Manchester - lunch

I am taking my (student) sister out for lunch in Manchester on Sunday and would like to take her somewhere relaxed but stylish which would feel like a treat for her.

I am only in the city for three hours or so, so somewhere near the station (Piccadilly) would be ideal but is not essential.

All suggestions gratefully received.

  1. The Market restaurant would be my pick. It's a quick walk from Piccadilly, on High Street in the Northern Quarter. Sophisticated but relaxed, very European, small menu but excellent, eclectic food. http://www.market-restaurant.com/

    Another option would be the new restaurant at the top of Urbis, The Modern. I haven't been there but have heard good things. Not too far from Piccadilly either, at Cathedral Square. http://www.themodernmcr.co.uk/
