Boasting what may well be the best steak in Manchester, Hawksmoor is housed in a late Victorian building in Deansgate, near the culinary hub of Spinningfields. While the restaurant serves up top-quality steaks and seafood throughout the year, it shines during the festive season, when you can expect show-stopping roasts and set menus. This particular site is filled with reclaimed Victorian materials, giving the space a truly historic feel. The menu features dry-aged beef, ethically sourced seafood and seasonal farm produce, as well as award-winning cocktails and delicious desserts.
Start off your festive gathering at Hawksmoor Manchester with a creative cocktail like the French house fizz, made with Beefeater 24 gin, strawberry, tarragon and cream soda, or the fuller fat old-fashioned (the secret ingredient is salted brown butter). Elsewhere you’ll find the Champagne and sparkling selection, with bottles ranging from an affordable Veneto Prosecco to a decadent 2013 Perrier-Jouet. Magnum bottles are also available for those who want to pull out all the stops this Christmas.
Typical set menus at Hawksmoor feature all the big-hitters we’ve come to expect. Start things off with the likes of Old Spot belly ribs, potted beef and bacon with Yorkshire puddings or fillet carpaccio with pickled chestnut mushrooms. After that, it’s time for the main event. Choose from a range of prime cuts of beef, including rump, sirloin, T-bone, bone-in prime rib, chateaubriand and porterhouse. Those who don’t eat meat can enjoy the signature monkfish grilled over charcoal or a seasonal vegetarian main. Finish with a classic house dessert, such as sticky toffee pudding or rhubarb pavlova. Cheese here comes from the prestigious Neal’s Yard, so those who prefer a savoury finish to their meal are well-catered to.
