Manchester duo bring "Pizza Bar with a difference" to Alderley Edge


A Manchester based duo have come together to open a new eating and drinking venue in Alderley Edge with the shared goal of providing "Good pizza! Good times!"

Les Deux first Pizza bar for both for Mathieu Everson, who has has been involved in the hospitality industry for 10 years on the supplier side, and Sax, who along with his family, has been involved with brands such as Mughli, Evelyns and The Daisy.

Mathieu Everson explained "Les Deux literally translates to the two of us. This relates to not just our partnership but pairing great pizza with great cocktails.

"There are operators out there who are doing the classic Napolitana really well, we're different. From our travels and background we've drawn up a menu with global influence to suit all tastes. We have a range of classics but then a global section which includes options like wagyu beef salami, crème fraiche and salsa verde, peach and lavender with speck to sticky beef and truffle.

"We're also showcasing a sharing burrata section. At 200g a portion, they are injection with a shot of either pesto, creamy nduja or truffle to suit, served with pane carasau. It's about getting everyone involved."

Les Deux opens at 7 London Road, in the premises previously occupied by The Railway Cafe, today (Tuesday, 10th December), serving pizza at lunchtime on the weekends and throughout the evening when it will turn into a cocktail bar "with an upbeat tempo".

Speaking about why they decided to open their new venture in Alderley Edge, Mathieu said "It was the right space for the idea and Alderley was crying out for a pizza joint."

He added "We will be offering a takeaway service but would love nothing more than our customers to experience our pizzas straight from the oven.

"In a world of greys, we're wanting to be bold and stand out where everything else looks the same, we want to be different, bright colours, happy people, great food, good times.

"We want people to come as they are, be it in a hoodie or a LBD. No matter what, there's great music to dance to, amazing pizza to eat and even better cocktails to drink!"

Don’t mind a pizza restaurant...particularly great for families - but it looks horrendous and not in keeping with other establishments in the village ....

So agree with you Linda....Frontage is such an eyesore...Alderley or elsewhere .
‘Bold ‘ ? Rather cheap and’ve got it so wrong guys.

Let’s hope it does better than Tomfoolery which also tried to be ‘different’ when it came to decor

I was also really looking forward to this, but I am afraid to say that the website has put me off. Some of the pictures are questionable in their taste. I hope that all the feedback is taken on board.

Interesting that it has already a five star google rating before it’s even open! ( rated by a Social Media Marketing company in London. )

Love the frontage..... if we always follow precedent and the norm we wont move on. Although looking down London Rd there is very little that matches so good luck to them. Already got people talking!

Yes I agree with many of the comments regarding the look of the site, interesting comment from Yvonne on its rating even before being opened but maybe some people in London have a 'visionary' perspective. I also wonder about a French language name on an Italian focussed eatery - surely (although my language skills are ropey) should it not be Le Due or am I getting it totally wrong? Willing to be corrected, I am on a language learning journey.

'Alderley was crying out for a pizza joint' - Wow, take that Gusto and Piccolino!

I love pizza, more than the next guy, so would like to think I am their target market, and I was very excited to hear a new wood-fired pizza restaurant was opening in the village. But I don't want or need my pizza to be 'different', I just want it to be really, really good... like Wood, Fire, Smoke. Or 900 Degrees. Or Pizza Express. All barely 1.5 miles away.

I will happily give Les Deux plenty of chances to impress me, but the marketing and appearance of the exterior are not a great start.

I’ve never heard of Les Deux, maybe he is one of these new “celebrity “ chefs that seem to be in trend for about 15 minutes.

Well Mr Deux, you maybe able to cook a Pizza, but let me tell you, the only thing that looks good in Yellow is a JCB.

I'd have said that "nous deux" is what LITERALLY translates as "the two of us" whereas "les deux" literally translates as "the two" and colloquially translates as "together". But I'm not a native French speaker ......
