It is the first time I have been to Manchester and I had no idea what to expect when it came to dining out. I was in Manchester as part of Luxury Week Manchester and I was excited to see what this city has to offer for up and coming new restaurants. So it made perfect sense that I was guided to what the locals opt for. This way a got a mix of favourite local restaurants teamed with the latest places that are trending.
I am finding now that eating out is not just about the food itself. It is about the experience and the creative ways they are serving these days. This is what makes it so much more fun. The following three restaurants is where I was hosted and I loved every bit of it.
Quill s a new restaurant that just opened up several months ago in Manchester, located on King Street. The food presentation is like no other and the way they serve it, is why you must come and try it. I liked how you could either just sit and drink and catch up with a few friends or sit down with a big group and enjoy unique food. The food and service were both equally amazing and the use of liquid nitrogen gave a sense of theatre and drama to the occasion.
Quill has something called a pre-starter which the call an amuse-bouche, It is a bite-size surprise that changes every week. In my case it was Marmite butter, being Australian I loved it. My compliments to the chef it started the meal off perfectly.
I thought I might have been rushed being on the early diner menu but not at all and I had a great window seat. My favourite part of the evening was the dramatic presentation and the way the food was served. You can see that in the video below. Each course came beautifully crafted on the plate, served by extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff. They moved around so quietly but were always at hand when you needed them.
If you are looking for a special, friendly but theatrical and surprisingly tasty dining experience, then Quill is the place for you. This is a place you want to be in with someone to really impress, it is all about the food after all. Make sure you book in advanced.
