With all American favorites on the menu, including the most epic burgers, lobsters, and mac n’ cheese, The Blues Kitchen will have your tummy singing a happier tune. Everything about the lunch was perfect: the cuisine, the service, and the beverages. To begin, we got chicken wings (the most incredible wings I’ve ever eaten) and ribs, both of which were delicious. My companion selected a wonderfully cooked steak, and I had the shrimp salad and mac & cheese, all of which were fantastic.
We were so thrilled with the experience that we stayed all night for drinks and even relocated to the bar, where there was live music and more cocktails. All night, cocktails were £5!!! I can’t wait to return to eat even more of the delectable cuisine – thank you for the most lovely night blues restaurant! What a great new addition to the Manchester scene! The food and drinks were excellent – I had the BBQ ribs, which were perfectly cooked and full of flavor. It’s £5 cocktails on Wednesdays too, so I tried a delicious pear old-fashioned and an espresso martini. Service was also excellent; everyone was polite and attentive. There was a mix-up with one dish not arriving, and the manager came over to apologize, even though we weren’t unhappy. The portions were so generous we were glad the universe reduced ours over ordering!
