Aubaine at Selfridges, city centre
This delightful space, with a floor to ceiling glass wall overlooking the citys Exchange Square provides an atmosphere as light and airy as a beautifully furnished and flower bedecked elevated conservatory. The menu is modern French, free from stereotype, and the assured and confident cooking demonstrates a lightness of touch and sophistication entirely commensurate with the delightful surroundings.


Cicchetti by San Carlo, city centre
Set on the ground floor of the House of Fraser store across the road from its enduringly popular parent, San Carlo, this classy restaurant oozes not only style but also loads of fun. Taking its name from the Italian for small dishes, the restaurant offers a brilliant menu of Venetian-style specialities seafood hitting particularly high notes and was deservedly described by critic Jay Rayner as truly premiership material.


The Market Restaurant, Northern Quarter
Manchesters original Northern Quarter restaurant was well-established long before anyone thought up the name Northern Quarter. Taking its name from the old market opposite, the venues decor sits in a cosy 1950s time warp, but the menu, changing every six weeks, reflects a modern approach to classic British cooking with special emphasis on the best of regional and seasonal ingredients.
