As you know I love to eat out and try new restaurants which is why when Harvey Nichols invited me back to try out their new Winter A’La Carte Menu, I was really looking forward to it. I have visited the brasserie at Harvey Nichols last year and was impressed by the food that I decided it was time to try it out again, this time the new Winter menu. In the current situation we find ourselves in I understand no one will be eating out any time soon and my review took place well before Coronavirus became a pandemic. Maybe this is somewhere that you can add to your wish list when all of this is over and we can all go out again. One thing I like about this place is that it overlooks Cathedral Gardens in Manchester, one of the few restaurants with a great view and relaxing dining experience.

Beetroot spaghetti, homemade vegan feta cheese, hummus dressing The menu consists of winter warming foods including soup and spiced dishes with choice of both meat, fish and vegetarian. To start I tried the beetroot spaghetti, vibrant and pink, served with homemade vegan feta cheese which added the creaminess to the dish and a hummus dressing which was lovely. My husband tried the celeriac and hazelnut soup which was creamy and thick with lots of flavour. Celeriac and hazelnut soup, compressed appleFor the mains I decided to go for a tuna steak as it isn’t something I usually order when out and I am so glad I did. It was delicious and juicy, seasoned well, served with chips and a watercress salad. My husband went for the classic burger which you can’t go wrong with! A side of roasted parsnips were the perfect accompaniment to the dishes.Tuna steak and chipsTo finish we tried the white chocolate cheesecake served with poached clementines that was lovely and refreshing, with a citrus hit and not too sweet! My visit to Harvey Nichols Brasserie Manchester was a press visit, as always opinions are my own!
