Harden's says

A Manchester follow-up to Soho's “cool little haven” Randall & Aubin, whose “proper fruits de mer” have been delighting our reporters for over a decade. The northern outpost opened on the site of a former furniture store in May.

“Still good despite recent changes”: this Spinningfields spin-off from London’s foodie hub shares the “metropolitan”, “fin de siècle” style of the original – “with high tables and bar stools” – and is still “an ‘in’ place to eat”, having been bought out of administration in 2018 by founders Ed Baines and Jamie Poulton. It’s famous for its “brilliant seafood” (“oysters are especially lovely, as are the lobsters”) but the “eclectic menu” roams beyond the sea – and “even ‘ordinary’ dishes are done with flair”.

“So pleased R&A have expanded to Manchester, bringing their Soho class, ambience and quality of food here”“wonderfully fresh seafood” is “served professionally in a very chilled bar and dining room” at this “Cosmopolitan-feeling” venture in Spinningfields: the spin-off from the well-known London foodie hotspot. A franchise, though it attracted lots of ‘bums on seats’, it hit well-publicised financial problems in mid-2018, and was bought out of receivership by the original founders Ed Baines and Jamie Poulton, with a view to turning it around commercially.

Summary

Manchester follow-up to Soho’s “fun-and-frisky” seafood specialist, whose “so-fresh” fruits de mer have been delighting our reporters for over a decade. The northern outpost opened on the site of a former Spinningfields furniture store in May 2017.
