An Authentic Sicilian Restaurant Is Opening In The Northern Quarter

It’s the first and only Sicilian restaurant in Manchester city centre.

Formerly known as William Sicilian Street Food, the cosy spot is rebranding as Sicilian NQ this week, leaving behind its Hilton Street home for a new, bigger spot on Turner Street as a neighbourhood bistro and bar.

Officially launching this Thursday night, guests can celebrate the launch with free prosecco, arancini and samples from the menu for one night only, with the bistro now taking bookings for Friday 6th March and onwards. Owner, Carmen, has said of the new era for the restaurant:

“There’s not really anyone else doing Sicilian street food in the city, and the new place is a huge upgrade on the previous premises. We’ll not be changing our concept, one based on tradition and authenticity of Sicilian food and culture, and are excited to now be able to offer fantastic imported Sicilian wine, as well as an extensive cocktail menu, beers and ales. We have some new, and very talented additions to our team to bring the new venture to life.”

The new food spot is set to bring a taste of sunny Sicily to rainy Manchester, with a brand new menu, Sicilian wines, cocktails and beers. Expect authentic ingredients, a welcoming, Italian vibe and traditional dishes that William Sicilian Street Food fans already know and love, such as pasta, cannoli, cipollini and tiramisu.
