What do a former United player and Manchester's rooftop restaurant scene have in common? A gorgeous Japanese-Peruvian palace by the name of Chotto Matte, the first of its UK ventures outside London. Taking the prime spot in Gary Neville's St Michael's development on Jackson Row, the venue will be the crowning glory of his project. How can we be so sure? Well, just take a look at the whopping 20,000 square foot worth of sky-high space.
The interiors aren't skimping either, set to feature the eatery's usual design elements; think sushi torched at your tableside, sultry lava stone, robata grills and graffiti artwork. Topping it off is a roster of live entertainment and late-night DJs for that multi-sensory Chotto Matte dining experience.
As for the Nikkei cuisine? Although the menu isn't yet confirmed, you can expect the usual mix of seabass ceviche, tostadas and Amazonian BBQ salmon, alongside a choice of California rolls or Wagyu. If that wasn't enough already, the bar usually serves a list of sake with the likes of lychee picantes. Yes please.
