World’s “first” dessert restaurant to launch in Altrincham

By David Prior at

A new venture calling itself the world’s first restaurant dedicated purely to desserts is to launch in Altrincham next week.

Fireworks Ice Cream & Desserts is opening in the vacant unit next door to Altrincham Vue Cinema on Denmark Street.

The brand new offering is being launched to “suit a nation which has been inspired by dessert focused TV shows”, say the founders.

The group behind the 140-cover restaurant is also calling on people to “embrace dessert as the main course”.

Fireworks is having its launch party tonight, and will officially open to the public from Monday 13th February. The site was formerly occupied by Mexican chain Chiquito before its closure around 2010.

The founders are hoping the family-focused venture will be the first in a new chain of restaurants, and two further North West sites are understood to have already been secured.
