Director of sales at the new Ferensway hotel, Helen Symonds, confirmed the hotel would feature a celebrity branded restaurant, although concrete details will not be announced in the next couple of weeks.
Eight new jobs have been advertised for the hotel, including the role of a food and beverage assistant working in the restaurant.
The £25m hotel development will have 165 bedrooms, a rooftop bar and a 1,000 sqft ballroom for events and conferences.
It will not be the first celebrity chef branded restaurant to open in the city, with Gino DiCampo opening a new restaurant and prosecco bar at Next in Kingswood in December 2017.
