Manchester’s all day dining South American concept, Peru Perdu will start their very first residency next week, as they open their doors at the Cotton Factory with 50% off during their soft launch.
Peru Perdu will officially open on Thursday 31st October for dinner, with lunch and brunch available from Monday 4th November.
There will be a select number of bookings available during their soft opening period, which will offer diners 50% off food in the run up to their official launch.
With an array of exciting sharing dishes, the unique all day dining menu caters for a variety of dietary requirements – each dish full of fresh flavours, featuring seasonal produce.
Peru Perdu have already put their own stamp on the space at the new Ceviche & Chandon station; serving ceviche and raw dishes, a new bottomless brunch every weekend, and a South American style roast – available every Sunday.
There will also be French House DJs from Friday through to Sunday every weekend.
Something special though, is the soon to be famous grass-fed U.W.A steak, which is served either straight up or marinated in Peru Perdu’s rich house marinade, La Brasa, paired with straw potatoes and a choice of homemade sauce.
Small plates are set to include plantain crisps and avo, duck ‘ropa vieja’ tostadas, and crispy coconut shrimp.
Large plates range from braised duck leg, pork belly with adobo chilli, and pollo ‘La Brasa’, with sweet potato and mint.
Fresh fish plays a prominent part on the menu, with fresh cod, tuna, and red prawns all featuring prominently – cooked on the open fire and served with fresh, zesty dressings.
For vegetarian or vegan diners, there are a selection of Planta, plant-based small and large plates, including fresh green papaya salad, steamed black bean dumplings, sweet yam coconut curry and beetroot & apple ceviche. There will also be a daily selection of quinoa bowls, paired with roasted vegetable and fresh leaves.
The open kitchen remains at the heart of the restaurant, allowing diners to watch the preparation in action from the chef’s table. Meanwhile, the open plan seating areas gives customers the option to enjoy booths, benches or the fourteen seat private dining room.
Brunch will be served every Saturday and Sunday from 10am-5pm, and will include two courses from the brunch menu, plus bottomless house pisco sour, Garibaldi, or Chandon, for £30 per person.
Every Sunday from 12pm, the team at Peru Perdu will serve a South American style roast, with options including churrasco beef, pollo La Brasa, pork belly or chimichurri cauliflower, all served with roast veg and gravy.
For the wine lovers among us, there will be an extensive list featuring a number of South American wines from Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay has been curated specifically to compliment the menu. Or, for those who prefer a cocktail, the South American theme will carry across from the restaurant into the Cotton Factory bar, with a range of signature Peruvian Pisco Sours available at both venues.
Youri Michel, director from The Initiative Group, said “Manchester is crying out for an offering like this from Peru Perdu, it’s fresh and young, packed full of healthy flavours and bright colours. It will bring a vibrant energy to the restaurant as the winter months close in. I can’t wait for our first guests to experience the new offering here at the Cotton Factory.”
Peru Perdu will be the second food residency to feature in the restaurant. The concept has been created and will be delivered by the team at Miam Miam Glou Glou, a boutique hospitality consultancy with experience at some of the biggest F&B companies and well known restaurants throughout the UK.
The Miam Miam Glou Glou management & creative team includes former general managers, directors and experienced head trainers and consultants from a pool of leading operators. The core team includes Angus Cameron Pride, a new openings specialist with experience at brands such as Gaucho, The Alchemist and Evelyn’s. Jennifer Hughes, who comes from the Soho House Group, leads the new Peru Perdu concept alongside Angus, following a number of successful working ventures with Michelin chef Richard Corrigan and cocktail maestro Salvatore Calabrese.
Jennifer said “I think it’s an important time for Manchester’s dining scene as food enthusiasts are looking more into experience than ever. We’re thrilled to be working alongside The Initiative Group for our newest venture. Peru Perdu will be a unique dining experience and we’re looking forward to seeing the concept come to life. As Manchester is known for its ever-evolving food offerings, we are even more excited to be able to bring new and fresh concepts such as this to the city.”
The Cotton Factory is Manchester’s first permanent residency restaurant and will continue to have an ever-evolving food and drink offering, showcasing cuisine from all over the globe with an abundance of pop-up feasts in collaboration with up and coming new food traders.
Named after the mill it calls home, The Cotton Factory was created by The Initiative Group to enable up and coming food traders to feature, offering exciting new food and drink menus in the 78-cover restaurant.
While The Cotton Factory food traders will continue to change as each residency comes to a close, the main concept will always be to deliver great quality food, drink and music, with events and parties hosted by the team throughout the year.
