A sweeping of snow has been forecast for Manchester this winter but it seems only one location has been announced so far… This winter, snowfall will dust the oriental paradise of Tattu in Spinningfields and the restaurant’s cherry blossoms will shimmer and sparkle alongside projections of the artic sky on the walls to create an immersive dining experience known as The Great Snow this festive season. And of course, there will be a winter-themed feast to accompany the magic.
From this November, Tattu will be bringing winter to Manchester minus the drop in temperature and allowing guests to step into an enchanted winter scene. Taking inspiration from the Northernmost provinces in China where snow-capped mountains and bright stars scatter the horizon, Tattu embraces The Great Snow this winter; a celebrated moment in the Chinese Calendar symbolising royalty, dignity, and purity.
Tattu’s iconic cherry blossom trees will turn icy blue, adorned with frost to make them shimmer and sparkle as you dine. And since we can’t see the Northern Lights in Manchester, Tattu is bringing them to diners. Be fully immersed by the Northern Lights as you enjoy a delicious meal, as the restaurant’s wall art comes to life with a dazzling show of The Aurora Borealis.
Adding to all the wintery magic, Tattu will be serving elevated modern-Chinese dishes, artfully curated limited-edition cocktails and showstopping snow-scaped desserts, to create a truly memorable dining experience. Taking centre stage on the drinks menu are two winter exclusive cocktails including the Iced Skull Candy and the Great Snow cocktail featuring Grey Goose vodka – both icy blue and mystifying as well as full of elegance.
Desserts will also be given an icy twist. The Frozen Cherry Blossom dessert has been beautifully reimagined to reflect the Great Snow- topped with icy blue candyfloss, the dessert features white chocolate and cherry and is presented on a bed of dried ice which cascades over the table as you dine. And available exclusively during the winter period, the limited edition Snow Leopard dessert with peanut butter fudge, honeycomb and marshmallow.
Tattu’s winter menu offers something for every palette. Standouts include satay rib-eye beef, green pepper lobster, Japanese black wagyu, Shanghai black cod, seven spiced seared tuna and, of course, Tattu classic, wok-fired angry bird – a signature chicken dish served with roast chilli peppers and sesame honey soy.
Tattu will also host a dinner on New Year’s Eve to ring in 2023 which includes a mixed dim sum basket and glazed beef bao buns. You can also enjoy add-ons like waygu dumplings, sticky beef short rib and seven spice seared tuna to really start the new year as you mean to go on. Plus, you can make it a welcome glass of fizz, two signature cocktails, Champagne or non-alcoholic tipples, to your dining menu.
