Booked last minute on a stopover in Manchester. Wasn’t as busy as I expected based on reviews, but we were very impressed with the quality of the food (lamb lean and tender, chicken still moist) and the service. We were even advised to order less bread, which was good advice, other places would have just taken the extra money. Value excellent as well. More

We chose ENY for our wedding anniversary dinner because we got engaged in New York and it didn’t disappoint. The staff were attentive, the service fast, and the food was absolutely delicious. My husband has the Ruben and I had the pastrami burger - both were excellent. Cocktails are quite pricey individually but are 2 for 1 before 10pm so are fine if you have two of the same one. We had a table for 20.15 and were the first ones there so the atmosphere was a bit lacking initially but a complimentary glass of fizz helped! We’ll definitely be back and will bring our NY-loving friends with us. More
