March is a great month to try something new on the food front. There are restaurants opening all over the shop (Iberica, Hawksmoor, Hotel Football – to name but three) and the land is just starting to give up its first delights. Whet your appetite with three of the city’s finest supper clubs and festivals ahead of another tasty summer.
Seasons Eatings supper club at Trove
Manchester Wire is a big fan of Seasons Eatings (pictured) menus for small events held in various spaces but most typically at Trove in Levenshulme. This one is BYOB, and you can make new friends as you linger over delicately cooked duck and seasonal herbs. Four courses plus a welcome cocktail and Trove’s artisan bread.
