It says a lot about the Manchester restaurant scene that it’s already taken us two weeks to tell you about areas of Manchester that you have to head to, and we’re still not even half-way through the city!
Continuing our tour of Manchester, this week we look at King Street and Oxford Street:
Whilst not a traditional home of restaurants, with Manchester fast developing eateries and bars on every street corner, it would seem remiss to miss out Oxford Street.
In recent years Revolucion de Cuba entered the scene – offering great fare from South America, naturally – plus there’s the swish new Italian Fumo in the new KPMG building, Opus in the Radisson, fancy food at The French at the Midland or James Martin at 235, not to mention our old favourite Don Giovanni’s, and a great burrito place further down towards the palace theatre. BrewDog is obviously also a favourite of mine – they’re famous for their beer, but their burgers are great too!
King Street used to be the home of the banking district in Manchester, but, thankfully, is now the home of a number of some of Manchester’s best ‘elegant but affordable’ top end restaurants: places that ooze class and offer exceptional flavour but, at the same time, won’t cost an arm and a leg.
The epitome of this, perhaps, is Rosso, a top class bar-restaurant which has been winning awards in recent years (main meals here costs £12-15, and you can get 20% off all food with a CityCard), but there is also Jamie’s Italian, Room, All Bar One, Browns and Avalanche. All great places to eat!
