    Bold Street Coffee Manchester

    Restaurant - Global

    Open in Liverpool since 2010, BSC is something of an institution over there and the place to go if you’re in need of caffeine sustenance. Breakfast, brunch and all things cheap and lunch-like are also on the menu, while the art-adorned walls make it a great place to chill out.

    BOX Deansgate

    Restaurant - Global

    BOX is all about big-screen sports, booze (including two-for-one cocktails) and blokes singing – “bandeoke” is a thing and it exists here – live music Thursday to Saturday, shuffleboard and tournament-themed food (Six Nations served up fiery dragon fries and a burger de Paris).

    Cafe Sanjuan

    Serving a unique Caribbean-Colombian combo, Cafe Sanjuan is the creation of Luis Felipe Sanjuan, who hails from Barranquilla, a bustling seaport on the Caribbean coast of Colombia – his mum Viviana helps in the kitchen to keep it real; his dad, also Luis Felipe, does deliveries.

    Harvey Nichols Second Floor Deli Bar

    Restaurant - European

    Hutch up near one of the floor-to-ceiling windows in the new Second Floor Deli Bar and take in the views over the adjacent Cathedral and Medieval Quarter while taking a weight off those shopped-out feet and tucking in to some hand-selected nibbles and a well-earned glass or two of fizz.

    Hello Oriental

  • Book Now Broughton

    Hong Kong Choi

    Restaurant - Chinese

    This cha chaan teng-style “tea restaurant” is the Hong Kong equivalent of a greasy spoon and serves the region’s typical Canto-European crossover cuisine, the result of its colonial history, fusing British and southern Chinese elements in a real east-meets-west repertoire of dishes.

  • Book Now Altrincham

    Jardim

    Restaurant - South American

    “Flames and flora” are promised by South Manchester’s South American-inspired grilled meat joint Jardim – Portuguese for “garden – and we’d also add in “fancy”, as Fazenda and Tast co-owner Robert Melman is the name on the Altrincham churrasco’s chequebook.

  • Book Now Chinatown

    Namii Kitchen & Cocktails

    Restaurant - Vietnamese

    It’s got neon, it’s got pastels, it’s got faux foliage, it’s got innovative cocktails and it’s got Pan Asian cuisine with a definite lean Vietnam-wards. It calls itself “authentically modern”, but faithful to the Vietnamese way of life, it recommends ordering food for the table, tapas style.

    Salt Dog Slims Manchester

    Restaurant - American

    “Steins, brines, and good times” – that’s how the saying goes at American-inspired Salt Dog Slims, new over from Liverpool, although tbh it’s probably more of the former and mostly the latter, but then who wants to get in the way of a fine rhyme as we all just try and rub along in this world?

    Tipples of Manchester

    Bars

    Tipples of Manchester is a gin specialist store, with 100 bottles and counting – but, as they say themselves, “you can’t have a spirits shop with only gin now can you?”, so the floor-to-ceiling shelves are also creaking under the weight of 700 spirits, liqueurs, bitters, syrups and more.
