At Too Many Critics, the tables are turned on some of the North West’s top restaurant critics and food writers – including yours truly – asking them to prepare an exclusive dinner to be judged by guests, including some of the North’s finest chefs and restaurateurs.
In association with Northern Restaurant & Bar 2020, the Too Many Critics event will be returning to Manchester on Monday 16th March 2020. This year it will be held at one of Manchester’s newest hangouts, Cultureplex. With an evolving, seasonal, menu, Cultureplex offers uncomplicated good food, drink and service with common sense and good taste.
Critics are put through their paces to create delicious fare
This year, guests will be welcomed with a Champagne Taittinger reception, before the critics are put through their paces to create delicious fare. Guests will also have the opportunity to bid on a host of exclusive experiences and items in a series of Live and Silent Auctions.
For anyone wanting to stay in Manchester afterwards, or attending NRB20, Native are offering an exclusive discount for attendees of the event, from Monday to Wednesday. Based in the same grade II listed, former railway warehouse as Cultureplex, Native provides a range of luxury serviced apartments, from studios to a palatial two-bedroom duplex penthouse apartment.
All funds raised on the night will go towards Action Against Hunger’s charity work to provide malnourished children with healthier futures in nearly 50 countries worldwide.
