Harden's survey result
“A taste of France in Manchester’s Northern Quarter” and thus sticking out a touch amid the burger and pizza joints, the Moreau family’s classy brasserie relocated to this larger, more prominent site two years back; by all accounts it offers Gallic cooking “at its best” and ably accompanied by “fine wines”.
The Moreau family’s “so very classical” Northern Quarter outfit is a bit of a “Marmite restaurant” – “over-ambitious” to some, pleasing to others. It moved from nearby Church St in early 2016, and the jury is also out on the roomier new locale; initial reports suggest that it “needs to be full to work”, or risks feeling “like a morgue”.
Limited commentary of late on the Moreau family’s “tucked away venture in the Northern Quarter”, although all of it – even critical reports – thought the modern French cuisine was good. In early 2016, it moved just a stone’s throw from its original site on Church Street to a bigger, more prominent, two-storey building on the corner of Edge Street and High Street (hence for the time being we’ve left it unrated).
“They take their ingredients and cooking very seriously” at the Moreau family's Northern Quarter Gallic restaurant, and the results from the “nicely judged tasting menus” can be “simply fabulous”; the “fascinating” French wine list also attracts praise.
