Since The French earned one in 1974, Manchester city centre has been devoid of a Michelin Starred restaurant, something that has grated on the locals and left many northern foodies puzzled.
When the provocative BBC documentary Restaurant Wars aired back in 2014, it was rather apparent that the Manchester restaurant scene was going to be given a black mark by the Michelin inspectors, which meant that 2015 was always likely to see no new star in Manchester.
Despite this, The French and Manchester House both offer excellent food and a wonderful dining atmosphere, something that has been recognised by the award of 4 AA rosettes to Aiden Byrne’s Manchester House.
While the award of 4 AA rosettes is not a guarantee of a star, surely this must encourage the Michelin inspectors to start looking at Manchester with a fresh set of eyes and perhaps put the Restaurant Wars faux pas behind them.
After all, if this is coming from a Leeds based blog, you know Manchester must be doing something right!
