The Lord Mayor of Sheffield is set to officially open a new restaurant in the city centre.
The El Paso Mexican and Italian restaurant has opened in the former Moorfoot Tavern, on Cumberland Street, near The Moor.
The venue started trading on New Year’s Eve and has created 20 jobs.
El Paso previously occupied smaller premises on the same street, where it was located for 20 years.
But due to the regeneration plans for the Moor the owners decided the time was right to expand and spent £250,000 transforming the former pub.
Sergio Arenas, El Paso spokesman, said: “The move next door into bigger premises is undoubtedly the most exciting thing to happen in El Paso’s history.
“The reaction we’ve been getting so far has been fantastic and we’re all looking forward to Coun Vickie Priestley undertaking our official opening.”
Sandra Barley, The Moor liaison manager, said: “We’re delighted to welcome the new El Paso to The Moor regeneration area.
“The work they’ve done transforming the Moorfoot Tavern is breathtaking and their new business reflects the vision we’ve got for the future of the area.”
