I am a huge fan of Italian food, especially pasta! Recently I’ve been cooking more whilst being at home and one thing I love is Pasta! When I found out about Pasta Evangelists, which I discovered a while back whilst watching Dragons Den, I was looking forward to trying it out. It’s a delivery service of 5* pasta dishes across the UK, including sauces and garnishes sourced from Italy. Who wouldn’t want fresh pasta delivered to their door with easy to cook and restaurant quality! They change their dishes weekly and you can select from 10 different dishes.
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.
Eating out in Manchester is one of my favourite things to do on a weekend, however my first choice of restaurant certainly wouldn’t have been Dive in the Northern Quarter just because I didn’t even know they served food! When Zumu Street opened as a pop up restaurant serving Asian inspired street food I was keen to try it out as I love Japanese food and had heard great things about this place. I have to admit that it was one of the best sushi places I’ve visited in Manchester and a little hidden gem.
Grand Pacific has been around a few years now, housed in the renowned Grade II listed Manchester Reform Club building at the top of Manchester’s King Street. I visited back in 2017 when it was taken over by the Living Venture Group, you can read about my experience here, however this time I visited Grand Pacific as they have launched an amazing new menu with seasonal dishes to complement the Summer months. The restaurant dines approx 120 guests with beautiful interior design, opulent decor and an impressive bar inspired by Raffles Hotel in Singapore. The menu has plenty of choice for all tastes which includes both English classics and dishes with an exotic twist. Many of the dishes on the menu haven’t changed including the sushi bowl and the chicken skewers, just a few new additions to give it a refresh for the Summer.
