The family-owned independent opens its second venue at the city centre apartment community
Ottoman Bar & Grill, an independent Turkish restaurant with a large fanbase in Chorley, has decided to make Affinity Living Riverside its second venue’s new home after announcing the decision to expand.
Manchester was the natural next step for us in opening a second restaurant, and we’ve got big plans to take our dining experience nationwide in the next few years.
From February 2024, the Lancashire favourites will be serving authentic Turkish cuisine in the form of breakfast, lunch and dinner at their new destination venue.
All dishes will be made from scratch using high quality ingredients, with menu highlights including chicken and lamb shish kebabs, served with Turkish rice and Arabic salad. There’ll also be freshly made bread and homemade hummus, as well as rotating specials including the Lamb Butterfly.
The Instagram-friendly restaurant will reside in a 2,863 sq ft unit and combines both contemporary and traditional Turkish cuisine and decor.
Ottoman Bar & Grill will sit alongside Manchester favourite Loaf MCR’s Affinity Living Riverview site, providing residents with delicious, independent hospitality brands right on their doorstep.
Ugur Ansin, director of Ottoman Bar & Grill says: “We cannot wait to open the doors to our Manchester city centre restaurant in Affinity Living Riverside next year. We’ve built a solid reputation in Chorley for providing the best quality food alongside a second-to-none service.
“My team has invested their decades of experience as butchers and working in Turkey’s top restaurants into Ottoman - creating a truly authentic dining experience. Manchester was the natural next step for us in opening a second restaurant, and we’ve got big plans to take our dining experience nationwide in the next few years. See you very soon Manchester.”
Adam Price, CEO of Select Property, says: “We’re so excited for Ottoman Bar and Grill to join the Affinity Living family. Here at Affinity Living we pride ourselves on going above and beyond for our residents, and adding another fantastic, authentic, indie food and drink destination to our community is further proof of this. We’re happy to be supporting the Ottoman team on their expansion journey and can’t wait to see what they do next.”
