A New Chef Brings A Taste Of Things To Come At Grafene

This month sees the announcement of a new head chef on the north-west restaurant scene, as Ben Mounsey takes the culinary helm at one of Manchester’s leading restaurants and cocktail bars; Grafene

Fast on the heels of the move comes the launch of his new menu this week, which offers Ben’s interpretation of fine, contemporary British food.  To run alongside this, a cocktail collection featuring newly-crafted drinks has been introduced.

The menu is Ben’s reflection of modern British life.  Showing British eccentricity with an often-eclectic combination of ingredients, dishes on his menu include cleverly reconstructed classics and plates to challenge a diner’s perception of familiar foods. 

Infused with his humour, sense of fun and inspiration from his region, Ben promises a menu that “avoids the obvious, with surprises throughout. The result is a celebration of flavour; with a meticulous attention to detail and presented with purposeful simplicity.”  [more info]

Dan Dohety - Second Floor Brasserie

Sprout Supper Club

Back by popular demand, Harvey Nichols is delighted to announce the celebrated chef and author Dan Doherty will be returning to Harvey Nichols in March to host a series of supper clubs across the UK.

The collaboration will see Doherty take his unique supper club “Sprout” nationwide; coming to Manchester on Friday 9 March with an additional brunch club in Manchester on Saturday 10 March.

“Sprout” is a special dining experience that hero’s seasonal ingredients, reflected in both the menu and the space.  [more info]

Portland Problems

Portland St based Indian restaurant Swadesh is in hot water following non payment of fines, resulting from the employment of illegal workers last year, and also a similar incident back in 2016. If action is enforced following pending review, the business could see its alcohol licence removed, which clearly, would make turning a profit very difficult.

Vietnamese New Year

Chinese New Year is just around the corner and that marks the first day of the Lunar New Year which is honoured by many Asian countries including Vietnam (as well as China, of course).

To celebrate Vietnamese New Year Pho are going to be giving out special red envelopes at random in all of their restaurants with gifts inside including complimentary meals, free bowls of pho for next time, and some lucky people will even get their hands on their mythical VIP card. [more info]

The Botanits
Veganuary Isn’t Just For January

With January well and truly done and Veganuary coming to an end, The Botanist is embracing the idea of all-year round good vegan cuisine with the launch of its new vegan menu.

Packed full of delicious ingredients, the new menu features handcrafted dishes free from meat, eggs and dairy, taking you from Veganuary to Veganually.

Speaking on the introduction a the vegan menu, James Scott - executive head chef of the New World Trading Company said: “Over the years we’ve seen a rise in the number of people asking for vegan options on the menu and with record numbers taking part in Veganuary this year, we wanted to create a menu that provides tasty vegan dishes for all to enjoy.” [more info]

The Lowry Manchester
The Cream Of Manchester, 1828

The Lowry Hotel in association with Maggie’s Cancer Support Centre will be hosting a unique costume ball on Saturday 10th March 2018, with a three course dinner, entertainment, singer, DJ, disco, raffle and auction, to raise funds for people affected by cancer. 

The event is based on one of the region’s most glamorous historic events, when, in 1828, generous philanthropists of the North West attended an extravagant costume ball to raise money for local charity. Prominent citizens at the 19th Century celebration included the Lord Mayor, MPs, industrial magnates and the Home Secretary Robert Peel. The scene was captured by artist Arthur Perigal and is a social record of the ‘cream of Manchester society’.  [more info]

Prezzo Paying The Price?
Fresh after the news that Jamie's Italian and Byron are to close a series of branches, high street stalwart Prezzo are also facing a 'financial restructure' with some of its 262 nationwide branches rumoured to close.  Fuelled by rising labour costs, Brexit-inflated produce supply price increases and the related squeeze on consumer spending, the heavily saturated casual dining market in Manchester is set for a very tough year ahead, based on early indications.
