Restaurant Wars - the Battle for Manchester
Series starts on BBC2 on Monday and will follow Aiden Byrne and Simon Rogan setting up their new restaurants in the city.
I've set up a thread on the Food Media & News board where, I presume, the mods will prefer us to have discussion about the programme. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/972151
And, I also presume, they'll be happy for us to discuss the actual restaurants - the Midland French and Manchester House - here.
FWIW, I've eaten at both:
Both of my passions (food and the Great War) are being very well served by TV at the minute. Almost too well served - there seems little time to watch anything else.
That said, if you record the programmes you can whizz through the "packing" in both Masterchef and Great British Menu ( the latter being a 30 minute a week programme, stretched to 2 hours). I'll watch all of next week's GBM, as it's the north west heat, but then I'll get back to just watching the judging programme.
