Not only is Soup Kitchen one of Manchester's best live music venues by night, but it also doubles-up as on of the Northern Quarter's best restaurants by day. Offering a seasonal menu of fresh goodies, you can enjoy anything from vegan borscht to light bites such as classic sarnies and, of course, a hearty soup.

Smart? Casual? Pizza? Grill? The very cool Tariff & Dale are ticking all our Northern Quarter eating out boxes. Set in a historic building, the space draws on its industrial history with exposed brick walls and steel columns, while the menu goes from sourdough pizzas through to mains such as crispy pork belly with a scotch egg.
