The menu takes shape in Manchester’s famous New Century Hall

New Century Hall’s first kitchen menu has been announced, featuring a convenience store from one of Manchester’s most famous chefs.

The legendary music venue hasn’t been in use for the better part of a decade, but is set to reopen this summer as a destination for events, music, food, and drink.

The heart of the project will be the 10,000-square-foot kitchens, with six independent operators catering to approximately 300 people.

Adam Reed, the chef behind The French inside The Midland hotel (often hailed as one of the area’s best restaurants), will open up a whole new concept that’s a little departure from his usual fare.

They will bring their own vegetarian Vietnamese and Thai dishes to the venue, including paan mi baguettes, steaming bowls of pho, and fresh summer rolls.
