One of the most up-and-coming areas in any city of the UK is Manchester’s Northern Quarter. Teeming with creative clothes shops, pleasing pubs, cool cafes and some of the most reputable restaurants around, the area has been attracting much of the artistic and cultural community to the city.
The Northern Quarter Restaurant and Bar has been on the radar here ever since the renowned chef Jason Wass steered this well-designed venue away from its initial focus on Middle Eastern food to its current Modern British fare. The incumbent head chef, Anthony Fielden, has continued down this path using prime local ingredients combined with a flare and passion for European food.
Generally recognised as one of Manchester’s top independent eateries, The Northern Quarter Restaurant and Bar has the freedom to pick its menu well and the concise yet inventive result uses three main elements to every dish carefully selected to complement the others. The Lancashire heartland is borne out with classics such as the Ham Hock with Mrs Kirkhams Cheese Terrine and Mustard Fruits, and the mouthwatering Suckling Pig with ‘a la grecque’ vegetables and salsa verde.
The accompanying wine list is long enough to suit any taste and has been carefully selected to match the variety and flavour of the food on offer, including the array of luscious desserts, should you still have room.
In its essence, The Northern Quarter Restaurant and Bar is an emblem for the area itself. Vibrant, creative, atmospheric and undoubtedly full of quality – a treat for any foodie.
