1847 Manchester

A trendy restaurant located right in the centre of town that specialises in vegetarian and plant-based food mainly from local produce. This place definitely has the 'wow-factor' with innovative dishes that look as great as they taste. Probably best for a special occasion but lunch options are also available.
