Dear diners, please take a look under Further Information for Neighbourhood’s booking policies.
No better place for a New American restaurant whose aesthetic is all about New York’s Five Boroughs than in Manchester’s city centre hub of Spinningfields. Neighbourhood offers a casual but refined dining experience featuring gourmet ingredients and an industrial chic vibe. New American cuisine is interpreted from an East Coast perspective, looking back to Old World and European cuisines but incorporating a contemporary twist that is distinctively Empire State. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks – the bar is fully reminiscent of Manhattan’s best – you can find Neighbourhood along The Avenue North, off Dolefield and Bridge Street.
To book for groups of more than 6 people, please contact the restaurant directly. A non-refundable deposit of £10 per person is required for weekend bookings of more than 4 people. Also, Restaurant policies will be sent along with reservation confirmation.
Manhattan is an island in endless pursuit of lunch – and thanks to Neighbourhood, Manchester’s city centre has found what Manhattan has always been looking for, quickly becoming the number one celebrity haunt in the city. Regulars include Man U and City football teams, entertainers Ollie Murrs, Miley Cyrus and a huge list of other stars. Properly liquid, lunch at Neighbourhood down Spinningfields’ The Avenue North should begin with a glass of Veuve Clicquot, a classic Mimosa, or a Cuban Bellini (perfectly acceptable in polite East Coast company now that the Caribbean island is in the process of ending its long-standing isolation from the US). Luxury appetisers like the lobster tacos take the best of New England and give them a Tex-Mex twist – exemplary of the New American cuisine that Neighbourhood proudly stands for. Another fusion feature on the menu is the restaurant’s sushi selection, made using exclusively line-caught and sashimi-grade tuna and Scottish salmon from Loch Duart.
Overall, the kitchen at Neighbourhood focuses on executing international cuisine as it is in Manhattan, offering a dining experience speaking to the upscale gastronomic experience of the skyscraping borough but with a European flourish. Dinner is served at a tempo that New York would appreciate, with a selection of share plates marked While You Wait offered prior to the starters and mains. Highlights here include farm-fresh grilled meats in a variety of styles – flatiron beef steaks, the Tommapork chop from Packington – cooked to perfection on the Josper grill. The raw bar again draws on fresh British meat and seafood such as native lobster, Loch Fyne scallops, rope-grown Scottish mussels and Cornish rock oysters, while something as simple as a burger, given the Neighbourhood treatment, is elevated to a work of modern American art: hand-formed chuck steak patty with smoked bacon, Cheddar, truffled mac sauce and salad served on a toasted brioche. A peerlessly stylish landmark in the Spinningfields quarter, this is one neighbourhood eatery that is set to take Manchester’s city centre by storm. Neighbourhood is also an expert event host, with differently sized spaces able to suit any party brief, with canapes mirroring the Manhattanesque a la carte menu and drinks packages. Book in advance and avoid the rush hour crowds.
Excellent meal as always great food, service and atmosphere would definitely return
Elegant, great good, great service, menu fresh and tasty. Clean environment and staff always professional and friendly. Good value and always a great experience for all
Food was excellent - especially the sushi. Great atmosphere with live music. Service was really good and we all had a great night. The only criticism would be the front door is left open and so the table near the door gets very cold
