Situated on a cobbled street in Manchester, Mana has a minimalist look with high ceilings and picture windows. Dramatic darkwood tables are unclothed and an open island-style kitchen is populated by chefs sending out some highly accomplished Nordic-influenced cooking. Multi-course menus deliver dishes that are highly technical, intelligent and masterfully constructed to balance flavours and textures, with fermentation and fire contributing to the skillset. There’s no formal starter/main/dessert format so expect to find the finest raw materials underpinning the numbered dishes of around 17 courses of varying sizes that change according to the seasons. It’s a blind tasting menu, but you might get to experience unpreserved caviar, sorrel and caramelised cream; fillets of blue mussel, garlic and saffron; 100% outdoor reared Dexter rib-eye, artichoke purée and leaf, dehydrated scallops and beeswax. Ending the culinary journey could be baked apples, brown butter and oregano.

About the area

Discover Greater Manchester

The Greater Manchester conurbation incorporates the towns of Bolton, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport and Wigan, and has the vibrant city of Manchester as its administrative headquarters.

Manchester was founded in Roman times, and developed during the 17th century as a textile town, becoming the centre of the English cotton industry. Its magnificent Victorian Gothic public buildings are reminders of Manchester’s prosperous heyday. The Manchester Ship Canal was completed in 1894, linking the Mersey with the sea and bringing ocean-going vessels into Manchester, enabling the city to compete with its rival, Liverpool.

The city of Manchester today is alive with a vibrant youth culture (it has England’s largest student population), a flourishing club scene, and a whole range of multi-cultural festivals and events. To take in the atmosphere, take a stroll around one of Britain’s largest Chinatowns, or wander down to Rusholme to take in the tempting aromas of curry houses and browse among the sari shops, Asian grocers and Indian sweet shops. The city is also home to the world’s longest-running soap opera – Coronation Street.
