Zizzi Norwich. A Phoenix From The Flames
“If you can’t stand the heat, then get out of the kitchen” goes the saying. In Zizzi Norwich’s case, this advice could not have been more appropriate. Back in October last year, our beautiful restaurant went up in flames, much to the shock and disappointment of everybody connected; our staff AND our loyal customers (luckily nobody was hurt).
But the time has come. Zizzi Norwich is back and has risen from the ashes and reopen to the public on Friday 11th March. And so is the vast majority of the staff who were with us prior to the fire. It just doesn’t get much more exciting than that. Well it does actually. We thought we didn’t want to just give it a lick of paint and reopen. We wanted it to look better than ever.
A stunning makeover has made Zizzi Norwich jaw-droppingly beautiful. It’s inspiration? Well the building’s rich history. Previously an old Victorian coach house, it’s now awash with bold Victorian colours, intricate wallpapers and equestrian linked design elements. The restaurant boasts a stunning new open kitchen and a section that we affectionately call “the stable” complete with old saddle partitions and cobble look flooring, banquette booths and artwork by the fantastic Amy Murray (who previously made Zizzi One New Change look incredible).
So the time has come to say “welcome back” to Norwich’s little piece of history.
