It can confidently be said that Cottonopolis is one of the most fashionable restaurants in Manchester for a couple of reasons. Its interior design, the architecture of the building and their choice of cutlery and crockery. It is great for lunch, dinner, casual drinks or the beginning of a night out. Cottonopolis is located on 16 Newton Street, Manchester M1 2AE in the Northern Quarter.
They have a Japanese inspired menu which is split into 4 sections, Ice, Fire, Steam and Oil which indicates how the food is cooked. There are at least 5 items in each section which include sushi, steak, bao, gyoza, tempura and so much more. There are also a small selection of sides which disappointingly (for me) does not include fries. Fries are always nice on the side if you ask me. Nevertheless, there are other delicious sides on the menu such as sticky sesame rice and prawn crackers with avocado dip. On the other hand, some of the dishes are small and the main purpose of their menu is usually to share food so it’s kind of like tapas, just Japanese.
The food of Cottonopolis is always high quality just like it’s service and they have an extensive drinks menu which include a range of delicious cocktails.
Cottonopolis has recently opened for brunch now too. Their brunch menu consists of waffles with a range of toppings, brunch cocktails as well as sushi, dumplings and more.
This is by far one of my favourite places to eat in Manchester and I know that if I’m stuck for ideas of where to eat, I can always go there and they will deliver.
