We Risk Our Lives In Service

I love Matthew Norman’s restaurant reviews but in this week’s review – of The Modern at the top of Urbis – he provides perhaps his most memorable description yet:

If the selling point is the view, the one flaw there is that the view is over central Manchester. I love this city, but Florence, Manhattan or Sydney it is not. From my table, the vista of the cathedral dwarfed by the spectacularly hideous Premier Inn suggested Andrew Neil towering over Natalie Portman at a drinks party.
