10 new jobs to be created when Biblos opens at Whapping Wharf
Biblos will become the latest independent food retailer to launch at Bristol’s Wapping Wharf when it opens its doors this winter.
It’s a fast-food fusion of Middle Eastern and Caribbean cuisine.
Since owners William Clarke and Ariel Czackers set up their first Biblos in Stokes Croft in 2010, they have gone on to open outlets in St Werburghs and Gloucester Road, while also building a presence at local festivals.
The new restaurant, totalling 915 sq ft, will create 10 new jobs and will overlook the harbour from its home at 6 Gaol Ferry Steps – the newly opened route that runs through Wapping Wharf, connecting south Bristol with the city centre.
William Clarke said: “Our new eatery will serve fresh homemade wraps for which Biblos is renowned, as well as our new Kitchen Calypso menu which is exclusive to Wapping Wharf.
“There will be a bigger emphasis on Caribbean inspired dishes such as jerk chicken, prawn gumbo, oxtail stew and my favourite roasted jerk belly pork; all this will be accompanied with coconut rice ’n’ peas, slaw and plantain.”
