A slice of the Seine in Manchester, this family-run French restaurant really knows its onions.
In the hipster packed Northern Quarter, you can find a little bit of Paris in the shape of family-run restaurant 63 Degrees. Florence, Eric and Alexandre Moreau have left the glamour of their hometown to bring a taste of the French capital to Manchester.
63 Degrees are proud wine-lovers, believing that wine is an integral part of the overall dining experience. The wine list has a careful balance between quality and variety, handpicking some of the finest bottles from the great wine regions of France (of course).
If you dine on a Tuesday evening you could sample the 'five course tasting menu’, which at just £25 is a steal of epic proportions – akin to taking the Mona Lisa from the Louvre (almost). The a la carte menu is plentiful and varied, featuring chef/dad Eric's signature dishes: tartare de bar de ligne au yuzu (line caught sea bass tartare with yuzu); sphère tout chocolat, aux fruits rouges (chocolate orb with red fruits); and cylindre de volaille farci 63 degrés, feuilleté de pomme de terre (63° stuffed chicken cylinder and potato in puff pastry). The chicken, cooked low and slow at 63 degrees to create tender and incomparable tastes, is not only impressive, but gives the restaurant its name, too.
Service is efficient, friendly and not too fussy, mirroring the stylish laid-back approach to life in France. The Moreau family have certainly brought a little bit a Parisian charm to Manchester.
