Scottish Steakhouse at Manchester Piccadilly Hotel
As you might imagine, top-quality steak is the name of the game at Scottish Steakhouse. Just “simple ingredients, cooked to perfection by talented chefs”.
Hotel restaurants can sometimes get a bad rep, but the restaurant here at Manchester Piccadilly Hotel works hard to source from fully accredited Scottish farms – ageing it for a minimum of 21 days on the bone.
Start with a bite of local rosemary focaccia or grilled portobello mushroom with Blacksticks Blue cheese in true grill house style before you move on to The Main Event.
Burgers are a particular speciality at the Scottish Steakhouse with the aptly named Piccadilly Burger taking top billing. The patty itself is made up of chuck, short rib and marrow beef and is draped in barbecue-pulled brisket before finding itself in its brioche bun.
Steak-wise, sirloin and ribeye take up the beef category. While a lamb Barnsley chop (a rarity in restaurants, but getting rather popular nowadays) and full poussin can be served with a choice of sauces. From brandied peppercorn and stilton to garlic herb butter and red wine jus.
For vegans and veggies, goats cheese, plant-based burgers and cauliflower wings are contenders. With wild mushrooms with truffle oil and port wine cream take up the rear. Pair this all with olive oil mash or hand-cut fat chips for a downright feast.
Classic sweet dishes include sticky toffee pudding and warm orchard fruit crumble with a mascarpone sabayon.
