Local Leicestershire Producers To Top The Bill At New Independent Restaurant

New independent restaurant NineB, which will be opening on 16 January 2020 on Leicester’s Great Central Square development, is celebrating the best of Leicestershire’s cuisine by supporting local food and drink suppliers.

The supplier list, which has been created by food and beverage manager Manish Sharma and owners Charles Street Building Group, will include Leicestershire favourites Brockleby’s Melton Mowbray pies, Langton Brewery ale, St Martin’s coffee and Two Birds Spirits gin.

Manish Sharma, food and beverage manager at NineB restaurant, said: “We’re incredibly excited to be working with some of the county’s most prestigious artisan food producers. Our team of chefs is committed to serving high quality Leicestershire food to local people and we knew we had to start with those award-winning suppliers closest to us.”

The menu, which will be released before the restaurant opens, will include an array of local produce. Handmade pies will be supplied by family-run farmers and pie makers Brockleby’s Pies in Melton Mowbray, which is famous for its PGI-status pork pies and often wins gold at the town’s British Pie Awards.

Independent, family-owned brewers Langton Brewery will be supplying NineB’s hand-crafted beer from its Thorpe Langton base and NineB will also be serving its own blend of St Martin’s Coffee, Leicester’s first specialty coffee roasters that is dedicated to sourcing coffees of the highest quality from global producers. St Martin’s will be supplying the beans as well as a coffee machine, and guests will be able to buy bags of their beans from the bar.

The new bar will also serve hand-produced gin from artisan distillery Two Birds Spirits, which distils in small batches of 100 bottles in Market Harborough using its bespoke, hand-built copper stills.

The restaurant, which has been designed by Manchester-based interior designers Koncept ID with the help of the restaurant’s owners Charles Street Building Group, will also provide room service food for adjoining hotel Novotel Leicester. NineB will be Leicester’s newest destination restaurant, offering all-day dining, snacks, coffee, cocktails and craft beer all under one roof.

NineB’s name, branding and ethos is also inspired by the restaurant’s Roman roots, specifically the ‘Stibbe’ mosaic that was excavated from a high-status Roman villa found directly underneath the development in the area of the Roman city known archaeologically as ‘IXb’.

Manish and his team are currently recruiting for a bar supervisor, as well as chefs and waiting staff. The vacancies are listed on the Indeed profile.

Menu details will be released before the opening and bookings will be taken from January 2020.
