The latest City Restaurant Flat have confirm their Manchester restaurant is opening at 200 Deansgate on Wednesday 3rd July.

Located in the heart of the city centre, 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.

Bringing their 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 the often overlooked 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 rotating board of specials will be available at the Manchester restaurant, including a Wagyu steak of the day, and a Scottish ribeye, exclusive to Manchester. The restaurant will also have a bespoke charcoal grill, which will be used for all beef specials.

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, including the new Tony’s Margarita and Sherbert Bellini.

Speaking of the opening, Flat Iron’s Head of Beef, Fred Smith said:

“This restaurant has been a long time coming! But, you know what, it’s all been worth it – Covid, a grade II listed building, leaking pipes – the building is beautiful, the grill is ready and we can’t wait to open the doors.”
