit Market Hull
Ambitious plans for a striking new restaurant in Hull’s Fruit Market were announced today, in the latest major investment into the city’s cultural and creative quarter.
Tapan Mahapatra and Mukesh Tirkoti the men behind the Tapasya restaurant brand, are pleased to announce plans to open a new signature restaurant in September 2016.
Overlooking Hull Marina and aptly named “Tapasya @ Marina”, the new restaurant based in the former CatZero building, will offer Tapasya’s signature cuisine and entertaining style as well as farm-to-table seasonal ingredients. The restaurant will be just yards from Humber Street, the heart of a new waterside urban village.
The owners are investing £1m in the restaurant and its opening will create 30 jobs. Tapasya once again takes the city’s dining scene to exciting new heights and is sure to become a premier dining destination for local patrons and for visitors to the area.
Tapan Mahapatra, founder of Tapasya, said: “Our latest investment is a clear sign we are making a strong commitment to support and stimulate the regeneration of the Fruit Market area and promote tourism in Hull ahead of Hull UK City of Culture 2017, of which we are strong advocates.
“We believe the Fruit Market is the perfect place for more local people and visitors to the city to enjoy Tapasya’s unique dining experience.”
Since opening on Beverley Road, Hull, in 2013, Tapasya has upheld its reputation for providing Indian cuisine like no other. By building up relationships with local suppliers of the finest Yorkshire produce, the restaurant has been able to offer quality fare, prepared with ancestral Indian methods. This combination has resulted in a culinary experience unique to the local area.
At the helm of Tapasya @Marina’s kitchens is a new Chef from a prestigious Michelin Star restaurant in London. The Chef, who will be announced shortly, focuses on carefully hand-crafted dishes that let the quality of seasonal ingredients shine through and will be the tastemaker behind the new menus. Over his 15-year career, the Chef has drawn on his Northern Indian roots to pioneer culinary sensations that inspire diners. The Tapasya brand is well known for its “hero” New Menus and Food Provenance and has recently launched a new Indian Summers and seven-course tasting menu with a gin pairing.
