Will Beckett and Huw Gott have just launched their first restaurant outside of London, Hawksmoor Manchester. The sixth Hawksmoor is a 130-cover restaurant and 44-cover bar with an Edwardian interior and a menu revolving around steaks from ethically-reared native breed cattle along with sustainable seafood from around the British coast.
The interior takes its cue from the landmark Grade II listed Courthouse building the restaurant is located in. Reclaimed materials are used extensively to create a comfortable lived-in feel.
The menu features a number of new dishes created especially for the Manchester restaurant. These include Shortrib Macaroni, Veal Rump with Fried Oysters, Cottage Pie Potato Skins and Maple Bacon. Joining old favourites on the bar menu is a Poutine Barm, a Montreal-meets-Manchester sandwich with triple cooked chips, chicken gravy and cheddar cheese curds stuffed in a traditional barm, with extra gravy for dipping.
