ARTISAN. Opens June '13.

ARTISAN. Opens June '13.

Living Ventures are preparing for the birth of their most challenging and exciting restaurant to date: Artisan. Due to open towards the end of June 2013, set in a vast 12, 000 square foot, semi-industrial space on the first floor of Tower 12 in Spinningfields. Cooking goes back to basics in the fire, this is casual dining at its best. Think artist's loft studio meets concrete warehouse: stripped back and raw. Showcasing sculptures, murals, art installations and furniture from the very best artists and craftsmen.

Fire is at the literal heart of the restaurant, with two wood ovens burning throughout the day and night. Artisan will offer a modestly priced, rustic menu for you to pick over or feast on. Flamed meat, fish and unusual pizzas come straight from the fire, everything will be prepared in front of you before being thrown into the flames.  The team of chefs will take cooking back to basics; with fresh, interesting ingredients cooked using age-old primal techniques.

This handcrafted sensibility extends to the drinks menu; a collection of innovative cocktails will be served from a truly unique 20 foot long bar. Sitting alongside a small, but perfectly formed, selection of wines, spirits and beers. The spacious, informal bar will see a selection of DJ's playing on its inbuilt decks throughout the week.

Tim Bacon, Living Venture's Managing Director, describes his driving passion to create something different, something that Manchester has never seen before. He says of Artisan: "It's the people, the art and the food, you should always leave with a story." Whether a tale from a night spent feasting with friends on the Captain's Table or a strip of pictures from the photo booth.

Open all day, every day, serving brunch on weekends as well as lacing the city with music and drink into the night; Artisan will embrace Manchester's thriving creative scene and produce real, honest dishes from its open kitchen. The restaurant's blend of bucolic values and culture will provide a different experience with every visit.
