Nordie, 1044 Stockport Rd, Manchester, M19 3WX – Visit Now
Nordie is a highly-regarded bar based in the heart of Levenshulme, South Manchester, serving up a range of quality drinks and cocktails (I tried a cucumber-based cocktail there at the start of the year and I haven’t stopped daydreaming about it since). Now they’re branching out into food and reports are looking very positive indeed. Here, in their own words, is what to expect:
“From our opening in March 2019, we have been taking the time to get to know the locals to whom we’ve been serving up our favourite beers, natural wines, cocktails and homemade bakes. Somewhere along the way, we realised we needed more space to grow, so we expanded into an unused part of the building and added a bigger kitchen and additional seating.
“We’ve since been offering a full breakfast and brunch menu, and more recently an evening menu curated by Heath Linn (formerly of Roots in York, The Black Swan in Oldstead, Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in Great Milton & Saint Crispin in Melbourne).
“We’ve been looking forward to welcoming diners in the evening for a long time, so it’s exciting to finally share what we’ve been working on. The dishes are carefully thought out and ever-changing to follow the seasons – best enjoyed when shared with friends or family.
“Some of our most recent dishes include: Chicken, black garlic puree, hen of the woods, salsify, hispi cabbage; Jerusalem artichoke, onion puree, shimeji; Salt-baked beetroot, linseed, soured cream, dill, horseradish; Cavatelli, smoked ham, winter greens; Vadouvan spiced lentils, heritage carrot, brown butter curd; Salt baked celeriac, rhubarb, celery, smoked whey sauce.”
Breakfast and lunch service is Friday-Sunday 10am-3pm. Evening menu service is Thursday-Saturday 5-9pm. Nordie operates a walk-in service only with bookings available in the future.
