Following the (personally victimising) closure of the Corn Exchange’s Wahaca (RIP), London’s The Real Greek has cast its eyes on the prime city centre location, opening its first-ever Manchester restaurant this December 9th.
Adding some much-appreciated Greek representation to a city that, quite frankly, is pretty lacking of the cuisine – with the exception of Rozafa and Dimitri’s, of course – The Real Greek will bring its extensive menu of traditional dishes to the city, with their Souvlaki wraps (which are similar to gyros), in particular, stealing the show.
Following success in locations such as London, Bournemouth, Bristol, Norwich and Southampton, the Manchester restaurant will mark The Real Greek’s 22nd venue, with big plans to continue expanding both The Real Greek and sister restaurant, Franco Manco, which already has a presence here in Manchester.
Nabil Mankarious, Managing Director at The Real Greek, comments: “It is an honour to open our 22nd restaurant and our first site in the North. Manchester is a popular and buzzing city with a trendy food and drink scene, so we’re delighted to now have a presence, offering our authentic Greek food to a new clientele.
“We’ve been very fortunate to continue to thrive, with a sustained demand for our business, and being able to continue to open more sites across the country”.
To celebrate the launch, guests will be able to enjoy 50% off main dishes from Thursday 9th December until Sunday 12th December 2021, meaning diners will be able to try out their souvlaki, skewers and cold meze for less.
