Cuzina

Cuzina set to open on former Slumdog site

Cuzina, serving meze-style Greek cuisine, is set to open on Radcliffe Road in mid-December following a £150,000 investment. Offering meze with a modern twist, Cuzina is owned by Nicholas Procopiou, the son of Maria and Chris Procopiou, who ran Greek restaurant Pappas on the site for 30 years. Pappas closed in 2013 and was replaced by Indian restaurant Slumdog Kitchen and Bar, owned by former Notts and England batsman Usman Afzaal, which closed two years later.

Cuzina will offer dishes such as prawn saganaki, marinated chick gyros wrapped in flat bread, honey feta coated in sesame seeds with honey orange and thyme sauce and homemade loukoumades (Greek honey balls / donuts) – served with Nutella. The drinks menu will include cocktails, wine from Greece, Cyprus and Italy and Greek craft beer. Procopiou told the Nottingham Post: “A lot of people in the area still talk about Pappas and it’s great people remember it. Cuzina is going to serve Greek-inspired cuisine but it’s not going to be traditional, it is going to be a new concept with fresh ideas inspired by restaurants in London. It’s going to add something new to the area”

The Embankment re-opens after refurbishment

The Embankment re-opened on 12th November following a £600,000 refurbishment.

From outside the refurbishment looks amazing, showing signs of old school pub charm with a modern twist, which fits the style of this distinctive building.

Castle Rock are the new owners of The Embankment and are keen to ensure that the building still remains a hub for the community. The facilities will be set over three floors with eight distinct areas and four separate bars. There will be a beer garden for when the winter frosts have gone and a dispensary and a sports bar perfect for pre match drinks. Upstairs will remain a function room which will be for hire for all occasions.

You will be able to find Castle Rock real ales on the bar alongside premium lagers, spirits and locally roasted coffee.

Why not pop down this weekend and give it ago.
