Restaurant chain Tampopo has signed a 20-year deal to remain within Manchester's Corn Exchange when it reopens in summer 2015.
Mills & Reeve advised Tampopo on the lease for the 3,700 sq ft unit.
Corn Exchange owner Aviva Investors announced plans in May to transform the city centre building into a dining destination, with 13 restaurants and a boutique hotel established as part of a £30m redevelopment project. In June, developer Queensberry Real Estate said that 10 restaurants units were under offer.
Manchester-based Tampopo has been in the Corn Exchange since 2008. The brand, which serves food from South East Asia, has two further restaurants in Manchester and sites in London, Bristol and Reading.
While renovation is underway, Tampopo will operate from a pop-up restaurant in Exchange Square.
