Nanna Mexico opens third Cambridge eaterie
Fresh street-style food specialist Nanna Mexico has opened its third outlet in Cambridge.
Barker Storey Matthews confirms the regional food chain has taken over the lease on premises at 32 Fitzroy Street. The two-storey property was formerly the home of Dunkin Donuts which closed in the summer.
Barker Storey Matthews was instructed in the autumn to market the 2,007 sq ft premises by way of assignment of the existing lease – which runs until February 2024 – and soon secured interest from Nanna Mexico, whose other Cambridge outlets are on Regent Street and Petty Cury.
Nanna Mexico founder and owner, Luis Navarro, confirms that six additional staff have been recruited to work at the new Fitzroy Street outlet which, when fully fitted out, will serve up to 60 covers. Navarro said: “The support we have received from the business and financial professions in the city has been matched by that of our community of customers.
“Both audiences appreciate what Nanna Mexico is bringing to the appetites and palates of Cambridge. That’s real food prepared from scratch, quality street-style and served with a smile. Cambridge really gets what we are all about.”
The Carpenter’s Arms
The award-winning Pizza, Pots and Pints pub concept which launched in Cambridge in 2015, is to open another site at The Carpenter’s Arms on Victoria Road. The pub will close for a full refit on January 22 and plans to reopen at the end of March.
While this will be the fifth Pizza, Pots and Pints in the region, it’s the second in Cambridge and will complement the flagship site, The Salisbury Arms, on Tenison Road.
Operations director, Benjamin Smith, said: “Cambridge was home to our very first Pizza, Pots and Pints and has proven extremely popular, so of course it made perfect sense to open another on the other side of what is our home city.”
