Get your lockdown foodie fix from some of Manchester’s best restaurants (and all just a stone’s throw from Broadside!)

The end of lockdown is now in sight, and we’re all counting down the days until we can reunite properly with family and friends, get back to normal and visit our favourite restaurants, bars and shops.

The New Cross/Ancoats/Northern Quarter area is home to some of the best food and drink establishments in the whole of Manchester, boasting a diverse selection of independent eateries serving up delicious world-class dishes – and boy how we’ve missed them!

Whether you’re in the mood for a first-rate fry up, a perfect bowl of pasta, or a scrummy Sunday roast, this corner of Manchester has got something for you, and all within walking distance of Broadside – perfectly placed in the heart of it all.

Lucky for us, these fabulous foodie spots, like many other local businesses, have adapted to lockdown life by operating online takeaway and delivery services to homes across the city.

We’ve rounded-up a list of some of our favourite local restaurants still serving delicious food to the hungry mouths of Manchester, so take a look and put your order in…

Koffee Pot

Koffee Pot is a Mancunian institution, serving up hearty breakfasts and other wholesome favourites at its quirky, laid-back home in the Northern Quarter, just a 7-minute walk from Broadside. During lockdown they’re offering DIY ‘Lockdown Kits’ which include all of the food and raw ingredients you need to make some Koffee Pot classics yourself. Choose from a meat, vegetarian or vegan full English breakfast kit for £20. The meat kit contains bacon, sausages, black and white pudding, eggs, potato cakes, beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, bread and butter – enough for 2/3 hungry people! You can also get your hands on a Burger Kit, Eggs Benedict Kit or a Pancake Kit, as well a selection of ‘Lockdown booze’ including a bottle of fizz or a whole litre of Bloody Mary for just £7.50. The guys are delivering to the whole of Greater Manchester, with deliveries taking place every Friday between the hours of 10am–7pm. Head over to the website and place your order before 3pm on Thursdays: www.thekoffeepot.co.uk @thekoffeepot

Rudy’s Pizza

A firm favourite here at Broadside, (and for anyone looking for an authentic slice of Napoli) Rudy’s is THE place to get your pizza fix. This independent, neighbourhood

pizzeria is nestled in the heart of Ancoats, just a 5-minute-walk from Broadside, with another site over on Peter Street and restaurants now in Leeds, Liverpool and Birmingham. They follow the traditions and artistry of pizza from Naples – the birthplace of pizza FYI – using simple ingredients and a wood fired oven to create soft, doughy pizzas that get mouths watering across Manchester and beyond. During lockdown you can enjoy Rudy’s at home by ordering through Deliveroo for delivery or collection. You can also pop down to the pizzeria to pick up one of their twice baked, cook at home pizzas. Follow the instructions and you’ll get a piping hot pizza with a delicious crispy cornichon (that’s the crust). We recommend the Portobello, topped with San Marzano tomatoes, fior di latte, mushrooms, basil, oregano, sea salt and garlic oil, and it’s a bargain at just £6.50 – bellisima! www.rudyspizza.co.uk @wearerudyspizza

Sushi Marvel

Serious sushi lovers rejoice. The sensational Japanese deli and sushi bar Sushi Marvel has recently opened its doors on Oldham Road, just opposite Broadside. Their menu boasts a range of hot and cold authentic Japanese dishes, with gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options too. We love their Salmon Ikura Don, a hearty dish of raw salmon, avocado, pickled ginger, wasabi and mustard dressing on a bed of sushi rice (which means, ‘seasoned rice’) topped with flavoursome nori. If you’re stuck for choice, try one of their Deli Sushi Platters – a mix of delicious favourites from the menu ranging from 20 to 29 pieces! During lockdown you can pre-order your meal through the Sushi Marvel social channels for collection or delivery. They’re operating between their Ancoats and Chorlton sites on alternate weekends (back in Ancoats 12-14th June) so make sure you don’t miss out. www.sushimarvel.co.uk @sushi_marvel

Sugo Pasta Kitchen

Sugo is the region’s first southern Italian pasta kitchen. Originally opened in Altrincham, the pasta specialists now also have a home in the heart of Ancoats, just a 3-minute-walk from Broadside. So, when you’re full to bursting with the tastiest pasta, sourdough and vino, you won’t have far to roll yourself home! The team at Sugo is passionate about bringing authentic Italian cuisine to the people of Greater Manchester, and that’s exactly what they’re doing during lockdown. Between 4-9:30pm from Tuesday–Sunday you can order through Deliveroo for collection or delivery. Their House Sugo is stuff of legends – orecchiette pasta with slow cooked beef shin, pork shoulder and nduja ragu served with parmesan. A rich and indulgent dish best eaten with a spoon! Enjoy it alongside one of their epic Arancino filled with basil pesto and mozzarella and roasted red pepper puree. www.sugopastakitchen.co.uk @sugopastakitchen

Elnecot

You’ll find Elnecot tucked away in the corner of Cutting Room Square – less than a 5-minute-walk from Broadside. This chic Ancoats eatery boasts an exotic array of dishes, and there’s nothing better than tucking in to a big selection of their delectable small plates (and a cocktail or two) with friends. Until you can head their yourself, you can still enjoy the Elnecot experience from home from Friday-Sunday every weekend during lockdown. They’re offering an extensive takeaway menu which

includes a Manchester picnic mezze board for 2 with assorted meats, cheeses, breads and chutneys for just £12, or if you’re in the mood for something spicy, try the Butter Chicken or Mung Bean Curry served up with rice, Bombay potatoes and naan bread. Our favourite dish? It’s got to be the Sunday Roast! That’s right, you can get your hands on a beef, chicken, pork or nut roast with all the trimmings (including the best Yorkshire and vegan gravy we’ve ever had!) When you’ve made your choice (it might take a while!) just place your order through Whatsapp and you’ll be sent a pick-up time to collect your meal. Head over to the website to view the menu and find out more: www.elnecot.com @elnecot

This is by no means a definitive list. We’re thrilled to see businesses all over Ancoats and the Northern Quarter adapting to the current situation and thriving, and we’re proud that our neighbours and local communities are supporting them through it.

We can’t wait to visit all of these places and more once the lockdown restrictions begin to lift, but until then, we’ll take a couple of pizzas, a veggie fry-up, a full Sunday roast (extra gravy) a sushi platter and a big bowl of piping hot pasta to go please!

Now, what to have for desert?…
