Peru Perdu takes over from El Camino for Whitworth Locke's second restaurant residency
NEW for November, the second resident at Manchester’s first 'permanent pop-up' The Cotton Factory is Peru Perdu, complete with a South American focus for something a little bit different and an all-day dining experience.
Peru Perdu will be part of Manchester’s dining scene for between three and six months thanks to the team at boutique hospitality consultancy Miam Miam Glou Glou. With input from Soho House New York chef David Gale, the menu will be packed with the likes of Uruguayan Wet Aged (UWA) steaks, Peruvian citrus-cured ceviche fish dishes, and a selection of plant-based small and large plates, representing flair and fresh flavours.
Manchester is crying out for an offering like this from Peru Perdu - it’s fresh and young, packed full of healthy flavours and bright colours
The Peru Perdu team will be putting their own stamp on the restaurant space with a Ceviche & Chandon counter, serving signature raw fish dishes including tuna, shrimp and sea bass paired with wines. An extensive list will feature a number of wines from Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay. For those who prefer a cocktail, the South American theme will carry across from the restaurant to The Cotton Factory bar, with a range of signature Peruvian Pisco Sours available at both.
Peru Perdu follows the Mexican-themed El Camino at The Cotton Factory, where the concept – created by The Initiative Group – is about offering exciting and ever-evolving food and drink, with an intention to showcase cuisines from around the globe. The open kitchen, at the heart of the restaurant, allows diners to watch the chefs in action from the chef’s table, while the open-plan seating area gives customers the option of booths, benches or the 16-seater private dining room. Named after the mill that houses it, the 78-cover restaurant The Cotton Factory is part of the Whitworth Locke hotel on the corner of Princess Street and Whitworth Street.
Youri Michel, director of The Initiative Group, based in France, said: “We have a great space at The Cotton Factory and it is exciting to have the opportunity to fill it with a variety of hungry young operators to create unique one-off experiences in the city. Manchester is crying out for an offering like this from Peru Perdu - it’s fresh and young, packed full of healthy flavours and bright colours. It will bring a vibrant energy to the restaurant as the winter months close in. I can’t wait to reveal it to the city.”
Food will be served weekdays from noon, opening at 10am on weekends. Dishes will be available to take away, with menus for bottomless brunch on Saturdays in addition to traditional roasts on Sunday.
