It has already blazed a trail through London’s dining scene. Now as Edwardian Hotels London announces the October launch of Peter Street Kitchen, Manchester is all set to get its first taste of a dynamic new concept of shared dining.
Part of a multi-million-pound investment, this vibrant new space will spearhead the food and beverage offering at the revitalised Radisson Blu Edwardian hotel, one of only two five-star hotels in central Manchester.
Guests 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.
“We know that Peter Street Kitchen will be a similar game-changer within Manchester’s booming restaurant scene.”
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 the building’s stunning original brick colonnades.
In addition, from Saturday 13 October, the restaurant will stage a series of regular Rikyu brunches featuring free-flowing Japanese-inspired cocktails, signature dishes and live entertainment.
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 successful openings of the May Fair, Leicester Square and Monmouth Kitchens.
Said Amir: “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.”
