Fancy finding a new fave now the ‘Eat Out To Help Out’ scheme is over? Our city isn’t short of new openings, and when they’re as good as these – how could we possibly resist? From hearty comfort food to simple, classic faves – here are the best new restaurants to try out in Manchester this month.
1. 202 Kitchen
The freshest spot in town, 202 Kitchen opened its doors just last month – and it’s an Instagram paradise. Serving up ‘trapbox’ style grub including burgers, ribs, chicken and more, this place will be perfect for filling tums with hearty grub come the colder months. 202 Kitchen is open now and can be found at 44 Bridge Street, Manchester, M3 3BT.
2. Delhi House Cafe
Joining the likes of Döner Haus, Vapianos and Mowgli at the Corn Exchange, Dehli House Cafe opened its doors in August – serving contemporary Indian dishes such as flavourful curries, tandoori meats and fish, Indian-infused breakfast items and so much more. Dehli House Cafe, Unit 10, Corn Exchange, Manchester, M4 3TR.
3. Corner Slice MCR
Manchester’s first Detroit-style pizzeria is officially open, and it looks bloody delicious. Taking the famous deep pan-style pizza and smothering it in authentic Italian toppings and ingredients, the fresh new restaurant is high up on our list of new recommendations – with those in the know getting slices in before the spot sells out for the day. Corner Slice MCR, 141 Lord Lane
4. Piazza MCR
Piazza MCR is the newest venture by the Ciaooo MCR team – delving deeper into Italian grub with a grab and go lunch concept. Leaving the pizza to their lovely little Ancoats spot, the new Arndale Market stall serves a variety of fresh pasta with different toppings – and yes, burrata is on the menu. Check it out on your next lunch break… Piazza MCR, Arndale Market, 49 High St, Manchester, M4 3AH.
5. Voodoo Rays
Heading up North from London, Voodoo Rays is Escape to Freight Island’s resident pizzeria – offering NYC-style pizza for guests to chow down on at the casual drinking and entertainment space. Pizzas are sold as the whole 22″ or by the slice… But honestly, who’d even bother with just one slice? Voodoo Rays, Escape to Freight Island, Baring St, Manchester, M1 2PZ.
6. Vertigo Plant Based Eatery
Following success in the city centre, Vertigo Plant Based Eatery has put down roots in MediaCityUK, too – opening their biggest restaurant yet with a wonderful outdoor terrace.
