When Franco, owner of Solita in the Northern Quarter was looking for locations for a second restaurant in the suburbs, I was hoping he'd come to Chorlton. In hindsight Didsbury was much better for them if not for us. You only have to look at the expensive cars driving around here to see that there's so much more money knocking about. Franco already reported that people actually spend more money than the original restaurant and have introduced a fully computerised booking system to cope. They're already fully booked this weekend as I write this on Friday afternoon.
I was asked to come and photograph a few new specials and took the opportunity to shoot the impressive interior too. I love the neon cow which in recent weeks must be the most photographed cow in Manchester. Also the giant SOLITA letters and of course the fantastic illustrations by local artist Stanley Chow. It looks like Solita in Didsbury will be another big success story because they give people what they want.
