Manchester is fast becoming one of UK’s hottest restaurant markets. The unprecedented population growth in the city’s suburbs has brought with it a separate and continuous wave of new eateries, both familiar chains and increasing numbers of top destination restaurants. Fahrenheit Genting Club is a definite must-visit for all foodies, situated on Portland Street and only a 10-minute walk from the Northern Quarter.
The cool laidback ambience of eating in a casino creates a unique dining experience that is bound to impress and surprise. Once your taste buds and senses have been teased by the smells and the great view provided by the magnificent open kitchen, you can rest assured you have discovered the destination of one of Manchester’s hidden gems.
The menu epitomises British cuisine, with a delicate mix of global influences throughout. The food emerging from the kitchen didn’t disappoint with the emphasis on cooking with the finest produce, and I must say the steak surpassed my expectations and was executed with precision and was devoid of extraneous elements on the plate. This meal was big, hearty, generous and honest, with crispy onion rings that are worthy of a mention (they were that good).
My dessert was everything my main wasn’t, a precision piece of gastronomic indulgence. The perfect cheesecake should be smooth and creamy, dense but not heavy, modest and simple and the white chocolate and vanilla cheesecake served to me was all this and more, the more being a tangy raspberry sorbet. Would highly recommend!
I ordered from the cocktail menu which offers an array of options including bellinis, martinis, mojitos, and my favourite the strawberry daiquiri which for any budding cocktail maker consists of Bacardi rum, strawberry liqueur and fresh strawberries.
My advice would be to forget any preconceived opinions of eating in a casino and book this restaurant for a truly great experience, and once you’ve enjoyed eating you could always try your luck at the roulette table.
