Chef Gino D’Acampo to work with Meliá Hotels International group

Famous chef Gino D’Acampo will curate a series of restaurants and bars to create a new hospitality brand with Innside by Melia, part of Meliá Hotels International. It is said that it will also open a restaurant in Innside Newcastle, which has started to host its guests as of today.

The firm said D’Acampo is determined to set a new bar for Italian dining, harnessing his knowledge of artisan Italian suppliers to ensure guests enjoy only the best ingredients. The menus will feature only dishes created by the chef and his team from his books and TV shows.

Garry Fortune, cluster general manager at Meliá Hotels International, said: “This is a very exciting time, as two lifestyle and destination hospitality brands come together to create a new presence in the UK. It comes at a time when Innside by Meliá is expanding the brand across the UK, Europe and Asia; with our new opening in Newcastle imminent and Liverpool following this summer.
