Three in a row: El Gato Negro awarded a Michelin ‘Bib Gourmand’ for 2019

Wednesday 3rd October 2018

Everyone at El Gato Negro is absolutely delighted to have been awarded a prestigious Bib Gourmand for the third year in a row in the 2019 edition of the Michelin Guide for Great Britain and Ireland. The whole team has worked hard to ensure we remain a restaurant offering ‘good quality, good value cooking’ as a Bib recognises, and we’re honoured to be the only Bib Gourmand holder in the city of Manchester.

Chef patron and creative director Simon Shaw said

“We couldn’t be happier with our Bib Gourmand and we’re so pleased to have secured a hat-trick at our city centre restaurant! It’s down to an incredible team effort and we’re all so pleased with the achievement. We’ll certainly be celebrating this week!”

El Gato would like to thank all our staff and suppliers, as well as our customers and industry colleagues for their ongoing patronage and support. Congratulations to all the restaurants who’ve gained or retained Bibs and stars in this week’s Michelin Guide announcements. We’re delighted and honoured to be part of a select group of establishments during what feels like a ‘golden age’ for great food in Britain.
