Headed up by Andrew Green, the former executive chef of the five-star Lowry Hotel the restaurant will be called Mamucium, and will comprise a bar, a 120-cover restaurant and a 70-cover café.
Green has previously held executive chef roles at the Radisson Blu and Crowne Plaza hotels in Manchester airport, but gained significant recognition in the 2018 Michelin Guide for The Lowry’s River Room Restaurant.
His signature style of cuisine is simple and classic, using local and seasonal produce.
His menu at Mamucium is expected to be similar in style, offering “classic, locally sourced food with a Northern spin.
Overseen by 3DReid architects, interiors will comprise art deco influences, a central curved bar, and an open kitchen.
The restaurant, named after the Roman fort that was the birthplace of Manchester will sit alongside the newly-built Hotel Indigo.
“I’m really excited about the opening of Mamucium and the new opportunities it will bring,” says Green.
“I am looking forward to the challenges ahead and looking forward to adding another exciting and premium dining destination to the Manchester scene.”
Manchester is set for a spate of exciting autumn openings, including Portuguese restaurant Canto, which the team behind award-winning Spanish restaurant will open in the Ancoats district of the city.
