A new year only means new opportunities and, most importantly, new places to eat. Some amazing places are coming to Bristol very soon that we can’t wait to sample. While many are watching our wallets this January following one of the more expensive months. These new restaurants in Bristol are going to be worth treating yourself to. Start planning your next date night today.
We thought we’d be getting Muse Brasserie in Bristol back in December, but we’ve been made to wait a little longer for the sister site of Cheltenham’s best restaurant. Not to worry, because it will be worth the wait when it arrives. The joint venture of Parisian chef Franck Grillet and Chef Pramod from India will arrive on Prince Street this year. Expect unique French-Indian fusion cuisine, with a setting as lavish as the food.
From the team behind Bosco Pizzeria, on Whiteladies Road in Clifton, is coming a new pizza bar set up on Gloucester Road this year. Pizzucci was first teased back in February of last year but is finally coming to Bristol in 2023. It will serve 18-inch pizzas, slices to go, soft-serve ice cream and frozen cocktails.
Maybe Bristol’s biggest restaurant opening in 2023. BoxHall is by the team behind BoxPark in London and will open in the summer. The massive new food hall on Bristol’s harbourside will include restaurants and bars, from local and independent eateries, as well as feature regular guest pop-ups. Not only food will be made available, however. BoxHall is planning an events programme to show off the best of Bristol’s thriving music scene too. Making it destined to become one of the city’s must-visit places this year.
For all of you taking on Veganuary, you’ll know Bristol isn’t exactly lacking in vegan restaurants. But there might be one meal you are craving more than most. And that’s pasta. It doesn’t taste quite the same without all the lovely cheese… or so we thought. Pastan (which has hosted a pop-up in Bristol before) is proving plant-based pasta dishes can taste just as great. It will be opening on Prince Street very soon.
More of an evolution than a ‘new’ restaurant. But Prime & Pasture will see the wonderful steakhouse Pasture in Redcliffe expand with a butcher’s shop and burger joint. Not only that but there will also be a grocery store and breakfast offerings on site. Expect a continuation of their ethos for ethically and sustainably raised beef.
6. The Bagel Place
It was only last summer that an amazing bagel shop opened up near the Clifton Triangle. But locals are about to receive another in 2023. The Bagel Place, from Cardiff, is opening a second location on Park Street this year. Expect breakfast bagels, open-faced sandwiches, and some lighter bites.
