Manchester Celebrity Restaurants

Sometimes we all wake up and feel we need a little star attention. Whether you're just wanting to treat yourself, see how the other half dine, or generally just enjoy keeping up with the hottest joints, we've complied a list of the best celebrity-spotting and celeb-owned restaurants in Manchester to tick off your list - think tapas, rooftop haunts and eateries from TV chefs.

Peter Street Kitchen

Set Menu 3 Plates £28 and 6 other offers

A fine dining beauty mixing Mexican and Japanese fare, Peter Street Kitchen is one unique (and gorgeous) restaurant that's sure to attract a star or two. Not only can you nab luxury food like wagyu beef tataki with black truffle ponzu, Hamachi tartare and meat sizzling on hot lava stones, but those sleek neutral interiors are ideal to pop on Insta.

Tast Catala

If you were looking for Pep Guardiola's joint on our list, you best believe we included it. With a focus on (naturally) Spanish cuisine, Tast Catala has brought flavours of Barcelona to King Street. Choose between Catalan-style rice with pork ribs, wild seabass or sirloin steak and a range of small plates.

WOOD Manchester

MasterChef's Simon Wood has further made a name for himself with his eponymous fine dining restaurant, WOOD. There's a £25 lunch menu (including three dishes each and a glass of wine) if you fancy celeb-quality dining on a budget, or the a la carte spans everything from venison T-bone to maitake mushroom glazed with 20-year old aged mirin.

Mana

After Michelin star restaurants in Manchester? Mana is the only one with that title, and so it's no surprise that it attracts celebs and ordinary folk alike. Admire the Scandi space while tucking into tasting menus from Simon Martin, former chef at the world-class Danish restaurant NOMA.

Vermilion

Vermillion and its sister cocktail lounge, Cinnabar, are ideal for the VIP treatment - and only a stone's throw from the Etihad as well. See your favourite footie stars at a game or hope to spot them at this gorgeous venue, which is serving a Pan-Asian menu from MasterChef finalist Bobby Geetha.

Menagerie

Pretty in pink and with plenty more to offer besides, Salford's Menagerie has been popular with everyone from WAGs to Real Housewives of Cheshire and other celebs too. Head here for bottomless brunches, supper clubs and Sunday roasts, alongside spicy miso salmon or truffle ravioli off the a la carte menu.

Bar San Juan

A Spanish restaurant in Manchester for celebrities, Bar San Juan is unassuming on first look. It's cosy and traditional, with a handful of tables inside and out in Chorlton. Having been hailed as the city's best tapas by Michelle Keegan on James Acaster and and Ed Gamble's Off Menu podcast, this place has to be visited to be believed - trust us.
