Carluccio’s opens in Aberdeen

Carluccio’s opened its 2nd Scottish outlet, and its 75th restaurant, earlier this month in Aberdeen. The new restaurant at Union Square, is situated on the upper mall, and has a specialist grocery store and delicatessen. Although Celebrity Chef Antonio Carluccio, who helped found the group in 1991, has now taken a backseat with the venture, he still consults on menu development for the chain’s UK sites and in fact visited Aberdeen for the opening. Carluccio’s is known for offering authentic Italian dishes at reasonable prices.
Simon Kossoff, CEO of Carluccio’s, said, “We have been keen to open in Aberdeen for a number of years now and are delighted to have finally found the right site for us.”
The first Scottish Carluccio’s is in Glasgow. It’s not the only Aberdeen restaurant to open last month – Dr Noodles, the Asian restaurant which allows customers to create their own noodle or rice box combinations, also opened on Union Street. This now brings the number of Dr Noodles outlets to three. It also has restaurants in Dundee and St Andrews and they open from 11am until 10pm. The chain is owned by Stuart Crithon.
