Wolf At The Door


Modern, Scandi-inspired and locally foraged small plates from a team made up of Manchester’s slacker dining alumni in an achingly cool Northern Quarter setting. With ingredients like dill pollen, toasted buckwheat and juniper wood, Wolf at the Door is a bit like Mana’s cooler, less intense sibling. There’s an upstairs cocktail bar with a menu that doubles as a photo-art project and a central space that has been designed to remove barriers between those making the drinks and those enjoying them. The wine menu is all-natural, of course.

The team behind WATD includes Dan Morris from Cottonopolis, and Mat Lake, Bart Murphy and Lyndon Higginson of Bunny Jacksons amongst other projects. In the kitchen, James Lord of Manchester House has devised dishes like aged beef tartare, pickled green strawberry, toasted milk crisp, pressed potato, smoked egg, brown crab & dill pollen, and those signature BBQ lamb skewers. It’s a far cry from the freak shakes and Man vs Food style burgers of the majority of the NQ but somehow fits right in.
