Belfast eatery Flame has announced its move to its new £85 million Ewart building.

The town centre eatery Flame is moving into the £85 million Ewart building, one of the city's latest office buildings.

"CBRE NI are delighted to have been concerned within the letting's success of the £85m workplace improvement together with the current letting of the bottom flooring retail unit to Flame."

Flame, a favourite venue in Belfast since 2013, will open The Ewart's twin 6.207sq m restaurant in early summer 2023, likely to be located at the bottom floor of the building and open via Franklin Road. It will offer an all-day meal to the large number of the company's staff at the building, as well as to wider clientele in the centre of the city and visitors alike.

Flame has been working on Howard Street for about a decade.

Built in 1870, The Ewart is the ultimate building by MRP and McAleer & Rushe's Bedford Sq, enhanced with a 17-storey building adding to the unique Grade B-listed sandstone storehouse.
