The north west of England has some great hospitality services and has some fantastic places to wine and dine. I have been fortunate enough to travel around the North of England a few times in my life and I have stopped in at a number of different places. However there are only a few eateries that have really stuck in my mind as being restaurant dining experiences that you have to experience.
Manchester Restaurants have a certain special place in my heart. The city of Manchester is one of the busiest cities in the world and there are a lot of people that need some thing to eat. Therefore there are restaurants, bars and other hospitality services aplenty so whatever takes your fancy you will be able to find it in Manchester.
Three of my favourite restaurants in Manchester include:
Stresa is part of the Ramada hotel that can be found in the Salford Quays area. The restaurant has a contemporary feel with light and comfortable surroundings. I remember visiting this restaurant when I was on a business trip in the area. I had arranged the business dinner to meet with a marketing consultant and the impression the restaurant gave was great and then the food arrived. My marketing friend had said that marketing this place to the public would be easy, as we had both been sold by our starters and the selection of fine wines. Stresa is an Italian restaurant that sources a lot of ingredients from the Lancashire area to make sure that the ingredients you get on your plate are fresh and tasty.
Having always been a fan of seafood and sushi I was delighted when I stepped into the New Samsi Manchester restaurant. It is a Japanese restaurant that has been featured on Channel 4 and has been called the best place for Japanese food in the North West. New Samsi is a restaurant that has to be experienced.
A restaurant called Rhubarb, situated in Didsbury, Manchester is another fine restaurant. Having been featured in both the Michelin and Hardens food guides for their contemporary and eclectic menu. The surprising thing about this restaurant is how small and how personal it is. The restaurant is managed and run by husband and wife team Mark & Lisa Ramsden which gives it that homely feel with excellent service.
