Tacos and tequila fit the bill for Whitworth Locke's new ‘residency restaurant’

15 May 2019

ALL roads led to El Camino’s popular Mexican pop-up at Get Chucked in Urmston. Now city centre gringos are going to get a taste of the spicy action.

The Cotton Factory ‘residency restaurant’ will launch in the recently opened Whitworth Locke aparthotel in early June with a three month stint from El Camino (bookings from early June)

It will be the first of anevolving series of collaborations with up and coming food traders, showcasing global cuisines. El Camino will serve their signature tacos and burritos, Mex beer and tequilas in the 78 cover restaurant with an open plan kitchen, hidden private dining room and a new bar. There will be homemade hot sauces, guacamole prepped to order and plenty of veggie options, too.

El Camino founder Scott Power told us: “We had a brilliant run with our first pop-up in Urmston and this is a great opportunity to take our concept to the wider city centre audience with an experienced and creative partner that will really help us make a success of our first residency in town.”

The spectacular glass-roofed atrium, which houses the complex’s bar, was transformed as part of the renovation work for Whitworth Locke aparthotel, formerly a historic cotton mill.
