Manchester Evening News - - CITY LIFE - News­desk@men-news.co.uk @Ci­tyLifeManc

HEALTH-CON­SCIOUS res­tau­rant Love Thy Neigh­bour is open­ing its doors in Chorl­ton next month fol­low­ing its suc­cess in Liver­pool.

The ‘Ibiza-cum-LA’ style res­tau­rant will be open­ing on Wil­bra­ham Road in De­cem­ber with plans for a Ch­ester site to fol­low in early 2018.

Tak­ing over the Palate wine bar, the sec­ond Love Thy Neigh­bour joint will seat up to 40 din­ers inside, ex­pand­ing to an ex­tra 15 out­side come spring.

The orig­i­nal res­tau­rant on Liver­pool’s quirky Bold Street has be­come known for its healthy chick­pea pan­cake brunch menu and whole­some Bud­dah Bowls, while the evening menu fea­tures a mix of healthy and in­dul­gent dishes, from falafel to chicken wings.

Din­ers can ex­pect plenty of ve­gan, veg­e­tar­ian and pescatar­ian op­tions, de­signed with in­put from an in-house nu­tri­tion­ist.

Cock­tails in­clud­ing char­coalac­ti­vated black daiquiris sit along­side ve­gan wines and beers, turmeric lat­tes, pressed juices and smooth­ies on the drinks menu.

Andy Duck­worth, cre­ative di­rec­tor at Love Thy Neigh­bour, said: “Love Thy Neigh­bour re­ally fits with the work pro­fes­sional’s health con­scious mind­set – those who love the gym, the yoga girls and those who want to look af­ter them­selves, but at the week­end, they want to let their in­ner an­ar­chist go and come and en­joy small plates with some de­li­cious cock­tails, ve­gan wines and beers and some great mu­sic.

“We want to trans­port our cus­tomers back to the places they love to go on hol­i­day like Ibiza, LA and be­yond and we are thrilled to be bring­ing our con­cept to a new au­di­ence.”

The Chorl­ton res­tau­rant will fea­ture the same In­sta­gram-wor­thy in­te­rior de­sign as the Liver­pool branch, with neon sig­nage, liv­ing walls, white­washed floor­ing and tat­too-de­signed ply­wood fea­tur­ing the slo­gans Eat What You Love and Av­o­cado is BAE.

Andy added: “We may have started life in Liver­pool but we have al­ways loved our neigh­bours here.

“I ac­tu­ally lived in Chorl­ton for a long time and al­ways knew I wanted to do some­thing here – Manch­ester has a great en­ergy about it.”

The in­de­pen­dent res­tau­rant group stems from the grow­ing Know Col­lec­tion, whose CEO Steven Hes­keth was re­cently named among the 42 un­der 42 busi­ness peo­ple to watch at the re­cent In­sider Pub­li­ca­tion Awards in Manch­ester.
