Manchester’s highest – and possibly finest – restaurant, bar and grill. D&D restaurant group’s flagship Manchester restaurant, 20 Stories was the opening of 2018. Floor to ceiling windows (and a huge, outdoor terrace, the same size as the entire restaurant floor), afford breathtaking views of the city and surrounding countryside, while the menu riffs on Hawksmoor’s luxury steakhouse concept.
Start with dishes such as pan fried scallops with Jerusalem artichoke purée and Alsace bacon crisps. Steak or giant sharing cuts such as the 35oz Tomahawk are a thrill. They do great ice cream, and cheesecake (this is a people-pleasing kind of place after all) alongside more imaginative sweet treats, many starring seasonal ingredients.
