Simon Rimmer likes it and, judging by the bustling trade its already enjoying, so do the people of Chorlton.
A neighbourhood restaurant in the heart of Chorlton, Grays Larder is the brainchild of Jo Bayes, Sam Fraser and creative chef Anna Fysh.
Seasonal, regularly changing fare helps give spirit and energy to the affordable menu – think larger plates like stout-braised lamb henry, lemon and oregano chicken and 8oz ribeye steak ranging from £10 to £18, whilst salads and ‘larder breads’ sit around the £8 mark.
Starters showcase perhaps more of an inspired passion that elsewhere the menu might not as easily suggest, with dishes such as pork belly croquettes, candied bacon and corn relish (£5.25) and goats’ cheese, honeyed pumpkin seeds, baby roasted beets, baby carrots and ras el hanout (£5) holding up a strong selection of smaller dishes.
The place itself is comfortable and inviting, providing the perfect backdrop for the homely, simple yet still occasion-worthy food – just remember to book in advance if you want to beat the locals to it.
