It’s already blazed a trail through the capital’s dining scene. Now as part of a multi-million-pound investment, Peter Street Kitchen has opened in Manchester, at the revitalised Radisson Blu Edwardian, one of only two five-star hotels in the centre of the city.
The new concept embraces the art of shared dining with guests 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. With communal bench tables and the pièce de résistance, the 12-seater Hibachi table, up to 28 guests can be accommodated.
From Mexico come such colourful and piquant offerings as Shredded crab with spicy ginger mayo tostadas; Robata mescal-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 and 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 ama ponzu. Desserts too draw on Japan’s fragrant flavours including the moreish Chocolate bento box with genmaicha ice cream and Kuro goma cheesecake with hassaku orange sorbet.
Complementing the restaurant offering is the equally stylish Rikyū Bar, which offers an extensive range of the finest wines, sake and signature cocktails against the backdrop of cool and contemporary interiors. Guests can alternatively experience Peter Street Kitchen’s Rikyū Lounge, located in the building’s original iconic brick colonnade, a sophisticated yet contemporary space holding up to 37 diners or 40-50 guests for semiprivate drinks receptions.
In addition, from Saturday 13th October, the restaurant will throw a series of regular Rikyū Brunches, featuring a Japanese-inspired signature cocktail on arrival, exquisite small plates and a choice of free-flowing prosecco, wine or champagne alongside live entertainment. And check out the 50% off soft launch offer below which is available for lunch and dinner until October 17.
