San Carlo Group, the new owners of 47 King Street West, aren’t wasting any time putting their new restaurant to good use. They are teaming up with top local chef Robert Owen Brown to launch FEAST, a winter pop-up restaurant and bar at the recently-acquired venue.
FEAST will evoke the beautiful winter forest and woodlands of England. It will offer sophisticated comfort food and seasonal, indulgent cocktails, wines and beers beneath a canopy of branches, evergreens and enchanting lights. A full beer and wine list will also be available.
Festooned with cosy blankets and lit by lanterns and twinkling lights, FEAST will be the perfect place to escape and indulge in winter’s finest heart-warming produce, hot chocolate cocktails, mulled cider and a unique woodland and winter inspired cocktail list created by Bark Manchester.
Robert has been hailed as a champion of the north – someone who combines great technique with a deep understanding of gutsy cooking. Inspired by great British and local winter produce, his menu will include hearty seasonal dishes including roasts, pies, and stews. In other words, perfect winter comfort food.
“We’re excited to offer something completely different with FEAST,” says Marcello Distefano of San Carlo Group. “We’re fans of Rob Owen Brown and collaborating with him has been a great experience, it’s good to have some fun with a concept and we share the same passion for great food and produce. We hope everyone will come down and enjoy getting into the festive mood with us. What happens post FEAST? Well, we’re working on that right now and look forward to revealing all nearer the time.”
“FEAST is a meeting of minds and passions,” said Robert. “It’s great working with an operator at the top of their game and one that cares about provenance as much as I do.”
This sounds like a winning combination to us. So if you like the sound of dishes like hand dived scallops, smooth celeriac mash and crispy Bury black pudding; rich claret braised Forest of Dean wild boar, Chorlton chorizo & horseradish dumplings; and Baked Alaska with home-made Christmas pudding ice cream and butterscotch sauce, this is definitely somewhere to put on your Christmas dining shopping list.
FEAST opens for lunch on Saturday, 12 November and will be open Monday to Friday 8am til late (Saturday and Sunday 9am til late) throughout the winter season until early January.
