Steak and seafood restaurant The Cut & Craft, which has sites in Leeds and York, is heading to Manchester in the next few months.

It’s set to open on the historic site of the Manchester & Salford Bank on Mosley Street, a Grade II-listed building dating back to 1862 and standing imposingly on the corner of Piccadilly Gardens.

The building, designed by Mancunian architect Edward Walters, who was also responsible for the Free Trade Hall, was taken on by Bruntwood and restored, being given the new name Bond and opening up earlier this year.

On the menu will be premium, locally-sourced steaks and sustainable seafood, served all day, alongside dishes like grilled monkfish, king scallops, a sturdy fish and chips, grilled lamb cutlets and a signature 10 oz flat iron.

Oscar Akgul, co-founder at Lucia and The Cut & Craft said: “Manchester is soon to have The Cut & Craft and in all honesty we simply cannot wait. 

“Our new venue is located on Mosley Street inside the iconic Grade II building. Filled with history and its original features including vaults, soon to host private dining, combined with state of the art ladies room, ‘gossip room’ and sommelier lounge.

“Our new restaurant will be filled with elegant yet timeless style settings giving you the ultimate luxury at accessible prices.

“Working closely with the local authorities to bring back this rare building to its glorious days, once this is completed I believe we’ll make Manchester proud, as well as all the people who’ve worked on this amazing restoration project.

“We’re months away from opening and we cannot wait to welcome you all.”

Ciara Keeling, chief operating officer at Bruntwood SciTech, added: “We are thrilled to be welcoming The Cut & Craft to Bond. In breathing new life into this iconic building Bruntwood SciTech have created an inspiring new workspace and leisure destination, one which deserves an exceptional hospitality operator at its heart. 

“Preservation of this building’s extraordinary heritage and architecture has been front of mind throughout the whole restoration project, and the ground floor banking hall space 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, completing Bond’s status as an exciting new destination for the city centre.”

An opening date is yet to be announced.
