PLANS for a new eaterie will bring a Latin American buzz to Prestwich high street, say supporters.

Stephen Vickerstaff is behind proposals to convert former financial offices in Bury New Road into Gorge restaurant and bar.

The applicant already runs The Manchester Barbecue Company and see the venture as a natural extension for their trade.

In a supporting statement, it has been said: "It is our intention to bring to the Prestwich High Street a BBQ-enthused flame grilled bar and bistro with a vibe. Gorge is the next natural step for our already successful Manchester BBQ catering company where we cater for hundreds of people per week."

Laurence Juster, of Michael Herwald & Co, said: “Gorge will bring to Prestwich a taste and vibe from a corner of the world not yet seen by local residents."
