For dependable, modern British dining, the simply-named Northern Quarter Restaurant is worth a punt. Sitting opposite the former Smithfields Market, chef Anthony Fielden has devised a menu that focuses on local, seasonal produce that delivers dishes that are muscular and confident. It is an approach that clearly works – the eatery has won numerous awards as well as the hearts of local food critics.
