Manchester isn’t short on good places for great pizzas, but here’s one of my favourites: Ply.
Ply is right in the heart of the Northern Quarter, meaning there are lots of places to go to before or after a visit for drinks, shopping and everything else. Ply turns from relaxing restaurant by day to bustling bar by night, though; sometimes there’s no need to go anywhere else!
Things I really, really love about Ply
• They serve amazing pizzas from their mirror-tiled, woodfired oven. My favourites are the Rustica with heaps of prosciutto, or the sausage pizza with broccoli;
• They serve amazing, fruity cocktails – with blueberries, grapefruit or rhubarb;
• They host a range of exhibitions and events – meaning I can enjoy my favourite pizzas and then check out local artists or performers;
• Their website, with its Memphis Design-inspired patterns, makes my knees knock.
If that list doesn’t convince you, well, I don’t know what will.
