DISHOOM DISH­ING UP

Cheshire Life - - Food & Drink -

The team be­hind the muchloved Dishoom restau­rants will open in Manch­ester this win­ter, in the his­toric Manch­ester Hall build­ing on Bridge Street.

Like their other restau­rants, this new­est mem­ber of the Dishoom fam­ily will pay homage to the old Irani cafés of Bom­bay, and will be open ev­ery day from early un­til late, serv­ing their Ex­ec­u­tive Chef Naved Nasir’s break­fast menu (with the renowned Ba­con Naan Roll), fol­lowed by his all-day shar­ing menu of Bom­bay com­fort food – small plates, grills, birya­nis, salad plates, rolls and cur­ries.

Dishoom Manch­ester will also fea­ture a Per­mit Room bar, serv­ing Daru-walla1 Carl Brown’s list of de­li­cious and sin­cere tip­ples, as well as some brand new cock­tails and a range of ex­cel­lent non­al­co­holic cock­tails, which are known as ‘copy tip­ples’.

Irani cafés were once part of the fab­ric of life in Bom­bay.

They were opened early in the last cen­tury by Zoroas­trian im­mi­grants from Iran. There were al­most four hun­dred of these cafés at their peak in the 1960s. But now fewer than 30 re­main in op­er­a­tion.
