The latest edition to Manchester’s iconic King Street of none other than Gordon Ramsay’s Lucky Cat. Now occupying the breathtaking grade II listed building at number 100, this culinary destination pays homage to Japan’s drinking dens of the 1930s. Boasting a menu full of tantalising Asian-inspired creations, Social Republic had to try it out.
The Latest Addition to King Street
Formerly Midland Bank, Lucky Cat combines Art Deco styling with sprinklings of charm. Whether you’re seated around the central bar, looking out over the expansive space from private spaces above or dining in one of the restored vaults, the opulent atmosphere is observed.
Lucky Cat Concoctions
In our opinion, a cocktail is never a bad place to start. Lucky Cat presents an array of elevated classics and Asian-inspired creations. It celebrates the spirit of Tokyo’s 1930s Kissa Clubs and Shanghai’s drinking dens. Championing clean and elegant flavours, Social Republic’s favourites included the Okinawa Margarita, and Ureshii, a mouthwatering combination of Suntory Haku Japanese vodka, sake, lychee, rose, and smoked sea salt.
Created by Gordon Ramsay and Executive Head Chef Andre Camilo, the menu ranges from sharing dishes to larger meals. Including all the favourites from the Mayfair branch, the menu also introduces new and exciting options for true gastronomic exploration.
Lucky Cat Joins Manchester’s Culinary Scene
“We’re fired up to build on the phenomenal success of our Mayfair restaurant and bring something truly exceptional to the people of Manchester this Summer. I can’t wait for Lucky Cat to make its mark in this fantastic city!” -Gordon
Social Republic’s favourites included the sumptuous Maki offering, including some particularly delectable California Rolls. Amongst the feast was Bonito Fried Duck Leg Baos, shredded and assembled at the table, Smoked Barbeque Aubergine and succulent Monkfish Tempura.
Leaving immensely satisfied and already considering our return, Social Republic can wholeheartedly recommend Lucky Cat as a culinary destination to try, and a great addition to Manchester’s already impressive culinary landscape.
