The City Grill Group invested 300,000 euros in the redevelopment of the restaurant Pescăruş on the shores of Lake Herăstrău, a project signed by the architect Mihai Popescu.
With an area of 1,400 sqm and a capacity of 900 seats (600 interior and 300 outdoor), Pescăruş Restaurant is the largest restaurant in the City Grill Group portfolio.
It was taken over in 2015, and this year’s arrangement represents the first major investment of the new owner in the interior of the restaurant, in order to turn it into a standard of modern Bucharest gastronomy.
“Pescarus is a restaurant with tradition, a destination space that attracts both a young audience and a nostalgic audience. The restaurant meets the expectations and falls on the growth path we thought 2015 when we decided to include this brand in the Group’s portfolio. We see a steady two-figure rise from year to year. In this context, our investment in rearrangement of the interior is the natural step to bring the restaurant into the spotlight, preserving its unique charm that attracts customers for several decades, “says Daniel Mischie, CEO of Group City Grill.
