Set to open their doors on Friday 10th July, WOOD over on First Street have taken the time on lockdown to launch a new menu format, as well as offer up a new Vegan menu for the first time ever.
Their primary dining experience will still be their updated 5, 7 and 10 course tasting menus, which have now been designed to cater for regular diners, pescatarian, vegetarian and now vegan guests. Each menu is created using top quality seasonal produce, accompanied by an expertly chosen wine menu or matching standard and premium wine flights.
Simon Wood explains “Being in lock-down has given me the opportunity to reflect on the WOOD Manchester journey so far, revisit my vision for accessible fine dining, and my commitment to the city I love. I’ve been spending time developing new dishes and making plans to enhance the current offering.”
In addition, their Theatre and A La Carte Menus have been replaced by a 3-course fixed price A Taste of WOOD menu, which will deliver exceptional dishes for great value at £28 per person.
A Taste of WOOD aims to provide a stepping stone for people might be daunted by the Tasting Menu format, giving them the chance to experience WOOD but in a slightly more casual and approachable way.
