When NQ residents need space outside the city, several move to Didsbury. Burger and grill restaurant Solita has done likewise, establishing its second branch (a third in Prestwich is imminent) just off the main drag in the perennially popular suburb. It’s a big space, dominated by faces drawn by artist Stanley Chow and a giant sign, hanging from the mezzanine, that puts the Solita name in circus-style lights. The menus are constantly evolving thanks to the restaurant’s enthusiasm for statement dishes, with frequent homages to major brands such as the Big Mac (the Big Manc is a much-loved fixture) and McRib. Starters including cheeseburger spring rolls and a pulled pork sundae may limit your ability to attack the buttermilk fried chicken burger or Lone Star hot dog, topped with smoked brisket chilli. It’s all done well: in a crowded market that has attracted many amateurish players, Solita is fully pro.
