Review on Restaurant MCR

Chef/patron Aiden Byrne, who previously owned Manchester House with Living Ventures which closed in October 2018, has relaunched the restaurant a couple of months later as Restaurant MCR. Situated in the Spinningfields area of Manchester, described by many as the 'Canary Wharf' of the North, its located within Tower 12.

The venture is very much part and parcel of the vibrancy and character of the area, with the restaurant set on the second floor. The interiors of the 76 cover restaurant have been designed by Keane Brands, dominated by the open plan kitchen costing £500,000, it's decked out in a neutral palette featuring an eclectic mix of furnishings, with the giant metal cotton sculptures reflecting Manchester's industrial past.

Byrne who was the youngest ever recipient to receive a prestigious Michelin star and was a one-time holder of two stars at London's Dorchester Grill, already operates the successful Church Green restaurant in Lymm. At Restaurant MCR he proposes two tasting menus of either 6 or 12 courses underpinned by impeccable local ingredients. Expect innovative ideas along the lines of crisp chicken skin, crab, sorrel, and gold rush apple juice or snails with grilled lettuce, razor clam and Rioja, while desserts give a nod to the area with a Manchester tart served with coffee.
