New Moroccan Restaurant For South Manchester

North African food and a promise to introduce a selection of Moroccan ladies

Published on March 17th 2014.


New Moroccan Restaurant For South Manchester
 

MOROCCO is coming to Altrincham. Myriad will open its doors on The Downs in Altrincham on Friday 4 April.

Myriad will be also introduce a selection of Moroccan ladies who will create a wide range of purely authentic and specialist tagine dishes

This is how they describe themselves.

'Myriad will be introducing a menu infused with sweetness and blended with spices - an innovative combination of Tagine dishes, a myriad of couscous dishes, succulent slow cooked meat and aromatic poultry.

'Authentic Moroccan fish dishes including fresh sardines, lime infused Tiger Prawns and hand dived scallops. Mouth-watering sweets and pastries, lemon curd cheesecake, orange and almond cake drizzled with honey and vanilla clotted cream. Our fabulous Mezze platters are created for two people – food to enjoy and to share.

'One of Myriad’s signature sweets will be Spice Cream – an intriguing blend of ice cream and spices – an incredible taste created to a secret family recipe – only the brave will taste it.'

Crikey - that's blowing your own trumpet.

The interior will be themed to meet the food, arranged round a central courtyard, as is the case with the posh houses in the Mother country. There are promises of leather banquettes, Moroccan lanterns and highlights in silver and gold -  like George Michael's hair back in the day. 

The owners are Mouloud and Joanne who already have a place in Bolton. 

A mystyifying paragraph in the press release reads: 'Dishes will include locally sourced products and whilst the Head Chef Ahmed will oversee the main menu, Myriad will also introduce a selection of Moroccan ladies who will create a wide range of purely authentic and specialist tagine dishes – as only they know how to blend the secret herbs and spices.'

Eh...'introduce Moroccan ladies'? 

Anyway with taster menus for adults and kids plus a ground floor bar it all sounds grand and we'll be into review a couple of weeks into April.

Myriad loses marks over one aspect of its pre-opening publicity. It mentions a 'discreet VIP area'. The first rule of bar and restaurant opening is never mention VIP areas in Greater Manchester because there's a rule of nature in this part of the world that people who require VIP treatment are people you never want to meet. 

You can visit the business's website here. The pictures here are library pictures not of Myriad.
