- What is it good for?
A very modern - well you've seen the name - glass building in the heart of Manchester. Trendy and sophisticated, it makes you, and your clients, feel on top of the world. The attentive staff and views mean you can feel inspired and concentrate on the work in hand.
- Signature dishes
Baked heritage beetroot is a great signature dish. It looks dainty, but has masses of taste. For the vegetarian, the main dish of homity pie is filling, while for the carnivores, the salt beef potato cake is highly recommended.
- Who's the boss?
The Modern is part of registered charity Millennium Quarter Trust, so eating here is good for you and the local community.
- Tips please?
Enjoy a quick pre-meal drink on the sixth floor, with great views over Manchester Cathedral. Once the National Football Museum moves in below, this is sure to become more popular.
- What's the damage?
The special lunch menu has two courses at £12 and three courses at £15.
