Residency restaurant The Cotton Factory will launch in the recently opened Whitworth Locke aparthotel with a Mexican offering courtesy of El Camino.

El Camino will be the first of an evolving food and drunk offering at The Cotton Factory.  The residency restaurant will host a series of pop-up feasts in collaboration with up and coming new food traders, showcasing cuisine from all over the globe.

El Camino will serve their signature tacos and tequila in the 78 cover restaurant featuring an open plan kitchen, hidden private dining and a new bar.

The residency comes after El Camino hosted its first pop-up in Urmston earlier this year.  Their stay in Urmston was extended due to demand.  They have created a bespoke menu for The Cotton Factory to include authentic Mexican dishes alongside tacos and burritos, all served with tequila cocktails and a host of Mexican beers.  There will be homemade hot sauces, guacamole prepped to order and plenty of options for vegetarians too

The Cotton Factory, named after the mill it calls home, was created by The Initiative Group to enable up and coming food traders to showcase exciting new food and drink menus in the open plan 78-cover restaurant.  The bar will remain the heart of the property, with an open plan seating area which will allow diners to flow through the restaurant and into the bar, which will be host to further independent traders later this year.

The team behind El Camino will be joining The Cotton Factory for a three month residency with the restaurant set to open early July.  Reservations are recommended and will be live from the 1st June.

The restaurant marks the third venue for the duo behind the concept, Scott Power and Sean Robinson, joining Get Chucked in Urmston and Get Church at Hatch.
