Review on Hawksmoor Manchester
March 2015 saw the opening of Hawksmoor Manchester, the fifth addition to Will Beckett and Huw Gott's stable of celebrated Steak House restaurants, their first outside London. Named after Nicholas Hawksmoor, the eighteenth-century architect who designed Christ Church in Spitalfields, the restaurant and cocktail bar occupies a former Victorian courthouse on the corner of Deansgate and Atkinson Street. Inside the décor pays homage to the building's heritage, with a huge glass ceiling in the main restaurant. Warm, clubby décor with luxurious blue leather banquette seating and dark wood tables set on reclaimed parquet flooring, together with US imported 1950's holophane lamp fittings impart a stylish backdrop to the well-executed menu.
The meat for their succulent steaks is sourced from Longhorn cattle traditionally reared in North Yorkshire by multi-award winners The Ginger Pig. They are dry-aged hung for at least 35 days and cooked on a real charcoal grill. A popular starter is their potted beef and bacon served with Yorkshires or fish fans might choose the roast scallops with tarragon and garlic. As well as an excellent selection of succulent steaks with your choice of sauce, there's fish dishes in the shape of Royal bream with garlic, rosemary and chilli. Elsewhere on the menu you might see sticky orange pudding with custard or passion fruit crème brûlée.
There's an extensive wine list carefully compiled to complement the food together with a dazzling cocktail menu.
