The first Manchester foray for D&D London sits atop the new No.1 Spinningfields skyscraper. Sitting at 100 metres it is the city's highest restaurant and boasts a rooftop garden terrace, from which spectacular views are likely a given. Brian Hughson has been named as head chef, replacing Aiden Byrne who has left the project to re-launch Manchester House.
Harden's survey result
“A beautiful space filled with beautiful people (yes, Manchester has them too!)” – D&D London’s 19th-floor newcomer at the top of No 1 Spinningfields, “has stunning views of the city and a soundtrack to match” (and also a “fabulous outside terrace”). But “as well as being a see-and-be-seen destination, it’s a genuinely great restaurant”, and although the odd doubter feels “it’s not sure what it’s trying to be, top class restaurant or destination bar” or says “its London backers have brought London prices to Manchester” – on most accounts Aiden Byrne’s “very accessible” cuisine is repeating the success he found at Manchester House. STOP PRESS: In November 2018, just as it was all going so well, it was announced that Aiden Byrne has stepped down, for reasons that are not yet clear.
