Established in 1997, the Tampopo restaurant chain is evolving into one of the more innovative and successful brands in the north of England. Harrison Ince designed three restaurants for the chain, each with its own individual charm and identity.
The first to open was Albert Square in Manchester, which lies in a top lit basement and displays the characteristics that flow through each of the restaurants. The open kitchen, the bench seating, the clean, minimalist interior and the clever use of lighting are all themes that have been developed during the evolution of Tampopo. Since the opening of the Manchester restaurant Harrison Ince has designed and completed Tampopo's seventh restaurant in Reading and anticipate designing many more in the future.
