Respond to Review of Bistro 1847 - City Centre
Review: I went here with my wife for a nice romantic evening. The restaurant is located on the edge of China town, near Manchester Gallery and the gay village. It's easy to get to by bus or tram, but I expect parking could be a bit tricky at times as the area is quite busy. The decor is modern and sophisticated, without being in your face. We were there at 9:30 on a Friday, it was busy but there were available tables. With 6 starters and 6 mains there is a good choice. I had the salt and pepper tofu, with wasabi, satay and soy sauce. Mrs g'n't had the halumi lolly pops with salsa. Both were excellent. For the mains I had the broad bean and leak pie. This was a decent size portion, with summer veg and a red wine reduction. My wife had savory scones with mushroom ragu. Again this was a decent size portion, with some interesting mushrooms, (not your standard button mushrooms) and asparagus. The desert menu looked good, but we had no room. Perhaps next time? The staff were attentive without being intrusive. Overall a good, higher end, veggie and vegan friendly restaurant.
