10 Exciting New Restaurant Openings.

There are so many places opening that I can hardly keep up but sadly some of these in this city will be more of the same, devoid of any inspiration or quality. Here though I count ten of my personal favourite new restaurant openings in Manchester and further afield (in the order that I think of them).
1. Baratxuri Bar.
Finally we are getting a Basque pintxos bar in the north and it's run by the lovely folks at Levanter so you know they'll be serving up proper pintxos in a Northern Town.
Where: Ramsbottom.
When: Mid September.
2. Sticky Walnut 3.
For their next restaurant following Burnt Truffle, Gary Usher will be hopefully looking closer to Manchester to open a third fantastic bistro.
Where: Chorlton, (possibly).
When: Unknown.
3. The Forest Side.
Chef Kevin Tickle from L'Enclume and Rogan&Co is a Michelin star trained chef so we know the food here will be something to look forward to.
Where: Grasmere, The Lake District.
When: Late Autumn.
4. StreetXo.
We loved StreetXo Madrid so much. It was the best meal of last year so we eagerly wait for chef David Muñoz's street-food operation to arrive in London this year.
Where: 15 Old Burlington St, London.
When: It has already been delayed several times. Hopefully before Christmas.

5 ‘Global Brasserie’*
The Mughli team and chef David Gale take over the old Superstore site so I'm expecting it to be more like The Railway Café than Mughli in Rusholme.
Where: Tib Street, Northern Quarter.
When: Later on in the year. 
* Not actual name.
6. Lunya.
Where: Barton Arcade, Deansgate, Manchester.
When: Early October.
I'm really looking forward to the arrival of both these tapas heavyweights at 6 & 7.
7. El Gato Negro
Where: King Street Manchester.
When: Autumn.
8. Wahaca. 
Yes, a chain but a fantastic one. 
Where: The Corn Exchange.
When: 10th September. (My birthday).
9. Polpo.
Another decent London chain is rumoured to be venturing north.
Where: Possibly The Corn Exchange.
When: Unknown.
10. Rudy's Neapolitan Pizza.
Proper Neapolitan Pizza in Manchester? Yes please.
Where: Ancoats.
When: Mid September.

One more place is in Chorlton and will be opening towards the end of the year. Unfortunately I've been sworn to secrecy but it is a cuisine that we don't already have and it is exciting! Watch this space.
