2018 Cheshire Life Food and Drink Awards


The winner of the City Restaurant of the Year category announced


Caffé Grand by Piccolino

Very much in the heart of the city - literally across the road from Manchester Town Hall - the flagship Piccolino underwent a £1.3m makeover a couple of years ago to make it bigger and more opulent. Caffé Grand is an all-day destination, from breakfast to late, offering not just a comprehensive Italian menu but also cocktail bar, juice bar, oyster and caviar bar.


WOOD restaurant, Manchester

This airy fine-dining-but-informal restaurant is close to Home art and theatre complex in First Street - yet another new quarter of Manchester city centre. The Wood of the title is executive chef and owner Simon Wood, winner of MasterChef in 2015. The food is modern British, and though this is fine dining, Wood’s cuisine is bold, not prissy.

Randall and Aubin, Manchester

The gravitational pull of Manchester’s dining scene has drawn in several London names, and Randall and Aubin, the Soho seafood restaurant, is just another to set up a northern outpost with their very fine-looking brasserie in Bridge Street. Not just fish and seafood dishes, but also rotisserie meats. Or you could just enjoy a martini beneath the twinkling disco ball.
