Edwardian Hotels London is to launch Peter Street Kitchen, Manchester on 11 October.
Part of a multi-million-pound investment, this vibrant new space will spearhead the F&B offering at the revitalised Radisson Blu Edwardian hotel, one of only two five- star hotels in central Manchester. Guests here will be able to choose from an array of small plates from two different cuisines, in this instance contemporary Japanese and Mexican, within a sophisticated yet unassuming setting.
Whether large groups or those wanting an intimate dinner for two, all will be seduced by an array of exquisitely prepared small plates. Showcasing flavours and ingredients from both nations, the venue will also cater for private dinners for which the staff will especially use the traditional hibachi, the iconic Japanese charcoal brazier.
From Mexico come such colourful and piquant offerings as Shredded crab with spicy ginger mayo tostadas; Robata pisco-glazed smoked paprika ribs and Mayan-spiced marinated chicken ensalada with cashews, black lime & sesame oil.
Meanwhile, clean and sophisticated Japanese flavours take centre stage in dishes that include Yellowtail sashimi with spicy yuzu soy; Chilli lemon roasted baby chicken served on a Peter Street Kitchen bincho grill; Warm Wagyu beef Japanese flatbread with dried chilli & yuzu mayo and King crab tempura with amazu ponzu.
Desserts also draw on the fragrant flavours of Japan including the moreish Chocolate bento box with matcha white chocolate ice cream and Fuji apple crumble mousse with yuzu salt.
Complementing the restaurant offering is the equally stylish Bar and Rikyu Lounge located in ere guests can enjoy unusual beverages such as yuzu flavoured sake alongside a world class cocktail collection curated by Dan Berger (The Ned, The Blind Pig, Social Eating House), winner of Bombay Sapphire UK’s Most Imaginative Bartender 2015 award.
In addition, from Saturday 13 October, the restaurant will throw a series of regular Rikyu brunches featuring free-flowing Japanese-inspired cocktails, signature dishes and live entertainment.
Peter Street Kitchen will also offer the pinnacle of service, with staff having gone through an intensive seven-week training period, including an immersion into Japanese food and drink, culture and etiquette.
Peter Street Kitchen has been overseen by Edwardian Hotels London’s Service Excellence Director Amir Jati, who established global private dining during his ten- year tenure at the Robert De Niro co-owned Nobu before going on to mastermind the hugely successful openings of the May Fair, Leicester Square and Monmouth Kitchens.
Jati commented, “This concept has proved enormously popular in London, with Leicester Square Kitchen in the top five of both Peruvian and Mexican restaurants. We know that Peter Street Kitchen will be a similar game-changer within Manchester’s booming restaurant scene.”
