Store Street Exchange has revealed a taste of things to come, as they unveil the menu for their extraordinary new restaurant and bar arriving Friday 29th September.
Store Street Exchange and Store Street Craft Bar will be situated on the ground floor of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at Piccadilly and will represent an exciting and unconventional, day to night, social den of fine food and drink. The concept is inspired by Manchester's industrial background, as well as its forward thinking, inventive identity, and the venue will be serving up outstanding, uncomplicated food and drink from breakfast through to dinner.
The focus is on regional suppliers, expertly sourced ingredients and simple, hearty and magnificent meals, with grills and rotisserie taking centre stage.
Corn-fed Goosnargh chickens, courtesy of the iconic, Lancashire-based Johnson and Swarbrick is cooked on the rotisserie all day, every day and available as full and half birds. Known for producing some of the best poultry in the UK, Johnson and Swarbrick believe a 'happy bird is a tasty bird', so diners can expect the very best from the finest producer the region has to offer.
Steak comes courtesy of premium butchers, Aubrey Allen. Scrupulous in their sourcing they are devoted to supplying the very best meat from the most natural areas of outstanding beauty in the UK – this alongside the consistent approach and purchasing of the entire animal means their beef is placed in the top 1% in the world and has been called the 'holy grail of beef'.
The Store Street grill will serve up rump fillet, rib-eye, sirloin, Barnsley Chop and a Store Street Beef Burger. A beef rump and a Moroccan shoulder of lamb will also be roasted on the rotisserie.
An extensive range of splendid side dishes will be served up to complement the grill and rotisserie menu including herb crusted Portobello mushroom fries (served with Harrogate Blue Dip); rotisserie potatoes cooked with bone marrow; tiger fries; creamy mash and roast garlic gravy and charred corn on the cob with lime and paprika butter.
Vegetarians and pescetarians will be catered for too with potato gnocchi and wild mushrooms, Moroccan roasted cauliflower, mussels in local cider and responsibly sourced, seasonal fish dishes from Neve Seafood all make an appearance on the Store Street Exchange menu.
The starters and desserts collection are a medley of classic, delicious, no-nonsense dishes from Bury black pudding and grilled, shell-on tiger prawns to melt in the middle chocolate pudding with salted caramel ice cream, 'berry mess' and local cheeses.
Local and craft beers will be in abundance courtesy of the adjoining Store Street Craft Bar, as well as a cracking wine list.
This is about special food, simple pleasures and the creation of a laid-back haven in which to enjoy it all – whether that's lunch, brunch, business dinners, long lazy catch ups, family gatherings or just a spot of coffee and cake. The city is about to get a brand new, foodie enclave and everyone's invited.
