“Doing lots of little things right” is a definition of perfection. And Oystercatcher – a simple seafood restaurant in Chorlton – is just that.
The kitchen’s Inca grill is masterfully handled by co-owner Recep Canliisik, who churns out dishes such as char-grilled whole sea bream, and Tandoori-barbecued monkfish tail.
Dishes come as go as does the tide – but naturally, oysters play a starring role. While perfect puds could include rhubarb brûlée or nutty espresso affogato with hazelnut liqueur.
Quiet sophistication and affordability typify the drinks menu; think negronis, snappy sparkling wines and Portuguese whites among a good selection of classics.
Undeniably casual, this is the kind of place you could easily visit twice a week – and many do.
