The highly-anticipated restaurant at the Stock Exchange Hotel is expected to open next month as Stock Market Grill, under the helm of the trio behind Manchester venues Schofield’s Bar, Atomeca and Sterling. After Tom Kerridge announced last year that he would be stepping away from The Bull & Bear at the Stock Exchange Hotel, sibling team Joe and Daniel Schofield and wine expert James Brandwood will launch their first restaurant venture this March.
Set in the Edwardian baroque splendour of this listed building, once the city’s financial hub, the Stock Market Grill will be at the heart of the hotel, which is co-owned by Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs and hotelier Winston Zahra. Named among the Leading Hotel of the Year at the This Is Manchester Awards 2022, Stock Exchange Hotel features forty rooms, suites and a fully serviced residence, private spaces and a subterranean bar, Sterling – serving cocktails, rare wines and live music, all overseen by the Schofield and Brandwood team.
Stock Market Grill joins this roster in the spectacular setting of what was the trading floor, nestled under its ornate domed ceiling. With head chef Joshua Reed-Cooper in charge (previously at The French with Simon Rogan, with Sam Buckley at Where the Light Gets In and at Michelin-starred Mana), Stock Market Grill will offer an all-day menu filled with elevated ‘British Brasserie’ classics using the highest-quality local ingredients.
Serving traditional favourites, the launch menu includes Oysters with Mignonette and Westcombe Cheddar & Smoked Anchovy Straws, followed by starters such as Chicken Liver Parfait with Sauternes Jelly & Sourdough Toast; Mussel Cullen Skink; and Wild Mushrooms with Confit Yolk & Spelt.
Mains at Stock Market Grill include Rabbit Suet Pudding with Mustard Cream; Tranche of Brill with Borderlaise & Grilled Onion; Mangalitsa Pork Chop with Yorkshire Rhubarb Ketchup; and Ex-dairy Rib Eye with Brown Butter Jus & Lemon. To finish, diners can tuck into desserts such as Blood Orange Tart with Clotted Cream and Whiskey Baba with Vanilla Chantilly.
Joe Schofield said: “We aim to create one of the best restaurants in the North of England, right here at the Stock Exchange Hotel… To create an experience to remember, highlighting the stunning architecture of the dining room and the food on the plate.”
Reservations are now being taken here.
Stock Market Grill will be open from March 1 and can be found at Stock Exchange Hotel, 4 Norfolk St, M2 1DW.
