Steakhouse to open at Bruntwood’s Bond

Crossing the Pennines, Yorkshire-based The Cut & Craft will be making its Manchester debut later this year at the former bank off Mosley Street.

The steakhouse and seafood restaurant currently operates two locations in York and Leeds. In Manchester, it will take over 8,600 sq ft of the ground floor at Bruntwood SciTech’s 19th-century Bond building, occupying the former banking hall.

“We have been huge fans of the city for some time and can’t wait to join Manchester’s brilliant dining community, especially at such an exciting time,” said The Cut & Craft operations manager Darioush Shahidi.

“Our locations are hugely important to us, and this historic site feels like the perfect home for our first North West opening,” Shahidi continued.

Originally constructed in 1862 for the Manchester and Salford Bank, the grade two star-listed Bond has undergone a £5.6m restoration to transform it into modern-day offices.

The Cut & Craft is due to open before the end of the year. When it does open its doors, diners will be able to enjoy a menu that includes Exmoor caviar, seared king scallops, lamb cutlets, oysters, craft burgers, and dry-aged steaks.

Ciara Keeling, chief operating officer at Bruntwood SciTech, welcomed the news about The Cut & Craft.

“In breathing new life into this iconic building, Bruntwood SciTech has created an inspiring new workspace and leisure destination, one which deserves an exceptional hospitality operator at its heart,” she said.

“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,” Keeling continued.

“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.”

Jonathan Thompson of Lyons Thompson Letts represented Bruntwood SciTech on the deal, while Adam Bowers of Onepoint2 acted for The Cut & Craft.
