Remember the new £70 million dollar Watermark centre that Southampton is building? Well we lied. It’s £85 million. But the good news, the honest news is that we now have more information regarding the eateries and restaurants that are soon to be opening at the complex. The current confirmed list of restaurants for the new complex are, All Bar One, Bills, Byron, Cabana, CAU, Cosmo, Five Guys, Hollywood Bowl, Jamie’s Italian, Nandos, Red Dog Saloon, TGI Fridays, The Diner, Wahaca and Zizzis.
However, there are two other restaurants making their debut in the South Coast of England at Southampton’s Waterside. These are The Real Greek and Project Pie.
Project Pie is a pizza chain with a difference. The equivalent of a pizza pick-n-mix, Project Pie is unique in that foodies start with a fresh 11 inch artisan thin crust dough which is rolled out as you watch. You then select whichever cheese you desire from a selection and any of their 30 something toppings. Once your pizza is created, Project Pie’s 600 degree fahrenheit wood stone oven cooks your delicious construction to perfection in less than 3 minutes. Even better, the restaurant offers a set price for all pizzas, regardless of your chosen toppings. Susan Canavan of Project Pie has said; “This premium destination [Waterside] will allow for a wide variety of people to enjoy our authentic build-your-own pizzas. We are proud to be expanding and be able to provide more people with the chance to experience our artisan pizzas and the fresh ingredients that we boast as part of our food offering.”
The second of the two, The Real Greek, is set to occupy Watermark’s lower promenade – an area covering 325m2. It’ll be the chain’s second restaurant outside of their original in London. The Real Greek offers a wide selection of meze dishes inspired by classic Greek culture resulting in classic Greek cuisine – perfect for sharing with friends and family. Chairman of the chain David Page, stated “We’re very excited to be bringing The Real Greek to Southampton for the first time, and are looking forward to welcoming the city’s diners. We look forward to serving our delicious meze and grilled dishes!”
The head of restaurants and leisure at Waterside, Sarah Fox, has said “Each restaurant allows visitors to enjoy a different taste from around the world, building on the vibrant mix of global cuisine that the development already promises to deliver.”
The Watermark development is set to be completed by Christmas, which means you’ll have a diverse range of restaurants and eateries to satisfy your tastebuds!
