Tucked away in the Northern Quarter is the ultimate Bottomless Brunch – complete with endless booze AND food!
The only thing better than chugging down endless Prosecco until you are full of bubbles while tucking into a Eggs Ben, or maybe a Full English, is if you can get another plate of food, and another plate and another plate…
Well, The Pen & Pencil do just that. It will set you back £40 and you can tuck into the All-Inclusive Free-Flow Brunch for THREE full hours.
There’s plenty of classic brunch dishes to choose from too, including Eggs Royale, Benedict and Florentine, alongside American Pancakes (topped with bacon and maple syrup) and the ultimate brunch dish – Steak & Eggs!
For booze, you can opt for the classic and simple Prosecco or spice it up with Bloody Mary’s, Mimosas, pints of Amstel or a changing Brunch Cocktail Special.
This ultimate Bottomless Brunch happens just once a month and gets booked up pretty far in advance – so you need to get organised to book it!
The next one is taking place on Saturday 29th August – next weekend people!!
Get booked in by emailing Pen & Pencil here – (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Manchester’s first ‘lasagne slab shack’ is opening this week
Lazy Tony’s Lasagneria is coming to town
Lasagne is the food of the gods, cheesey, creamy pasta goodness that always hits the spot.
The one thing Manchester has been missing – besides a beach – is a dedicated lasagne spot, somewhere you can grab a huge slab of the good stuff for a proper scran.
Well, not for much longer will our city be missing such a spot, as Lazy Tony’s Lasagneria is coming to Manchester this week.
Manchester’s lasagne dry spell is set to end this week with the official launch of Lazy Tony’s, the city’s first and only ‘slab shack’.
It’s set to become your new favourite place for a huge chunk of pasta, ragu and cheese, as well as freshly-baked focaccia bread, mozzarella sticks and even ‘Unofficially Officially The Best Tiramisu in the World‘.
All of the pasta is made fresh daily, and Lazy Tony uses proper Italian tomatoes – there’s even a 100% vegan option on the menu.
But how do you get your hands on one, I hear you ask?
Pre-orders will be going LIVE today, Wednesday, April 14th, ready for curbside pick up from Friday in Ancoats – Lazy Tony’s is currently operating on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
You can head on over to their Instagram here for all of the latest developments, or alternatively visit the website here.
‘The Garden of April’ has opened at San Carlo’s restaurant in Hale Barnes
If you can’t fly to Italy this summer, this is the next best thing
Italian favourite San Carlo has opened a brand new Italian garden dining experience in Hale Barns, called Il Giardinio di Aprile (The Garden of April).
Open from 12 ‘til late seven days a week, the Garden of April at San Carlo Fiorentina brings a touch of Italian magic to the UK.
As guests step into the covered, all-weather, open air dining terrace they will find themselves transported to a magical landscaped space, reminiscent of the romantic garden terrace restaurants on the Amalfi coast.
The stunning Italian garden comes complete with verdant foliage, a magnificent magnolia tree in full bloom, ornamental statues and terracotta planters full to bursting with spring flowers.
Diners, seated at elegant tables with white linens and chic table lamps, can enjoy all the usual San Carlo menu favourites.
There’ll be spectacular seafood such as Tagliolini Lobster, Spaghetti Frutti di Mari – a huge sharing pasta dish with clams, mussels, prawns, garlic and tomato and salt-baked sea bass.
There will be something for everyone with steaks, colourful salads, pasta (including gluten free options) and pizza, plus the usual cocktails, wines and fizz will be served to your table.
Patio heaters are dotted throughout the covered garden and diners are encouraged to wrap up warm as part of their alfresco experience.
San Carlo Restaurants managing director, Marcello Distefano, said: “After such a difficult year, we wanted to create a true escape for people, we want them to feel like they’ve been transported to somewhere very special, somewhere that’s out of reach to us right now.
“We hope people will love it as much as we do.”
