Ancoats natural wine bar and restaurant, Erst, has been recognised as one of the best dining spots in the country by The Good Food Guide.
The popular spot, which specialises in seasonal small plates designed for sharing, made it into the prestigious Platinum List of 18 restaurants from across the UK.
Each inclusion was chosen for their remarkable resilience, thriving in the face of the shifting realities of dining out during the pandemic.
“Every one of the restaurants on this list is a shining example of the resilience and sheer talent to be found in the UK,” said the Guide’s editor Elizabeth Carter.
“It may have been a tough 18 months for the hospitality industry but these restaurants were undaunted. They continued to do the two things we ask of a good restaurant – serve fabulous food, that stayed in the mind during multiple closures, and offer great hospitality.”
It’s been a stellar few months for Erst’s glowing reputation, after Jay Rayner’s rave review in September also called it ‘one of his best meals of the year’—high praise indeed.
