Hawksmoor, Manchester.

I'm not sure I really like industrial styled restaurant interiors, I think they may look dated in a few years. I much prefer classic design like Hawksmoor in Manchester. It must be one of the most successful interior designs in our city. It feels like it's been there decades rather than eighteen months and it suits their food so well, it's such a beautiful room with such great natural light.
On this occasion we skipped the steak at lunchtime and went for a selection of starters, sharing it all like tapas. The Steak Tartare is a classic dish from this restaurant, I'd personally prefer less capers in my tartar as I want to taste the fresh flavour of the beautiful product which is lost a little.
Since our last visit they've added onions to the Bone Marrow which works well although I'd still prefer it without.
Potted Beef and Yorkshires is enjoyable too, especially when you fill the Yorkshire Pudding with the lovely gravy. Rib Mac and Cheese is I think and exclusive Manchester dish, I loved it, that molten cheese crust with the meaty filling, fabulous.
We loved Hawksmoor when it opened (see here) and still do, it's now an established Manchester classic.
Lunch cost two of us £45 with soft drinks.
