Palate bar and restaurant is a new project from the team behind the Parlour and the Castle. Located between Tiny’s Tipple and Chorlton Off Licence on Wilbraham Road, Palate is the group’s second venue in Chorlton. Taking the multi-award-winning Parlour on Beech Road as a marker, expect something extremely special. Hand-sourced after extensive testing missions by owners Jonny Booth and Jamie Langrish, you’ll be able to enjoy sharing platters of charcuterie from Borough Market favourites Cannon and Cannon, British farm cheeses from Neals Yard Dairy as well as a hot menu including mussels, pigs cheeks, English white onion soup, raclette, plus sandwiches worthy of being your main meal. Filings will include the likes of ricotta, watercress, fig and apple mayo and salt beef with sauerkraut gherkin and mustard. There will be salads to enjoy too along the lines of pear, chicory, walnut and blue cheese or bresaola with rocket, artichokes and parmesan. There will be three draught beers to choose from by the Camden Brewery, Prosecco on tap, Orchard Pigs ciders and a 60 bottle winelist including sparkling British Nyetimber instead of Champagne. All furniture is hand-built from repurposed pallet wood and light fittings are made from recycled cardboard. Coffee is roasted locally. The Castle group’s other bars and restaurants include The Parlour in Chorlton, Gullivers, The Castle Hotel, The Eagle Inn (Salford) and the Baker’s Vaults (Stockport).
