Aumbry’s Mary-Ellen Mctague Launches Northern Quarter Pop-Up

Aumbry pops up in the city centre (sort of)...

Mrs Aumbry, or Mary-Ellen McTague, as she’s also known, is bringing a pop-up operation to the city centre.

4244 Edge St will open in Manchester’s bohemian Northern QuarterT on 23rd September, offering 50 covers and a five course taster menu – there a sample here.

The PR says the pop-up ‘will feel familiar to followers of Aumbry – relaxed, casual and intimate.’

It goes on. ‘The taster menu will comprise of locally sourced, deceptively simple dishes from slow cooked Cumbrian beef to signature favourites grapefruit posset and sautéed mushrooms and snails. Bespoke wine and in house tea pairings will make for a truly unique, contemporary dining experience.’

Mary-Ellen wants to bring ‘more fine dining in the heart of the city without pretention’. And that sounds fair enough.

The joint venture with Sparklestreet will see Mary-Ellen’s first move into the city centre with 4244 undertaking an initial 5 week stay in its Northern Quarter location – or ‘the bit at the back of Teacup, opposite Common’ as it’s also called.

Bookings will be taken via the website from 1st September. Form a queue.

Over in Prestwich, Aumbry will close on 30th August for refurbishments and is due to re-open before Christmas, as soon as the blood, sweat and swear words are sandblasted off the work surfaces.
