Elnecot – review [Food] (Spoiler alert – food is delicious)

Went to the restaurant Elnecot about a few months ago with friends and OMG the food is so good. We were supposed to visit just before Christmas but there was an unfortunately mix up in bookings but Elnecot sorted it all out and were very good about it all.

Elnecot is a relatively new bar/restaurant which opened in September 2017 in the Ancoats area of Manchester in Cutting Room Square (which over the last year or so has transformed with new restaurants and bars opening including the excellent Rudy’s). Also there are loads of new apartment blocks popping in the Ancoats area – very much an up and coming area.

The interior design of Elnecot has a sort of minimalist, industrial feel. The food will focus on locally sourced, seasonal produce.

The restaurant is sort of one big “room” with a long 44ft concrete “bar” on the left as you enter. There is the actual bar and then there is an open kitchen behind this bar. The seating is a mix of tables, benches by the bar and then large benches.

As seems to be the trend in restaurants in Manchester (and probably elsewhere) is that the menu consists at many small plates, tapas style. I assume the idea is that its good for sharing if in a big group.

I generally like this as I like to try as many different things as possible. On to the actual food: Every single dish delicious. Every dish. The photos I took, admittedly not my best, don’t do it justice! There was 6 of us in the group and we ended up ordering pretty much everything of the menu. Need to visit again to try the other things – some were sold out.

Trying to think what my favourite plate/dish was. The best of the best: Pearl barley arancini, pork belly, lamb ribs. But as I said, all dishes were delicious.

Highly recommend going. I know people who have been again and food is still good, including the Sunday roast.
