Michelin-starred chef Sat Bains today revealed plans to open a second, more informal, restaurant in Nottingham.
The chef, whose Restaurant Sat Bains on the outskirts of the city picked up the AA's top accolade of five rosettes on Monday, wants to launch a 12- to14-seat eaterie with a Japanese-style counter cooking and serving food in front of customers.
"It's going to be based around Japanese techniques and in the style of a tapas bar like Barrafina," he told Caterersearch
Bains, and his wife and business partner Amanda, are currently in talks with a number of property agents in Nottingham over potential sites in the city centre with a view to opening next year.
"I want somewhere with a lot of passing trade, although I will still take bookings - I certainly won't mind a queue," he said. "I want it to be somewhere you can pop in at 11pm to have a quick bite and a nice glass of wine - there is a niche in the city for something like that."
Bains is looking to recruit team of four to staff the new restaurant, with one front-of-house and three chefs/waiters.
