tradition," said Burton Heiss, CEO of Nando's PERi-PERi. "It's all about being good neighbors, and Nando's looks forward to becoming an integral part of the South Side."
Nationwide, Nando's has donated more than $200,000 to schools and local non-profit organizations, all through opening-day sales.
Every Nando's is painstakingly designed

reflect its sunny African-Portuguese heritage. With thousands of pieces
of original works of art that are a constant reminder of where the
restaurant came from, Nando's has become the largest collector of South
African contemporary art in the world. Nando's new Hyde Park restaurant
features one-of-a-kind South African artwork, too, including a
corrugated-metal mural that was hand-painted in Hyde Park by South African street artist Kilmany-Jo Liversage.
