NEW: London-based Lebanese restaurant Comptoir Libanais to open in Manchester

Comptoir Libanais set to open in Spinningfields...

Spinningfields… It just keeps getting better. More interesting and exciting stuff coming to Manchester’s Spinningfields district.

‘…healthy, light and you can
enjoy it every day…’

It’s looking like yet another trendy London restaurant is heading up north to the ‘2nd City’. Lebanese restaurant group, Comptoir Libanais, are close to signing a deal on the former Brooks Brothers unit in Spinningfields. The group also runs a slew up incredibly successful concepts in London such as; Levant, Kenza, Pasha along with eight other Comptoir Libanais sites.

Owner, Tony Kitous, opened the first Comptoir in 2008 and has been credited with ‘putting the glamour into Middle Eastern cuisine’. He has introduced London to fresh, healthy, honest and affordable food and now it’s (hopefully) Manchester’s turn.

Stop by early doors for unique Lebanese breakfasts including dishes like organic yoghurt topped with pomegranate and orange blossom water or a house favourite; halloumi cheese, crispy onion and tomato tortillas. The restaurant also serves an incredible lunch and dinner with beautifully presented, colourful dishes including hot and cold mezzo, grills, salads and wraps.
