Moving to Shoreditch is a big move for a restaurant these days. It symbolises that they either think they’ve got it, know they’ve got it, or are confidently unafraid of losing it. Manteca is all of these things. The British-powered Italian-influenced spot really made its name in Soho and now their first permanent restaurant in Shoreditch is officially The Place To Be. With oaty interiors not unlike Kim and Kanye’s weird gaff and clientele that you’ll think is Alexa Chung then realise is, sadly, Gizzi Erskine one you find your glasses, it’s brought its porky and crabby cacio e pepe goodness to a bigger, buzzier and more blowout crowd with consummate ease. Book early, settle in, and don't miss that pig skin ragu whatever you do.
