Earle Restaurant, Hale
Sassy suburban venue with smart design and well-crafted dishes from Simon Rimmer, the chirpy, ladies’ favourite TV chef. Dishes such as pork three ways, pork fillet and creamed cabbage, pork belly with black pudding mash and curried pork and apple spring roll or Pan-fried salmon and scallops, pea puree, bacon lardons and truffle always hit the spot.
4 Cecil Road, Hale, Altrincham. WA15 9PA. 0161 929 8869 www.earlerestaurant.co.uk

Second Floor Restaurant at Harvey Nichols, City
Chef Stuart Thompson here is becoming well known all over the north for his delicacy of cooking, his presentation skills and his creative approach to fine dining. Choose dishes such as Rainbow trout, parsley risotto and smoked macadamia or confit pork belly, braised pig cheek and seared scallop and you’ll blown away – while also enjoying people watching the customers swing in and out.
21 New Cathedral Street, City. M1 1AD 0161 828 8898 www.harveynichols.com

Ego, Albert Square, City centre
With big windows surveying the Albert Square scene Ego provides some Mediterranean heat at all times of the year. The smart modern venue has a menu including items such as Andalucian pork fillet wrapped in prosciutto, roasted and served with a spinach, apricot and sherry cream sauce or a smoked haddock, chive and pea risotto, pizzas and sharing dishes.
Northern Assurance Buildings, 9-21 Princess St, City, M2 4DN. 0161 819 2464 www.egorestaurants.co.uk

Bluu Bar, City
A great place to see and be seen, one of the first of the Northern Quarter bars that made a splash with a swish design and a contemporary menu of bar favourites. Gets busy at the weekend, underlining how its popularity has never waned. Expect simple staples, sharing platters, sandwiches, steaks, fish and chips, and a Sunday Recovery Service including drinks and roast.
New Smithfield Market, Thomas Street, City, M4 1BD 0161 839 7195 www.bluu.co.uk
