Today we went to Damson. Never been before and we chose it as it is close to The Lowry and we were off to a matinee performance after lunch. What a great choice it turned out to be. The décor is beautiful, we sat near the huge windows looking out over the water and watched the people buzzing about in the autumn sunshine. The food, ah, the food. To.die.for.
We ended up ordering off the a la carte menu as it was a special occasion and my friend particularly wanted one of the fish dishes. The food was sublime. I had lamb which was perfect and my friend was cooing over her cod. The best, as they always say, was yet to come. I wanted to marry my dessert. Chocolate and Peanut Butter Vacherin with chocolate fudge sauce. Go now before they change the menu! It was fantastic, my favourite dessert EVER! The whole meal was lovely - not huge portions so don't take your rugby playing mates but the flavours and presentation is perfect. They do a reasonable two courses for £17 a head. Our bill came to £76 for two of us, with one large glass of red wine and a large bottle of water. Worth every penny. We loved it and will definitely be going again. Oh, by the way, the staff are lovely too. Going to the Lowry? Or Media City? Drop in on Damson. Lets keep this great independent restaurant alive. http://mediacity.damsonrestaurant.co.uk/index.html
