The River Restaurant
The River Restaurant at The Lowry Hotel is Manchester’s classic fine dining restaurant. Huge names that have run the kitchen include Marco Pierre White, while diners have included Jose Mourinho and Kylie.
Having recently undergone a major refurbishment, Executive Head Chef Dominic Grundy has revamped the menu with updated classics. Typical dishes could include char siu monkfish with crisp nori, caviar and shrimp popcorn, or sous vide lamb rump with confit rib and morel mushroom. For dessert, think poached vanilla meringue with apricot and almond nougatine or banana rum parfait with caramelised banana bread, pistachio and yogurt ice cream . The cocktail list is as refined as you’d expect from Manchester’s only five-star hotel.
