A NEW Italian-inspired eaterie has opened in Manchester. We went down to have a look around and have a chat with the owners about their new venture.
Enzo is located on Fountain Street, just off Market Street and opened its doors to the public on April 10. It’s light and spacious, with floor to ceiling windows running along one side of the restaurant, with wooden tables, exposed brick wall and splashes of colour throughout. The décor is minimal yet stylish and quirky – a sign lit up with light bulbs reads ‘PIZZA’, and multi-coloured, metal lampshades hang in a line along the seating area of the café.
We had a chat with owner James Skade ahead of the opening. He describes Enzo as a ‘modern, all-day dining brand’ where everything is homemade, and the emphasis is on people and the experience.
They put a lot of importance on finding the right staff who can make the diners experience the best it can be, and a lot of thought into each of their products to make sure they’re just right.
They have their own house coffee blend, which they have lovingly created alongside their coffee roasters by mixing together various coffee beans to create the exact flavour they are after. Fresh pasta and pizza dough are made on site daily, as well as a selection of cakes. There are clearly no corners cut here.
Some of their dishes can’t be found anywhere else in Manchester. We can’t wait to go back in to try their breakfast pizzas! Hollandaise on a pizza – yes please.
It’s the perfect place to hang out with a perfectly crafted coffee and a cake, grab some lunch in between the shops or take it to go.
