The Living Room Manchester

Another of Manchester's all rounder edibles, The Living Room not only fare rather well with their British offering, but they take a dash at many a selection of European cities, all in the confines of a luxurious dining room. From roasted rump of lamb and gressingham chicken, to a deluxe seafood linguine and more-ish mussels, The Living Room are a dapper dinner destination through and through.

If you've even looked at Manchester on a map, you've heard of Crazy Pedro's. Their part-time pizza parlour serves up pies topped with the, uh, craziest ingredients around, with everything from chocolate to cornflakes going on their ever-changing ingredients list. They also serve up some mean cocktails, too, if you fancy it.  

Sandinista

While their cocktails are Cuban, their tapas is all Spanish, offering up a variety of classic small plates, as well as Mexican specialities like tacos, fajitas, chilli and nachos. But that's not the only reason people come here anyway: the bar comes alive at the weekends, with DJs playing the best in rock, punk, soul and more until the early hours.

Rosso

Sure, Rosso is famous for its proud footie proprietor Rio Ferdinand, but there's not just a celebrity status to be found in the midst of this opulent restaurant bar. While the menu is ultimately international, Rosso's Italian offering is both delicious and deluxe. From artisan meats and salted beef with grana padano, to Sicilian antipasto and fresh hand-made fettuccine, this is as close as you'll get to a bespoke Italian restaurant in Manchester.
