New to Nottingham: Mowgli, The Atrium Bar & Kitchen and Irie & Co.
Mowgli is about how Indians eat at home and on their streets, pared back and unplugged. She was born to feed the raw need Indians have for Tiffins full of fresh bright intense flavour.
Mowgli is not about the intimate, hushed dining experience. It is about the smash and grab zing of healthy, light, virtuosic herbs and spices.
The Mowgli experience is about a fresh take on Indian food. It is a million miles away from the curry house experience. Mowgli dishes follow the Hindu tradition of garlic and onion free dishes for lunch.
This is how Indians eat in the privacy of their home kitchens and favourite lunchtime street stalls. Mowgli is a new face of Indian food and at its heart is the brisk freshness of Indian food unplugged.
Founder and CEO Nisha Katona opened her first Mowgli on Bold Street in Liverpool in 2014 when she was still working full time as a Barrister.
The brand expanded quickly and now operates two sites in Liverpool, and one in Manchester, Birmingham, and Oxford.
Mowgli is set to open its first Nottingham site in the foodie fantastic Hockley area in July.

The Atrium Bar and Kitchen
Having run the Harley Café at Welbeck for the past 15 years, it was time to branch out and find another adventure.
They searched all over Nottingham for the right fixer upper – one to put our mark on, and when they found the old Natwest Bank in Radcliffe on Trent, and the light flooding in from the giant atrium.
The amazing atrium floods the entire front section with gorgeous light.
They’ve not stripped the place out completely, some of the great features like the walk in vault, have remained, which will be their private dining area!
It was important to find a community that they could be part of.
The people of Radcliffe have shown such interest and support over the past few months of renovations – and they’ve found some great local people to join our team.
The menu comprises of everything from scones to cakes, salads to soups, tarts to tagines, flatbreads to falafels. Everything from the jam to the burger is homemade, on site.
The Atrium is licenced, and will be offering unusual wines, local beers and own range of cocktails.
They hope to be open at the end of June 2018.
