The Alchemist Spinningfields launches a fresh and sustainable menu
Manchester original, The Alchemist, will be launching its fresh new menu following the extensive renovation of its Spinningfields flagship. The vibrant new menu is designed to celebrate the sustainable efforts of the brand and tailored to a variety of dietary requirements. The new menu is now 58 per cent vegetarian, 38 per cent gluten free and 44 per cent vegan.
The new food offering is revealed as The Alchemist leads its Manchester homecoming with a refined refurbishment of its original venue, The Alchemist Spinningfields. A significant evolution for The Alchemist, having journeyed through creative alchemy, and potions with its molecular mixology style, The Alchemist Spinningfields is the first destination to reveal the original alchemists’ new style, featuring futuristic, divine influences from astrology and the cosmos.
A collaboration with Meatless Farm, means anyone from meat-eaters to flexitarians, vegetarians to vegans will be impressed with the extensive array of tasty plant-based options. Bursting with flavour, and that all-important umami, crispy shredded plant-based duck bao buns are the perfect light accompaniment to a cocktail or two, served with vegan miso mayo, spring onions, cucumber, and fresh chilli. There is no compromise when it comes to hearty plant-based offerings.
Steering the new menu is a selection of Asian-fusion classics. In true Alchemist style, the new Yakitori Grill brings theatre and magic to the table. With chilli barbecue chicken skewers served with shishito peppers and kimchi slaw. Spinning a twist on dessert, enjoy Yakatori caramelised pineapple on the grill served with a pumpkin seed snap, pina colada foam and rum syrup.
This new-look menu is a response to the progressive shift to a more ethical way of dining. Culinary director, Seamus O’Donnell, notes: “We’ve really tuned into our guests and team members’ feedback and have worked our food offering to bring it even further in line with the sustainable efforts of the brand. We understand that many people have dietary requirements and are choosing a more Flexitarian lifestyle. Our menu is now sitting at 58% vegetarian and 44% plant based.”
