Harvey Nichols Second Floor Brasserie

21 New Cathedral Street, MANCHESTER, M1 1AD

1 rosettes

The Harvey Nics restaurant at the Manchester store is to be found on the second floor, and has the house style familiar from Dublin to Knightsbridge, with the signature emphasis on chic. The leather and wire seats are a triumph of comfort over visual aesthetics, and the pale pastel palette does nothing to detract from the bird's-eye views of the city-centre's heritage architecture. Once, the presumption was all for regional French offerings, but the team in the kitchen cook on-trend renditions of global reference dishes, dressing seared tuna with wasabi, carrot and ginger, garnishing a starter portion of rabbit with sweetcorn purée and pancetta, and then spreading their wings at main course to produce precision-timed lemon sole with wild mushroom risotto and artichoke barigoule, or turning out lamb in three guises - braised shoulder, rump and sweetbreads - alongside smooth, herb-flecked mash. To finish, there could be properly fragile vanilla pannacotta with rhubarb and ginger, or the crowd-wowing show-stopper of silky chocolate mousse, espresso espuma and hazelnut shortbread.
