About Damson

Description brought to you by Manchester Confidential:

Damson is among of Manchester’s best neighbourhood restaurants. Cosier than a DFS showroom, the interior is all gold and claw feet, damson-coloured walls and tasty white linen. Go for broke with vegetarian or Damson tasting menus to experience the roving creations with French standards at their core; Stanley did study under Pierre White and Blanc after all. Poached monkfish with curry butter, mushroom arancini, lime pickle foam and spiced apricot purée, is a particularly eclectic example – but one which works. Elsewhere slow-cooked duck egg, with smoked pancetta crumb and Old Winchester fondue or home-cured ‘duck ham’, honey pickled vegetable salad and shaved foie gras showcase a classic French attention to detail. Desserts might include lime cheese cake with cardamom crumble or salted caramel tart and chocolate sorbet. Local suppliers include WH Frost butchers. Pilling was a former partner at the Victorian Chophouse group, well-known for its cellars and the trend continues here. There’s another, more spacious branch overlooking the ship canal next to BBC HQ in Media City.

Critics Review
Review by Manchester Confidential's Jonathan Schofield
17.5/20
The starter star was the spring green vegetable and herb risotto with chervil cream (£6.95), the eating of which was like walking through an English country garden in a dream sequence. It was a Merchant Ivory movie set in a Home Counties mansion in 1911. In rice-form. It was wholesome and joyful at the same moment set off by that sharp and tangy chervil cream. Risotto can be a byword for dreariness; not this one.
