Dinner a while ago at @restaurantmetamorphica in Haslingdon near Manchester. @hayhay_hailz has found an absolute diamond here. The annoyingly young and talented chef @steven_halligan_ , together with his father serving and washing up, hosts just a few seats at his open kitchen counter. In fact on the night we went, he was only cooking for the two of us. There are no strict opening days that he adheres to. If a booking request comes in via his website he’ll open and then once he feels he has enough diners for the week he’ll close off the reservations. 13.5 covers per week(!) is apparently all he needs to break even at this former pub. He’s done the maths and seems like a very smart young man to have taken this site on, giving him the option to expand into the large space at a later date.
He is in the enviable position of having a beautiful open kitchen (installed by him and his dad), but also if you go back of house he still has the enormous former pub kitchen to rattle around in. The food is excellent and if you do venture his way then be sure to ask him to pull out his collection of old menus. £22.50 for three courses at Gordon Ramsey’s Aubergine or a menu from The Square in 1998 or a menu back when Mark Askew was chef de cuisine at restaurants Gordon Ramsey. Fascinating for some of us to geek out over 🤓
Highly recommended and definitely a chef to keep an eye on as I’m sure he has a bright future.
