The Manchester Reform Club, once the haunt of Liberal politicians like Gladstone and Lloyd George, has been given a new lease of life as a brasserie. The 19th-century, building is on King Street. Reform (0161 839 9966) offers Modern European cuisine. Also worth a visit in Manchester is Sarasota (0161 236 3766) on Canal Street - the city's first roof-top eaterie. Doing the Fusion cooking is Lisa Walker, seemingly the city's first female head chef.
If you fancy a break from a hard day's shopping in the capital, Fortnum & Mason - the place where the Royals get their groceries - could have the answer. A Salmon & Champagne Bar opens next week on the mezzanine floor (0171 734 8040) - serving nothing but. Alternatively, Selfridges Food Hall last week launched the latest Yo! Sushi - all raw fish and conveyor belts.Reuse content
