I'm looking for a right classy restaurant in central Manchester, to which I can take m'lovely wife on the evening of our 10th wedding anniversary next week. Nowhere too haughty, you understand, or prohibitively overpriced. I'm thinking fetchingly sophisticated with an air of accessible grandeur.

If you're not vegerarian, and fancy an excellent steak I can recommend the Gaucho Grill.

I need new glasses.
Should have wondered about Polish restaurants in Manchester

Cafe Lech's shut down. That was a decent Polish restaurant.

I'd have suggested Juniper too, but as you're a bloody hippie then I'm at a total loss as to what to suggest.

Greens in Didsbury, Simon Rimmer's haunt, is excellent, but a cab ride (or 42 bus) out.

I would underline Dalliance idea, Juniper is quite an experience and I'm sure they'll cater for you wonderfully Easy.

Simply Heathcote in town centere is quite good, went there once and I enjoyed it.

The Market Restaurant in the Northern Quarter is a lovely place, deligthfully quaint 40's atmosphere and excellent food.

Oh, just the music and decoration really, the food is very much up to date too.

Mulberry Tree outside Wigan is well worth the visit says my missus btw.

The restaurant above Harvey Nicks is good. Slightly pricey, but good. If I do get an evening up in Manchester, it's usually first choice of restaurants.

There's also a pub not far from Deansgate which do the best Steak puddings (not pies) in the world. If anyone can furnish me with the name of that place, I'd be eternally grateful.

That's probably Mr Thomas' Chop House on Cross Street. Market Tavern is a very good recommendation, as is Juniper although it's a major hike if you've to get a train home afterwards. Isinglass in Urmston is also excellent and has just the atmosphere you're looking for but it's 15 minutes by cab from town.

God yes, Isinglass, but going there as a wedgie would be such a waste.

The missus also reminds me of the restaurant in the Urbis centre.

I've yet to try Isinglass but I've been told many good things about it. I wonder if gourmet regional OTFers ought to organise a little trip there...?

Yuri, it's splendid. The charcouterie plate I devoured a week or so ago was heaven, there was a dried mutton 'ham' (I suppose) that was just amazing.

Mmmmmm...I've got a few places to try out at the moment. My missus also assures me that Carluccio's at the Trafford Centre is worth the visit (their risotto is nearly as good as mine she says, high praise indeed!)
