Hot on the trail of Edwardian Hotels London’s high profile new dining destinations, Radisson Blu Edwardian, Manchester Hotel upgrades its own eaterie to serve up some dynamic dining in Peter Street Kitchen. This gorgeous new eaterie is the culmination of an ambitious, multi-million-pound investment across the site, and brings fabulous shared dining and private dining experiences to the restaurant, which overlooks Manchester’s vibrant Peter Street.

The Edwardian Hotels London’s Service Excellence Director Amir Jati – responsible for the private dining revolution – spearheaded the change after delivering on the hugely successful openings of the May Fair, Leicester Square and Monmouth Kitchens.

Peter Street Kitchen injects new life into one of only two city centre hotels in the city to have five-star status. An exquisite menu of Japanese and Mexican small plates has been crafted especially, perfectly complementing the venue’s unique layout. Private diners will have food cooked on a traditional hibachi (a Japanese charcoal brazier), while those wanting a more social experience can sit in the rounded shared dining area.

Mexican dishes include shredded crab with spicy ginger mayo tostadas; robata mescal-glazed smoked paprika ribs; and Mayan-spiced marinated chicken ensalada with cashews, black lime and sesame oil. Japanese dishes, meanwhile, include yellowtail sashimi with spicy yuzu soy; chilli lemon roasted baby chicken served on a Peter Street Kitchen bincho grill; warm Wagyu beef Japanese flatbread with dried chilli and yuzu mayo; and king crab tempura with amazu ponzu. Sweet options include a chocolate bento box with genmaicha ice cream, and kurogoma cheesecake with Hassaku orange sorbet.

The glorious Bar and Rikyu Lounge are located in the building’s stunning original brick colonnades. Drinks such as a yuzu-flavoured sake join a world-class cocktail collection curated by Dan Berger (The Ned, The Blind Pig, Social Eating House), winner of Bombay Sapphire UK’s Most Imaginative Bartender 2015 award. The restaurant will also throw a series of regular Rikyu brunches featuring free-flowing Japanese-inspired cocktails, signature dishes and live entertainment.
