BEASTro Bangers and Bacon's meat-inspired feasts win a permanent home
BEASTro Leftbank, Manchester, M33AG

What they say:

Bangers and Bacon have been delighting Mancunians with their meaty street food for a while now, and after winning The Kitchens' competition to take over the Leftbank canteen, they have set up a permanent restaurant in the form of BEASTro. The meat is the same excellent quality, with bacon and sausages coming from their in-house butcher and dishes such as steak tartare and bone marrow on the menu. As well as lunch and dinner, the restaurant focuses on breakfast and brunch.

What we say:

Bangers and Bacon are opening a permanent restaurant - enough said. The team behind BEASTro have decided to go for a more formal and sophisticated vibe for the restaurant; yes, there's the same incredible quality of meat but dishes are fancier - fewer burgers, more veal marsala and ox tail risotto. Their restaurant is a hit with a brunch and breakfast menu and dinner is a three-course fare, meaning BEASTro is a stay-and-dine kind of place rather than grab and go.
