A big new burger and American themed restaurant is to open in Doncaster town centre in the New Year.

NYC Bar and Grill, which already has a restaurant in Bawtry, has announced plans to open a new outlet on Wood Street in 2015.

The venue will open in premises formerly occupied by Liberty Grill, a similarly themed US diner restaurant, which closed its doors earlier this year.

Posters advertising for new staff have already gone up in the windows of the building which was also the Tonik bar in recent years.

A statement on the restaurant’s website said: “It started with a dream that turned into a reality. The idea was to form a great forward thinking American restaurant brand that would be known for providing great attentive customer service with smiley friendly faces while serving the freshest modern American food the NYC way - using numerous bespoke in-house recipes, unique to us which makes our food taste the way it does.”

The first NYC restaurant opened in Bawtry on December 19 last year and “since then the brand hasn’t looked back.”

“With our second restaurant planned to open in early 2015 and other sites planned for the back end of 2015 and early 2016, everyone will soon be getting the chance to sample NYC if they already haven’t.”

The restaurant’s menu includes burgers, ribs, steak and chicken.
