The best steakhouse in the North. Opening on Deansgate in 2015, the first Hawksmoor steakhouse outside of London is a confident affair. Well sourced steak and attention to detail have created a place like no other.
Choose from huge sharing cuts such as T-bone, porterhouse and prime rib, with solo steaks available if you’re not into sharing.
Starters such as caesar salad with airy Doddington shavings, or sticky, rare breed Old Spot belly ribs are meals in themselves.
Seafood is another strength. Ethically sourced scallops bathe in white port and garlic butter. Or try the UK-sourced monkfish, grilled over charcoal.
Side orders such as triple-cooked chips, creamed spinach, anchovy hollandaise and bone marrow gravy are reason enough to visit, and the location is lovely.
Packed with nooks and crannies, the wood-lined former court room feels unpretentious and the Mid Century light fittings, sourced from the US, reflect the subtle good taste at work.
Drinks take in classic cocktails, highballs and fizzes. Meanwhile the wine list is packed with intriguing, accessible wines. A reliably brilliant experience.
