Food: Grafene Three Course Menu Review, Manchester

Review: What Emma Did

Grafene Restaurant Manchester What Emma did 2018
Here we go again: Manchester’s foodie has been out and about again in search for a unique and delicious menu to rave about. And it looks like I found it, this time in the form of Grafene’s new 3 course menu. But wait for it – it comes with bread ‘and surprises’…

That got you listening. If you read What Emma Did regularly you may be remembering that I reviewed Grafene not too long ago, and I was ridiculously thrilled with the place. But that was a different menu. That was their British Tapas Menu, which you can Menu, which you can read about here…

This time around, I was returning to Grafene to check out their 3 course menu, which has recently had some new additions added by chef Ben Mounsey, capturing his best of British Summer flavours.

The menu keeps with his acclaimed style for modern, reconstructed classics, along with dishes brimming with twists to the usual flavours.

What I was excited to see was the dishes being presented with his trade mark of high creativity and complexity, yet also with careful simplicity. I feel it adds to the whole dining out experience when your plates are situated in front of you, boasting an impressive presentation.

WIN dinner for two at Grafene with a tea pairing – plus a year’s supply of tea

MEN Competition – Win a three course meal at Grafene

With expertly paired teas from Pure Leaf, as well as a year’s supply of tea and a premium teaware set.

Pure Tea competition with the MEN

City centre restaurant Grafene is partnering with Pure Leaf – and to celebrate they’re giving away a three-course meal for two, expertly paired with premium teas.

Pairing wine with food is an age-old tradition, but tea pairings are the latest trend on the food scene and one that Grafene is championing.

Head chef Ben Mounsey, who took over at the King Street restaurant earlier this year, has teamed up with tea sommelier Joyce Muendo to craft the perfectly paired limited-edition menu.

Dishes will include buttermilk-infused ceps with soy, truffle and buttermilk, paired with Pure Leaf Green Tea with Jasmine.
