Those who’ve been to James Martin Manchester know it’s a high point of classic dining in the city centre.
The focus is on big flavours, locally-sourced ingredients and beautifully-crafted dishes that change according to the season.
Not only that, it’s a great-looking space; all old-school glamour and stylish lighting, perfect for anything from romantic evenings to a drawn-out leisurely lunch with friends, family or colleagues.
You wouldn’t expect anything less from James Martin. This no-nonsense Yorkshire chef has built his career on modern British cuisine, appearing in dozens of high-quality TV cooking shows and winning too many awards to mention.
Of course, no visit to James Martin Manchester is complete without trying steak, and this March the team have arranged an unmissable offer for both first-time visitors and regular diners alike.
The name says it all: Steak and Wine for Two.
The offer might be simple, but this isn’t any basic piece of meat. It’s a hefty 8oz sirloin steak, sourced from cattle born and reared on the nearby Cumbrian Fells, one of the most scenic areas in the North of England.
It’s then cooked according to James Martin’s exacting standards to bring the very best flavour and texture out of this fine-grained and well-marbled cut.
And then there are the venue’s signature dripping chips.
These chips are worth the price of admission alone, cooked with beef dripping to deliver an extra boost of flavour to the crispy golden coating and soft and fluffy potato inside.
The meal also comes with a pot of homemade, punchy peppercorn sauce and a bottle of great quality wine to share between two, carefully selected to complement the flavours of the meat.
Best of all? This entire feast is available for just £28 per person.
Food and drink of this quality would ordinarily set you back a lot more than this – even if you were to attempt to cook it at home.
Instead, you can kick back and let James Martin’s expert team treat you to a luxurious evening of high-end food in sophisticated surroundings.
Taking us through the tail-end of winter up to the start of spring, this unbeatable offer is available every Wednesday and Thursday throughout March, from the 2nd to the 31st.
The offer is for a minimum of two people, making it ideal for a romantic top-up after those Valentine’s Day celebrations, but if you’re looking for an excuse to get your nearest and dearest together for a special occasion, or organise a special work outing to boost morale after the past couple of years, it doesn’t get better than this.
Demand is set to be high so be sure to book in advance, and see their website for full T&Cs.
