The Modern Restaurant Urbis
The Modern is a sleek and sophisticated drinking and dining experience located at the top of one of Manchester’s most iconic buildings, Urbis.
Situated on floors 5 and 6, the Modern enjoys a level of elevation, tranquillity and peace, presenting stunning panoramic views of the city skyline.

The restaurant has the capacity to seat 60 diners and serves regional dishes, presented seasonally, making the best use of local suppliers and producers.

Head chef Paul Falkner has put together an exemplary menu, operating a back to basics approach with a modern sensibility, focusing on Northern roots and the cooking techniques of Northern England.
The Modern endeavour to only serve the best produce, locally sourced where possible and presented seasonally. All their meat is selected for its traceability and regional provenance, showing belief in their suppliers and the farming techniques they practice.
A prix-fixe menu is available daily, both at lunchtimes and early evening. The selection of quick dishes makes it ideal for lunch breaks and pre-show meals, with the MEN Arena located next door and the Royal Exchange Theatre just a few metres away.

The Modern Restaurant Reviews
"The automatic door slid open and a sign indicated to take the lift to the 6th floor. It was all very James Bond. Secret doorways, instructions to follow, lonely elevators and chic 60's style signage. The decor is wonderful, very stylish, plain yet modern, well spaced tables and intimate lighting which is complimented by the wonderful view. We opted for the table overlooking the big wheel and cathedral.
The menu is impressive - a great collection of locally influenced dishes at a reasonable price. The Grilled Goosnagh Maize Fed Chicken was the best I've tasted outside of a Michelin star restaurant in the UK. Even with the side order of Fat Cut Chips this was outstanding value for money. With pre-theatre menu's offering even better value for money, you have to applaud Urbis for moving The Modern away from the snobbery associated with it's predecessor, Le Mont.
The Modern has the advantage of being next to the MEN Arena, the main shopping area, The Printworks and the Royal Exchange Theatre. It is certainly one of the best dining destinations in Manchester!" - (Dec 2007)
