UK favourite Flat Iron has announced that they will be opening a restaurant on Deansgate in early Summer.

Located at 200-204 Deansgate, the 150-cover restaurant will bring its single-minded commitment to serving remarkable steak at an affordable price to the heart of Manchester.

The restaurant’s concise menu is led by the signature ‘Flat Iron’ steak, taken from Featherblade, known for its flavour, tenderness and juiciness when seam butchered with skill and care, alongside much-loved sides such as beef dripping chips, creamed spinach, truffled macaroni cheese and crispy bone marrow garlic mash.

A curated selection of wines will make up the drinks list, including Flat Iron’s very own Malbec, specially blended by the Flat Iron team using grapes grown in the Limoux area of the Languedoc in southern France.

Alongside the wine list will sit a selection of draft beers and Flat Iron’s signature cocktails.

The two-floor restaurant is housed in a Grade II Listed building, designed by Charles Heathcote and first opened to the public in 1908 as the office of the Royal London Friendly Society.

The interiors of the restaurant have been remodelled by architect Macaulay Sinclair with the vision to uncover and display as much of the original building fabric as possible, highlighting any heritage assets and celebrating the architectural features.

Existing plasterwork and cornicing have been exposed and paired with the original timber flooring, original glazed brick walls have been exposed, riveted steel columns revealed, and original parquet flooring restored.

Speaking of the opening, Flat Iron’s Founder, Charlie Carroll says “Opening a restaurant in my home town of Manchester is a big deal to me and a long time coming.

“The food and drink scene is so exciting at the moment and just keeps getting better. I can’t wait to be a tiny part of it.

“I fell in love with a beautiful historic building on Deansgate in 2018 and 6 years on we are finally opening this summer. Flat Iron is about unpretentious, top-quality steak, available to all.

“I am passionate about delicious beef and proud to bring Flat Iron to the city where I grew up and where so many of my friends and family live.”

Flat Iron will open in Manchester in the Summer of 2024.
