Restaurants in Manchester are no stranger to the Good Food Guide so when its additions for 2023 were added this week, it’s no surprise we got to add another few of our best and brightest to the list.
Acting as an approachable guide for recommendations for food around the UK, the Good Food guide has been a source of inspiration for foodies since 1951. The prestigious yet convenient guide is updated on a yearly basis to recognise the best, new places to eat in the UK, not only by its team of inspectors and writers but also from its readers as well. So who made the cut this year? Well let’s find out.
The first new addition to the good food guide is the fabulous Another Hand, created by Chef Julian Pizer who had stints cooking over at the Edinburgh castle as well as slinging sandwiches at Three Hands Deli and has now settled with this project. Although the restaurant itself is slightly off the beaten track in Deansgate Mews, this restaurant proves location is not necessarily an indicator of quality as they achieved a ‘Very Good’ rating, a feat not easily done by restaurants added into the Good Food guide.
Next up we have Exhibitions own answer to Basque fire cookery; Baratxuri. Scoring a very respectable ‘Good’ this Basque style kitchen is serving up large cuts of meat, their famous Txuleton steaks and whole fish alongside smaller raciones such as Boquerones, Tortilla de Bilbao and Bacalao Pil Pil all the while taking advantage of Exhibition aesthetic dining space.
10 Tib Lane
Our final addition is the superb 10 Tib Lane, which also scored an impressive ‘good’ rating. This bar and restaurant has continued to build a fantastic reputation for itself since its inception with its intelligent approach and seasonal dishes. The guide itself described 10 Tib Lane as ‘beautifully crafted’ and ‘meticulously presented’ and we have to agree. A well-deserved addition for this well-respected establishment.
