A new Pan-American destination restaurant has been inspired by the region’s industrial heritage.

The Karbon Grill, Kitchen and Bar, which is set to launch in Sunderland’s new Hilton Garden Inn hotel, has used the North East’s proud industrial heritage to inspire its name.

The name pays homage, with a contemporary twist, to the mining heritage that is part of the city of Sunderland and the site on which the hotel is built.

The venue – which launches at the end of April – will offer something truly different in the world of food, aiming to offer food lovers one of the most unique gastronomic experiences in the region.

The menu features Pan-American cuisine, with elements of Mexican and Latin fusion dishes, which will also be complemented by regional specialities.

Hilton Garden Inn Sunderland’s general manager, Kim Kelso, said: “The Karbon Grill Kitchen and Bar is a new and vibrant destination, offering North East diners something very different.

“The stylised elements in its design, coupled with the unique Pan-American menu, reflect our desire to make this one of the most popular and unique destinations in the region.

“We’re confident that the contemporary design and mix of premium, affordable and family-friendly cuisine will appeal to hotel guests, city visitors and food-lovers across the region alike. Added to this, the warm and friendly service that the North East is famed for will make it the go-to place in Sunderland.”

The 100 seater eatery will have a separate children’s selection available for younger visitors and a tailored bar and room service menu is also be available for people staying at the hotel.

The Hilton Garden Inn Sunderland, which is currently under construction next to the Stadium of Light, will open in time for Sunderland AFC’s final home games of the season.

Along with the Carbon Grill Kitchen and Bar, the site will boast 141 en-suite bedrooms, a 24-hour business centre and a number of meeting rooms.
