Food and fizz at Simon's restaurant

Date published: 13 March 2018

Wood Manchester and C&O Wines are coming together to create an evening of fine dining and fizz at Chadderton MasterChef champion Simon Wood’s restaurant on Wednesday, March 28.

Wood Manchester will create a unique four-course menu which will be seamlessly paired with a selection of delicious wines and champagnes from Louis Roederer including one of the world’s most famous champagnes, Cristal.

Cristal was first created for Alexander II in 1876. As Russia became less stable and Alexander feared death, he commanded that his Champagne be bottled clear and with a flat bottom, in order to ensure no bombs were placed beneath the bottles.

Cristal is only produced in the best vintages in the Champagne region. In the last decade, only 2006, 2007, and 2009 have been released.

The evening's menu will begin with an amuse bouche of Waldorf crackers, followed by red mullet escabeche paired with a pink fizz to start.  

The restaurant will then serve a fish course of pistachio crusted halibut matched with the worldwide acclaimed Cristal. For the main course, diners can enjoy beef topped with horseradish which will be served with a Bordeaux.

For the finale guest will be treated to a dessert of peach and basil served with a Demi-Sec, a medium sweet champagne.

The event will start at 7.30pm with a champagne reception in the bar followed by dinner in the restaurant’s private dining room The Den from 8pm.

Tickets are £90 and only 18 places are available so booking is advised.
