Live-fire Thai cooking, brand new beer gardens and mouthwatering bagels—there’s plenty of newness to get stuck into on the food and drink front this month in Manchester.

Kitten brings Japanese fine dining to Manchester

Promising handcrafted sushi and high-end cuisine served in one of the most ‘visually striking’ settings in the entire city, refined Japanese restaurant KITTEN opens amid the sparkling towers of Deansgate Square on Fri 17 Jun. Featuring a central sushi station with front row seats, an innovatively curated cocktail menu and chefs with pedigrees listing Ivy Asia and Peter Street Kitchen, KITTEN is set to be the area’s flagship fine-dining establishment.

PRIMO Bagel takes over SEESAW

From Wed 15 Jun onwards, you’ll be able to get your hands on Primo’s ludicrously delicious bagel creations from SEESAW coworking space, as the team take up residency over in the venue’s rotating kitchen. If anyone’s had the joy of grabbing their goods over at Cloudwater’s taproom these past few months, you’ll need little convincing that it’s well worth paying a visit.

Track unveil their brand new beer garden

Track’s taproom down by Piccadilly was already one of our favourite places to grab a pint, now they’ve added a lovely-looking new beer garden you’ll have to pry us away from the place this summer. Sonoma straight from the source, factor 50 smeared on, what a time to be alive.

Bird of Prey bringing 'Manchester's hottest wings'

The latest addition to the flourishing Circle Square space just off Oxford Road, Bird of Prey promises big things on the fried chicken front. Along with what they claim will be Manchester’s hottest wings, guests can indulge in other fried comforts, vegan alternatives and insane-looking milkshakes to wash it all down.

Thai live-fire barbecue from Neon Tiger

An incredibly exciting newcomer to Bridge Street, Neon Tiger employs the Baan Yang (Thai for Grill House) method of cooking, to create a North-East Thailand-inspired menu crafted for sharing. The grape experts from our beloved Ad-Hoc wines have also gotten in on the action, helping shape a natural wine menu that complements each dish perfectly.

Maray team up with Track ahead of Manchester arrival

Ever since it was first confirmed Maray would indeed be heading our way, we’ve been counting down the days until their imminent opening this month. To mark the occasion, they’ve teamed up with Track tp create a special beer, Maray PA. Described as ‘Sunshine caught in a can’, it’ll be available on draft in the restaurant when they open this summer as well as canned and stocked in local bottle shops like Ad Hoc, General Stores, Epicurean and Beermoth.

Bask is bringing beats and booze to Stockport

Open now and already earning some serious plaudits, a new speakeasy-style bar with live music and DJs, alongside a stellar cocktail list and properly good pints has opened up in Stockport. Well worth the short journey out of town.
