Harden's says

The team behind El Gato Negro have opened a second 110-cover site in the city. Canto is in the Fairbairn building in Ancoats, and the in-part-cork-walled space serves 'modern Portuguese' cuisine inspired by chef/patron Simon Shaw’s travels to Lisbon, as well as head chef Carlos Gomes’ upbringing in Porto.

Summary

The team behind El Gato Negro have opened a second 110-cover site in the Fairbairn building in Ancoats. The tiled (partly with cork!) space serves ’modern Portuguese’ cuisine inspired by chef/patron Simon Shaw’s travels to Lisbon, as well as head chef Carlos Gomes’ upbringing in Porto.
