Bottomless pizza and booze, I repeat, bottomless pizza and booze

The 22″ pies and slices legends Nell’s are set to get even more legendary with the launch of their bottomless pizza and booze offer.

Nell’s New York style pizzas have earned them a handsome reputation at their pop-up residencies in the NQ’s Common and Chorlton’s The Beagle so, of course, excitement surrounding their new restaurant at the city centre garden neighbourhood Kampus has been rife.

The new restaurant will cater for groups of all sizes and will feature a ‘Slice Bar’ where customers can pop in for a quick slice throughout the day and the evening.

All of the familiar Nell’s classics will be on the menu too, including their best selling Original Cheese, Do You ‘Roni Honey? & Vegan Deluxe.

The new restaurant will also feature The Snug, a private and, you guessed it, snug area where you and your pals can get comfortable with pizza and cocktails – perfect for birthdays, special occasions, or just for those much-needed after work drinks. 

But perhaps most excitingly of all is their new Sunday offering – bottomless pizza and booze. It doesn’t get much better than that, does it?

The Sunday Pizza Social will give guests the opportunity to indulge on both the pizza menu and the cocktail list, which includes three brand new signature cocktails; Nell’s Sbagliato, Nell’s Spritz, and Nell’s Sour – though the finer details surrounding the bottomless deal are yet to be confirmed.

Speaking of the new venture, founder Jonny Heyes said: “We decided to make a change from our original concept for Kampus. It wasn’t an easy decision, but we felt like so much had changed since we began this project at Kampus and Cornerstone started to feel like a ‘pre-COVID’ idea, which of course it was.

“Kampus had been intended as the first ever Nell’s but in fact we’re already now operating at two sites – so much of our focus over the last year has been on Nell’s so we thought it didn’t make sense to have it playing second fiddle to Cornerstone.

“Now felt like the right time for Nell’s to step out of the shadows and have a place of her own.”

Nell’s at Kampus will be opening to the public on Friday, November 5th. Make sure to follow the official Instagram page for news and updates, and head over to their website for bookings.

Spinningfields is set to gain an exciting new addition in the form of a Thai restaurant specialising in ‘Thai tapas’ and cocktails.

Giggling Squid initially started life in the basement of a tiny cottage in Brighton back in 2002 with the aim to serve ‘simple, rustic, fresh Thai food’ in a selection of small plates made for sharing.

The restaurant’s owner Pranee grew up on the banks of the Mekong River, visiting the local markets everyday with her mother at 5am, where she’d see ‘huge fish splashing in water tubs, transparent shrimps, an endless variety of herbs and vegetables’.

Following its opening, Giggling Squid has experienced massive success and has since opened over forty restaurants in various locations across the country.

And now, in its first proper venture up North, Giggling Squid will be coming to Manchester, where it will take over a vacant venue on Hardman Square, opposite The Ivy.

There will be a number of tasty items up for grabs on its Manchester menu, including starters made for sharing like Phuket Mussels, Samui Zingy Prawns, Salt & Pepper Squid and Chicken Satay.

There will also be a menu dedicated to the humble Pad Thai as well as the standard mains menu, which will be split into three categories; Stir Fry, From the Water and From the Land.

Also on the menu will be a huge range of unique cocktails, many of them with a distinctive Thai twist. Highlights include the Thai-spresso Martini with coconut coffee liqueur and toasted coconut flakes, and the Me Time Margarita made with muddled ginger and lemongrass and a curry-salt rim.

Giggling Squid’s Manchester site is set to open at some point in the new year, so make sure to follow them on Instagram for news and updates.

NEW OPENING: A dedicated chicken wing restaurant has launched in Manchester

There’s a new chicken wing spot in town…

Manchester's Finest Group

Manchester’s favourite urban village Hatch has gained an exciting new addition in the form of chicken wing restaurant Wing Dash.

Wing Dash comes courtesy of takeaway kings Burgerism, whose popularity skyrocketed during the 2020 lockdowns.

Operating from their dark kitchen in Salford, Burgerism became well known and loved for their (you guessed it) burgers, which have even been named as ‘the best burgers in Manchester’ by Mana’s Michelin-starred Head Chef, Simon Martin.

So, of course, we can expect some seriously good things from their latest venture, which takes a primary focus on the humble chicken wing.

Their latest venture sees their iconic Burgerism formula in the form of chicken wings with six options up for grabs; each wing, made from 100% British chicken, is brined for twenty-four-hours to ensure maximum flavour and tenderness.

They’re then coated in the special Burgerism signature coating and deep-fried, before being seasoned with one of six unique flavours including Piri-Piri, Buffalo, Atomic, BBQGarlic Parm and Lemon Pepper.

And for those wanting a meat-free alternative (or, like me, for those who just really love a bit of cauliflower), Wing Dash are also serving up their delicious Cauliflower Bites, which are sourced from a family-run farm in Preston available to order in any of the six seasonings. 

Of course, there are also fries to be ordered alongside your wing haul, which are prepped fresh every day and topped with a generous sprinkle of chicken salt. 

Wing Dash is open now at Hatch, but can also be ordered for delivery via Uber Eats and Deliveroo. Head over to the Wing Dash Instagram page for news and updates.
