1761
Foodinate With 1761 & Lily's Bar

1761 & Lily’s Bar have teamed up Foodinate to fight food poverty. Next week they launch a brand new initiative in the restaurant, making a meal donation to partner charity The Mustard Tree. 

1761 will donate a dish for every one sold, so you can dine in harmony, knowing that eating from their menu, you're also helping to feed a Mancunian in need.


Mana-chester
Chef Simon Martin, who previously worked at Copenhagen’s Noma as part of their Mexican pop-up, along with being part of the planning in v2 of said culinary super-heavyweight, is set to launch his own slice of Scandi in Ancoats, named Mana.  The exact location is still a mystery, but what we can confirm is that the restaurant will be open an industry friendly 4 days a week, for dinner service only, and will seat between 30 and 35 covers.  There will be a few Noma-nods via a fermentation facility, along with an open kitchen, and heavy interaction between the Chefs and diners, something which for us, makes the whole Noma experience tick.   2018 is shaping up very nicely for Manchester’s dining scene.

Cibo
Don Cibo

Following the collaboration between city centre Italian big hitter Don Giovanni and the now defunct Per Tutti on Liverpool Road, said venture has now become 'Cibo'; the Italian word for food, so straight to the point on what it's all about. 

Owner Adam Karim's vision is of traditional Italian classics, with Cibo's individual spin on things, along with a menu to suit all tastes and price ranges. There is also a well-stocked bar, an accomplished cocktail list, and buckets of Prosecco choice, so Cibo is a great place to enjoy a drink too, and looks set to tempt some custom from the nearby Spinningfields and Castlefield.  

They are currently offering 30% off food for the remainder of February, so now's the ideal time to check it out for yourself.  Remember to mention that you saw the deal with Restaurants of Manchester when booking!


Tast-y Opening Confirmed

Earlier this year we reported that Tast Cuina Catalana would be taking over the former Suri until on King Street,  we now now this authentic celebration of Catalan food and wine will launch in June Tast Cuina Catalana, roughly translates as ‘Taste from the Catalan Kitchen.’ ‘Tast’ will bring worldwide interest to the growing links between Manchester and Catalonia, bringing the talent of multi-Michelin star chef Paco Perez.

Paco is the renowned international patron-chef of two Michelin 2* restaurants - Miramar, in Llançà,  (Girona) and Enoteca at the Arts Hotel in Barcelona, a city where he has six restaurants in all. He is also behind the Michelin 1* Restaurant Cinc at the Hotel Das Stue in Berlin.

Pep Guardiola, Txiki Begiristain, Ferran Soriano are among the investors in the restaurant. Acting in a personal capacity, the investors have teamed up with the independent Fazenda group, whose directors’ passion for South American cuisine has made their award-winning ‘rodizio’ grilled meat restaurants in Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester (and recent Edinburgh opening) a great popular success.

Cafe Football National Football Museum

#Prolificpartnerships

Cafe Football have teamed up with SEVEN BRO7HERS brewery to reignite past prolific partnerships, with their own world class beer and burger pairing, available throughout March at both Cafe Football National Football Museum & Cafe Football Old Trafford sites.

The offer sees Cafe Football’s signature Hometeam burger come together with SEVEN BRO7HERS‘ bottled EPA. The burger takes dry aged beef, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, burger sauce and onion relish, complete with fries and a gherkin.

The SEVEN BRO7HERS beer is a classic English Pale Ale with a toasted malt base – floral and green tea undertones.

Cafe Football National Football Museum

The Welsh Burger

To celebrate Ryan Giggs‘new appointment as Wales manager, Cafe Football National Football Museum & Cafe Football Old Trafford are unleashing the red dragon on the menu for a limited time – the Welsh Burger.

The burger – named after the Welsh Wizard himself – has a beetroot infused brioche bun, giving it a distinguishable hue to match Wales‘ traditional all-red home kit. The Welsh Burger consists of Welsh lamb and Harrisa, smoked chilli creme fraiche, pickled cucumber, rocket and feta cheese.


Gee….. no?

Individual Restaurants, the company behind the Gino D'Acampo chain of restaurants, is eyeing up opening 5 more venues across the country before the end of 2018.  Whilst this may ordinarily feel quite natural, the current pressure on high street Italians especially, is massive.  A bold venture indeed.


Spreading Its Tentacles

We are led to believe that the currently Southern-focused mini Thai chain; Giggling Squid is eyeing up potential venues in Manchester, as part of a pending program of expansion which would see the nationwide portfolio grow to 30 branches by 2019.  Watch this space.


Porky Pig

Yorkshire pudding wraps have been a bit of a thing now, and a permanent vendor to cater for this new trend is taking root in the city.  The Porky Pig Café and Carvery is set to launch in March on Booth Street.


 
Monday 19th February 2018
Chorlton Cheese
Brewski; the Chorlton poutine purveyors, are on the cusp of branching out to the city centre, in a venture which will broadly mirror their 'burbs outfit, specialising in poutine (chips, cheese and gravy) and raclette (melted cheese), amongst other dairy delights.  Let's be honest, anything with cheese on tastes better.  The host site is just off Mosley St, in the former 1847 veggie restaurant unit.

Grafene

A New Chef Brings A Taste Of Things To Come At Grafene

This month sees the announcement of a new head chef on the north-west restaurant scene, as Ben Mounsey takes the culinary helm at one of Manchester’s leading restaurants and cocktail bars; Grafene

Fast on the heels of the move comes the launch of his new menu this week, which offers Ben’s interpretation of fine, contemporary British food.  To run alongside this, a cocktail collection featuring newly-crafted drinks has been introduced.

The menu is Ben’s reflection of modern British life.  Showing British eccentricity with an often-eclectic combination of ingredients, dishes on his menu include cleverly reconstructed classics and plates to challenge a diner’s perception of familiar foods. 

Infused with his humour, sense of fun and inspiration from his region, Ben promises a menu that “avoids the obvious, with surprises throughout. The result is a celebration of flavour; with a meticulous attention to detail and presented with purposeful simplicity.”  [more info]

Dan Dohety - Second Floor Brasserie

Back by popular demand, Harvey Nichols is delighted to announce the celebrated chef and author Dan Doherty will be returning to Harvey Nichols in March to host a series of supper clubs across the UK.

The collaboration will see Doherty take his unique supper club “Sprout” nationwide; coming to Manchester on Friday 9 March with an additional brunch club in Manchester on Saturday 10 March.

“Sprout” is a special dining experience that hero’s seasonal ingredients, reflected in both the menu and the space.  [more info]

Portland Problems

Portland St based Indian restaurant Swadesh is in hot water following non payment of fines, resulting from the employment of illegal workers last year, and also a similar incident back in 2016. If action is enforced following pending review, the business could see its alcohol licence removed, which clearly, would make turning a profit very difficult.


Pho
Vietnamese New Year

Chinese New Year is just around the corner and that marks the first day of the Lunar New Year which is honoured by many Asian countries including Vietnam (as well as China, of course).

To celebrate Vietnamese New Year Pho are going to be giving out special red envelopes at random in all of their restaurants with gifts inside including complimentary meals, free bowls of pho for next time, and some lucky people will even get their hands on their mythical VIP card. [more info]

Prezzo Paying The Price?
Fresh after the news that Jamie's Italian and Byron are to close a series of branches, high street stalwart Prezzo are also facing a 'financial restructure' with some of its 262 nationwide branches rumoured to close.  Fuelled by rising labour costs, Brexit-inflated produce supply price increases and the related squeeze on consumer spending, the heavily saturated casual dining market in Manchester is set for a very tough year ahead, based on early indications.
