'Is this a joke' - popular Manchester restaurant has people panicking over cryptic 'cease to exist' post
A hit Manchester pasta restaurant has sent customers into a frenzy after issuing an update saying it will 'cease to exist' in a few weeks time. Sud Pasta, an Italian restaurant concept with four sites across Greater Manchester, took to social media this morning to update followers on its plans for next year.
In the post, the pasta spot, which opened its first restaurant in 2015 to great acclaim, explained that it's original menu would be returning for six weeks only before being confined to the "history books". After customers asked for clarification in the comments they also confirmed that they had been working "24/7 behind the scenes" on their "most exciting pasta project to date" which is expected to launch in the New Year.
The news follow a number of changes to the pasta concept's offering over the course of 2023. In February it changed its name from its original name Sugo after a dispute with a Glasgow-based eatery, before launching a new city centre outlet in August, and most recently it introduced a downscaled ' small plates' menu in an effort to curb rising costs.

In it's post, shared to Instagram this morning, staff at the pasta spot which specialises in authentic Southern Italian dishes, explained that Sud as in its current incarnation will cease to exist after December 21 and that from today it would be introducing its 'nothing lasts forever' menu, going back to its roots with its much-loved classic dishes with bigger portions and 'old style' classics.
