Michael O'Hare's Michelin-starred restaurant is on the move
Housewives favourite Michael O’Hare has revealed his plans to move his Michelin-starred flagship restaurant Man Behind The Curtain
The current location - above posh blokes' clothes shop Flannels - is a trademark of the restaurant's idiosyncratic personality, but it’s now moving to a regular old ground floor plot...in the same building.
The 6,000 sq ft ground level is twice the size of Curtain's current lodgings upstairs, allowing room for a separate bar area (staffed by elusive non-sleazy barmen, hopefully) and a bigger reception area.
The dining room is keeping the same amount of covers (forty) - presumably because if you’re not prepared to wait 8 months for a table then you don’t deserve one. There will be additional seating at the chef’s table, where diners can bask in the warm glow of the O'Hare's personality, as well as his BacoFoil apron.
Before the big move, The Man Behind The Curtain will be heading to Hong Kong for a week-long residency at the Mandarin Oriental hotel. O’Hare’s also planning two more Manchester restaurants before the end of 2017 - 'The Man Who Fell To Earth', an homage to grand Parisienne dining rooms, and an open-kitchen, kitchen table style restaurant called 'Are Friends Electric' - after a famous Gary Numan record.
