Solita Steakhouse… South Of Little Italy

Following on from the success of three Solita restaurants in the Northern Quarter, Didsbury and Prestwich, the much loved Manchester brand is taking on a new challenge with the launch of its newest concept – a New York inspired steakhouse.

Solita Steakhouse – South Of Little Italy comes after three months of searching for a name, two trips to New York and the consumption of far too many steaks – all in the name of research!

The name reflects exactly what the restaurant will specialise in…cooking steaks, but with a nod to the brand’s Little Italy heritage diners can expect to see some classic Italian and New York influences amongst the sides and starters.

The Solita Steakhouse will be situated at the heart of Manchester City Centre in the historic Barton Arcade on Deansgate. Now under new owners, the building which was built in 1877 is undergoing the biggest refurbishment since it was first built. The venue will sit alongside new opening Lunya and a cocktail bar from London operators Be At One.

Franco Sotgiu, co-owner said; “Solita Steakhouse will be a grown up version of our other Solita sites. Much like us the Barton Arcade has grown up with its recent new openings and this summer we believe it’s set to become one of the city’s hot spots. It’s a beautiful building and we’re planning to bring it back to life with three lovingly restored floors offering an unbeatable drinking and dining experience.

Continuing the commitment Franco and the team have to delivering excellent food and ingredients, all meat will be aged on site in a two storey glass fronted meat ageing room – a first for the UK.

“Having visited a few steakhouses in the name of research, what really stands out for me is the glamour and quality of the experience for diners. It’s not just about having a great steak, its about having a top night out whatever the occasion. We will build our own unique Solita brand into this age old heritage. The drinks, the decor, the staff – everything – will contribute to making the Solita Steakhouse experience special.”

The ground floor of Solita Steakhouse will see a small cocktail and casual dining bar, the basement will feature a stunning New York Style steakhouse and the sub basement, which has lain derelict for over 50 years, will be transformed into a unique bar and private dining space.

Continuing the commitment Franco and the team have to delivering excellent food and ingredients, all meat will be aged on site in a two storey glass fronted meat ageing room – a first for the UK.

The planned opening date for Solita Steakhouse is 1 July. For details of soft opening and launch follow – @SolitaSteak. For more info about Solita visit http://www.solita.co.uk/.
