There’s an influx of foodie talent coming to Ancoats thanks to a swathe of new residential developments.
Sugo Pasta Kitchen, The Jane Eyre Neighbourhood Bar and The Hip Hop Chip Shop will be opening in spring and summer 2018 within Manchester Life residential developments in Ancoats.
Manchester Life is making space for a total of 15 local shops, restaurants and cafés in its first six buildings.
The Jane Eyre Neighbourhood Bar will open in spring 2018 within One Cutting Room Square, bringing a mix of continental snacks, high-quality cocktails, the finest offerings from Manchester’s local breweries, and one deck vinyl sessions for the community.
Brothers, Jonny and Joe Eyre say they’re “going to be serving simple food and drinks made using high-quality ingredients”
They add: “The cocktail menu will lead the way, and we will be serving a range of keg and bottled beers to showcase Manchester’s finest breweries. Every Sunday will bring an extra special Bloody Mary menu.”
Sugo Pasta Kitchen will open later, in Summer 2018, within Sawmill Court.
It’s Manchester’s first southern Italian pasta kitchen and builds on the success of Sugo in Altrincham.
Alex De Martiis from Sugo, says “the idea of a stripped back 60 seat southern Italian Pasta Kitchen fills us with joy”.
Meanwhile, The Hip Hop Chip Shop – which won the Best Mobile Fish and Chip Operator Award at the 2017 National Fish & Chip Awards – will be making Sawmill Court its first permanent restaurant in Summer 2018.
Jonathan “Ozzie” Oswald, said: “We’re going to create a relaxed dining experience with proper comfort food, tasty drink selection, live music, great artwork and top-notch service.”
No wonder Ancoats has been named one of the hippest places to live in Europe.
