Million Pound Menu stars Finca have announced they launch their first Manchester pop-up on Thursday 7th June. The Liverpool-based brand will take over Artisan’s ground floor cafe/bar, after partnering with Living Ventures CEO Jeremy Roberts on the BBC Two show.

Open seven days a week serving food from midday to 9pm, the Cuban street food concept proved a hit with audiences watching the BBC’s new culinary programme.

The menu will include dishes featured on the show such as cubanos, along with classic Cuban cocktails and a number of vegetarian and vegan options.

Michael Harrison, chef and co-founder of Finca, said: “We’ve been perfecting our craft for the past two years in the north west street food scene with Finca so it’s brilliant to have this opportunity to take over a prime location at Artisan to bring our food to the forefront and put our plans into motion. We have huge plans for Finca and believe that Artisan is the perfect place to start our Manchester journey. We’re currently busy planning new menu additions and exciting events ready for our launch next month.”

Jeremy Roberts, co-founder of Living Ventures, added: “We are excited to welcome Finca to Artisan. They impressed a lot of people while on Million Pound Menu – myself included – it will great to bring them to the heart of the city and introduce their food to Manchester.”
