2 Tony Wilson Place, Manchester M15 4FN
Lunch, Bank Holiday Monday 27th August, 2018 2.00pm
Since HOME opened in 2015, 1.8 million people have already visited, to see thrilling theatre and dance shows, experience great independent films from across the world, dive into the new art in their galleries, relax in the café and browse their bookshop.
As a registered charity, they rely on the generosity of members, supporters, trusts and foundations to help them bring their work to life, share it with the widest possible audience and keep their ticket prices affordable, this makes it possible for them to create a HOME for people of all ages and backgrounds, including the communities on our doorstep and Manchester’s next generation of creative talent. Everyone is welcome.
I have watched many films at HOME and part of the attraction is the fabulous first floor restaurant, they have a great menu with lots of vegan and vegetarian options. We were booked in for a film at 3.35pm so popped in for a late lunch. Even though it was a Bank Holiday and we hadn't booked we got a table for two no problem, there is always a great atmoshphere here (and in the Cafe Bar downstairs too!). The staff are always friendly, helpful and happy to discuss dietary requirements.
Unfortunately, as it was a Bank Holiday, they had run out of the Spiced Butternut Squash & Spinach Lasagne - Taleggio, mozzarella, rocket & gran moravia salad, garlic bread (£10.25) AND the Wild Mushroom & Puy Lentil Shepherd’s Pie - Savoy champ mash, smoked cheddar, mushy peas (vegan option available) (v, gf) £10.25
So, I opted for the Roast Cauliflower & Hazelnut Tagliatelle - Thyme, cream, gran moravia (v) £10.25 which was absolutely delicious, not sure the photo is doing it any favours! I've eaten the Superfood Buddha Bowl many times in the past, its a favourite packed with red & white quinoa, broccoli, avocado, peas, feta, kale, cucumber, seeds, alfalfa, fresh herbs, maple syrup & wholegrain mustard dressing.
