Manchester Is England’s Most Exciting Food City

In the 1980s, Manchester was a post-industrial city of urban decay and rampant crime. So it is exhilarating to report that today, Manchester is thriving with new hotels and a brilliant food scene. It's no accident that Manchester just won its first Michelin star in 40 years. Here are five of the city's best spots. The Stock Exchange Hotel hosts The Bull and the Bear, serving comfort classics on the old trading floor. Native Manchester embraces the new "aparthotel" trend in a former cotton warehouse. The Manchester outpost of the popular London cafe, Dishoom, opened in the former Masonic Hall. Spirit of Manchester and Three Little Words take full advantage of the brass and Italian marble in the distillery they both call home. Gary Usher opened Kala Bistro just months after breaking a crowdfunding record: £100,000 in just 11 hours.
