August’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme might be over but Masons Restaurant Bar have something even better for Manchester’s hungry diners.
Every Thursday throughout September, this elegant restaurant, part of the history-laden Manchester Hall, is offering an astonishing deal for steak-lovers.
For just £50, you and a companion can enjoy their chateaubriand for two experience, along with a wealth of luxurious sides and a full bottle of quality red wine.
It’s the ideal pick-me-up to say goodbye to the past few tumultuous months, whether you fancy a romantic get together with a partner, a heady business meal or just a meet-up with an old pal who enjoys the finer things in life.
Expect 16 ounces of butter-basted tenderloin steak, cut into six thick, mouthwatering slices, nestled on a bed on crunchy spring greens, plus a portion of salty, piping hot garlic and parsley chips.
And that’s not all. You’ll also get both a potent red wine sauce and a pot of buttery béarnaise sauce to dip or drizzle over your steak, plus some of the locally-famed pecorino polenta – crunchy, golden cubes that pair wonderfully with the tender, earthy meat.
Then to wash it all down, a bottle of ruby red Tempranillo Syrah Altozano, a delicious Spanish wine full of fruity, oaky aromas, dominated by ripe cherries, with a gentle touch of spice on the finish. It’s the ideal accompaniment for a high-quality steak, and certain to make for a truly indulgent evening.
And that’s precisely what you can expect from this stunning venue. It’s the centrepiece of what was formerly the Freemason’s Hall and dates back almost a century.
The furnishings are opulent, the staff are among the most skilled and professional in the city, and everything about the venue exudes a kind of understated elegance – sophisticated and steeped in Manchester history without any undue pomp and circumstance.
This is partly down to the multi-million-pound refurbishment that was finished back in 2018, but both the location – a key fixture on Bridge Street, one of Manchester’s grandest strips – and the original fixtures make this a must-visit restaurant for any Mancunian, and indeed anyone visiting the city who wishes to see the best of Manchester.
Don’t overlook the rest of the menu. The dishes incorporate a world influence while relying heavily on local produce so everything feels fresh and full of life, as it should be.
Whether you fancy adding a starter to the chateaubriand offer or making a return visit, all the courses on offer and worth exploring – although we especially recommend the Loch Lyne smoked salmon bruschetta as a way to kickstart your meal with flavourful British ingredients, imaginatively prepared.
Masons Restaurant Bar is a glimpse into Manchester’s upscale heritage teamed with high-end, locally-sourced food.
And this remarkable offer, delivering an entire evening of food and drink for two for just £50, is just the cherry on top of one of the city’s most splendid destinations.
