Manchester’s dining scene is set for another dazzling addition as The Cut & Craft, a renowned steak and seafood restaurant with successful sites in Leeds and York, prepares to open its doors in the city.

This new venue will be housed in the storied Manchester & Salford Bank building on Mosley Street, a Grade II-listed architectural gem that has graced the city since 1862.

The imposing structure, masterfully designed by celebrated Mancunian architect Edward Walters—also known for his work on the Free Trade Hall—stands proudly on the corner of Piccadilly Gardens.

Recently restored by Bruntwood and rechristened as Bond, this palazzo-style building now marries historic grandeur with modern elegance.

It looks set to be one gorgeous venue.

The restaurant will highlight many of the building’s original features, from the intricate cornicing on its double-height ceiling to the expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, providing a dining experience that is both luxurious and steeped in history.

The Cut & Craft’s menu promises to be a culinary delight, featuring premium, locally sourced steaks and sustainable seafood, served all day.

Diners can look forward to dishes such as grilled monkfish, king scallops, fish and chips, grilled lamb cutlets, and the restaurant’s signature 10 oz flat iron steak, expertly butchered in-house.

Oscar Akgul, co-founder of Lucia and The Cut & Craft, expressed his enthusiasm for the new Manchester location: “Manchester is soon to have The Cut & Craft and in all honesty, we simply cannot wait.

“Our new venue on Mosley Street, inside the iconic Grade II building, is filled with history and original features, including vaults that will soon host private dining.

“Combined with state-of-the-art amenities like our ladies’ room, ‘gossip room,’ and sommelier lounge, we are creating an elegant yet timeless setting offering luxury at accessible prices.”

Akgul added, “We’ve worked closely with local authorities to restore this rare building to its former glory. Once completed, I believe we’ll make Manchester proud, as well as honour the efforts of everyone involved in this amazing restoration project.

“We’re just months away from opening and can’t wait to welcome you all.”

The menu will also feature freshly-shucked oysters, Exmoor caviar, and hand-cut beef tartare with breaded yolk and sesame croutons, ensuring a diverse and exquisite dining experience for all guests.

Ciara Keeling, Chief Operating Officer at Bruntwood SciTech, shared her excitement about the collaboration: “We are thrilled to be welcoming The Cut & Craft to Bond.

“By breathing new life into this iconic building, Bruntwood SciTech has created an inspiring new workspace and leisure destination.

“Preservation of this building’s extraordinary heritage and architecture has been a priority throughout the restoration project, and the ground floor banking hall is no exception.

“In The Cut & Craft, we have found a partner that will bring quality, elegance, and laid-back glamour to this magnificent space, solidifying Bond’s status as an exciting new destination in the city centre.”
