But the very best thing? Manchester's discerning diners are lapping up these new restaurants, filling tables with the kind of fervour that bodes well for new openings - be they big launches with all the publicity in the world to those sterling new cheap eats relying on word of mouth. We've put together a list - both just opened and coming soon - that we deem definitely worthy of keeping an eye one, so take a look and check them out. And remember to let us know your thoughts - we're all ears.
