63 Degrees is a family-owned French fine dining restaurant located in the Northern Quarter, Manchester. 63 degrees is said to be the perfect temperature to brew coffee, however for this restaurant, this temperature is key to the slow and low cooking technique of many dishes on the menu.
The restaurant is open from Tuesday to Sunday, serving dinner. Lunch is served from Wednesday to Sunday. The interior is simple and stylish, with a selection of large and small tables, laid with white tablecloths and fine crockery.
