You Can't Lose (May 2016)

Trusted Reviewer "Over the last few years some of the best dining experiences in the city have started to pop up in what you'd perhaps class as a somewhat usual location; inside a casino.  Thinking about it more realistically, it actually makes perfect sense though in truth.  On tap custom with the potential of vast sums of  money trading hands, plus you'll never know what time of day it is without any windows or clocks in sight.  Based on that alone, eating two dinners in one day is easily doable.  We do it often enough ourselves to understand the benefits.

Once inside, a great job has been done to split the dining room from the gaming table area, and on the whole, once you're seated it would be very easy to forget that you're not in a standalone restaurant.  There's good use of glass to mute the sound of chips, all set in a very modern Oriental feeling dining space.  It was modern, comfy, and did its job well. 

Fahrenheit Manchester -  Slow Braised Beef Croquettes

Food wise, we placed our bets with starters of Slow Braised Beef Croquettes (£6) and Pan Fried Scallops (£8).  The croquettes were robust and formed a proper starter, with no messing about flavour wise, or with portion size either.  Perhaps lacking in a sprinkle of Maldon, but the shallot puree and crispy onions did wonders for the roast beef innards. 

The Scallops were a treat for the eyes, were well cooked, with the classic pairing of chorizo giving things a real oomph.  The accompanying coriander risotto lacked a bit of texture and again seasoning, but there's no question that this was an enjoyable dish.  15 years ago, this caliber of food was being served in high end brasseries and even in one star Michelins.  Now you can get such wares in a casino, which speaks volumes for the upward rise of food, not just in our city, but generally across the foodie globe. 

Fahrenheit Manchester -  Steak Of The Month

Our starters were paired with 2 excellent glasses, picked from the impressive wine list, which included a zingy and refreshing Bona Vita Aussie Pinot Grigio (£4.20 a glass), and the sumptuous Luis Filipe Edwards Lot 24 Carmenere (£4.30 a glass), which is one of our favourite grapes.  A forgotten grape in many regions, very similar in profile to Shiraz and usually great value as Chile are one of the few places who work with it to any great degree these days.  Either way, it paired with the beef wonderfully.

For mains we went for Farenheit's Steak of the Month, which on this particular month was a mammoth 16oz Rump (£30), served with chips, grilled tomato, onion rings and 'Farenheit' sauce.  The steak was cooked perfectly pink using the kitchen's signature Josper Grill; essentially an indoor BBQ, reaching temperatures way beyond those which a conventional oven can achieve.  The result is a steak with a perfectly browned crust with no overcooking on the inside.  Now £30 may sound a lot for a steak, but this was almost 500g of quality beef with all the trimmings, so it was actually pretty good value in truth. 

We also went for the Roasted Chicken Supreme (£14), which was also spotlessly cooked, being accompanied with delicately presented, shaped confit chicken thigh, rich and silky bean puree, potato gratin, sauced with a side of veloute.  This was a plate which displayed some presentation flair and plenty of technical skill, so you'd be hard pressed not to enjoy it.  We absolutely did .

Fahrenheit Manchester -  Chicken Supreme

As we digested our savoury courses, pondering some puddings, we couldn’t help but notice whilst sat in our cozy booth that the dining room was occupied by a wide demographic of customers.  Some who were clearly just taking a break from the gambling, couples of dates, a hen party, regular customers who were familiar to the staff, amongst others.  It was a testament to the versatility of Farenheits's offering and fan base.

Chocolate Ganache Tart (£6) was an ideal way to end any chocoholic's meal.  Presentation was a touch haphazard to be fair, falling short of the previous courses in this area, but the flavours were all there, with well cooked pastry, rich, smooth ganache filling, and great sauce.  Strawberry Pavlova (£5) with chantilly cream and white chocolate sauce was perhaps more your bag if you prefer a lighter end to your meal though.  It was fresh, with good acidity to freshen up your taste buds, and rounded off the meal very well indeed. 
Fahrenheit Manchester -  Eton Mess

After the meal, we paid a visit to the roulette tables to ponder our dining experience and perhaps win a few quid in the process.  Now it's safe to say that the latter didn’t happen, but we did decide that eating at Farenheit was much less of a gamble than playing at the tables when you don’t have a clue what you're doing... like us.  Exciting presentation, good technique, good produce, well executed, and very decent value indeed.  Farenheit without question justifies itself as a dining destination in the city centre whether or not you're planning on visiting the casino side of things.

Head down to Genting Club for a flutter in the Farenheit dining room, even if a flutter at the tables isn't really your thing.  You can't lose. Restaurant Of Manchester (13/5/16 - visited on a Friday evening)
