Vero Moderno was one of the first restaurants to open up in the newly regenerated area of Chapel Street, with a vision to be at the heart of a growing community of bars, restaurants and retail units. 

Since opening, the restaurant has been a huge hit with the local community, as well as a roster of Manchester United players and Maxine Peak who regularly pops in to treat herself to the restaurant’s authentic Italian cuisine. 

Launching this September, Serata Vegana is a new event from the team at Vero Moderno, exploring the exciting culinary possibilities of vegan Italian cuisine. 

Vero Moderno already hosts regular event nights such as the Taste of Italy – where the different regions of Italy are explored for the local food and wines, and with Serata Vegana, the four course set menu for £33.95 is the team’s first such event catering specifically for the vegan diet, with a view to continue with such events should the night be successful.

The menu is incredible, full of diverse flavours from varying corners of the Mediterranean country. For example, the starter of ‘Bocconcini di Tofu fritto, marinato in salsa di soya e rosmarino, servito con noci e composta di frutti rossi’ translates to gently fried tofu nuggets, marinated in soy sauce and rosemary, served with walnuts and red berry compote – a dish that will be an absolute treat for all of the senses. 

Then, for the main, diners will be treated to a hearty bowl of spaghetti in a lightly spicy broccoli veloute with saffron reduction and crumbled bittersweet fried Italian “Crusco” pepper before being joined by a second course of breaded cauliflower cutlets “Milanese”, served with chilli, garlic, cherry tomatoes and dry capers, alongside a beetroot and balsamic vinegar salad.

To finish off the evening, Vero Moderno’s chefs will craft a Strudel di fragole e cioccolato al latte di avena, which is a strawberry and oat milk chocolate strudel. Throughout the evening, owner Beppe will introduce each dish alongside paired drinks from the restaurant’s diverse wine and cocktail menus.

Vero Moderno has built a fantastic customer base, with a reputation for excellent service and a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The restaurant’s name literally means authentic and modern, with flavours and ingredients true to Beppe and his team’s roots, with a passion for creating exciting, modern dishes. 

With regular specials, unlimited brunch on Saturdays and Italian-style roasts on Sundays, the team at Vero Moderno have built a successful and much endeared food spot at the heart of Chapel Street.
