Another exciting new restaurant is preparing to open in Prestwich, as Michelin-trained Danielle Heron launches her first site.
Taking over a former kitchen showroom on Bury New Road, Osma will have a Norweigan influence taken from Danielle’s impressive culinary CV.
The Whitefield-born 28 year old has honed her skills at the likes of two Michelin-starred L’enclume in the Lake District and three Michelin-starred Maaemo in Oslo.
Her new concept, and her first solo venture, will be serving Scandinavian-style open sandwiches and hearty salads, with a frequently changing evening menu served four nights a week.
The restaurant and bar will also have fresh juices, coffee, and creative cocktails on the menu.
Danielle is launching Osma this month near where she grew up, with co-owner Sofie Stoermann-Naess.
The pair have turned the old Diane Berry kitchen showroom into a relaxed and modern restaurant space, with natural tones on the walls and rattan details suspended in mid-air.
Danielle and Sofie said: “Osma will use ingredients from local British farms and producers, showcasing their products in their purest form by letting each ingredient speak for itself.
“Seasonality will naturally be a big part of how we design our menus and will influence the interior of the space.
“Our goal is to provide healthy, creative, tasty food with influences from around the world, building on the experiences we have gained over the years working and travelling.
“It’s great to be back home and see the buzz about the neighbourhood, which features plenty of independent restaurants.
“We are excited about getting going and serving the community some great food in a friendly, relaxed environment.
“Osma has been designed to attract every walk of life and offer something for everyone. You can dine at a window table, in booth seating or sit at the bar to watch the chefs working.
“We also have a large communal table with power points, perfect for a fast working lunch, as a social meeting table for cocktails or for larger groups out to celebrate.”
Osma will open at 132 Bury New Road later this month – you can see the latest updates on their Instagram page.
