North-west England restaurant group Ego is to open its fourth Mediterranean restaurant this autumn, in Stockton Heath, Cheshire.
The 3,000sq ft site will seat 120 covers and complements existing sites in Chester, Heswall in the Wirral and Liverpool city centre.
Director of Ego Restaurants Jonathan Poole said: "I am confident that our offer will be well received by what we feel is a very sophisticated local market."
Ego Stockton Heath will create about 25 jobs for the local economy. The design will feature terracotta, wrought iron, warm colours and wooden furniture.
