Another new restaurant is opening in Manchester shortly. So what, you’re probably saying. A new restaurant opens in Manchester nearly every week. But we think this one looks a bit special.

Anglo‐French brasserie Randall & Aubin is opening on Bridge Street early next month. It’s the first one in the country outside London. The one in Soho has been going for around 20 years and it’s a bit of an institution.

Their specialities are fresh seafood, especially oysters, but they’ll be serving rotisserie chicken and other brasserie classics too. Think French onion soup, moules marinere, steak frites and lobster.

When they say fresh, they mean fresh. And they’re promising they’ll be serving the best meat in Manchester.

The decor is tile and marble with lots of benches and high stools.

So what brings them to Manchester?

“The positivity and entrepreneurial energy of the city, the warm, welcoming community, the culinary interest towards food and the enthusiasm for a great night out attracts,” say co‐founders renowned chef Ed Baines and businessman Jamie Poulton.

Flattery will get you everywhere, gents.

We can’t guarantee it’s any good. It’s due to open early next month so we’ll just have to wait and see.

But let’s put it this way. If it’s anything like the London restaurant, you might want to start forming an orderly queue now.
