Shed Bistro on Belfast's Ormeau Road is investing over £150,000 in an expansion project.
The restaurant has taken over a shop unit next to it, and the expansion project will more than double the size of the venue's kitchen and floor space as well as protect the existing 12 jobs at the restaurant, create an additional eight jobs and provide apprenticeship opportunities.
The Belfast Telegraph quotes Christina Taylor of Shed Bistro as saying, "We are really excited to unveil our ambitious plans to expand Shed Bistro. As well as a beautiful, stylish new space, our customers can expect more fantastic food, delicious drinks and homely hospitality.
"It has been a tough few months for us and so many others in our industry, so we are really proud that we have been able to not only sustain our business, but to grow Shed Bistro. We couldn't have done it without our dedicated team and our loyal customers who gave us the determination to overcome the challenges, so we want to thank them all for their support."
