What's new at Mint Hotel

Speakeasy drinking and spring dining at Mint Hotel

Published on March 15th 2011.

What's new at Mint Hotel

CITY Café at Mint Hotel has released details of its new spring menu – and of a new Prohibition-era cocktail masterclass taking place on Saturday 26 March.

Spring a la carte menu
The new spring menu includes a selection of vegetarian 'Garden Dishes' as well as seasonal additions to the mains, starters and desserts.

Garden dishes are traditionally made from ingredients grown in the garden of the restaurant. As far as we know, there isn't a secret veg patch full of leeks, beetroot and ripening walnuts hidden away in the depths of City Café. But we nonetheless like the sound of these fresh, seasonal dishes.

The Spinach and parmesan ravioli with soft herb and garlic purée, braised celery and rosemary looks perfect for welcoming in the warmer weather, and the simple flavours of the Risotto with sage, lemon and broad beans are tempting.

Catching our eye in the starters are the Whitby crab and shaved fennel salad, and the Gin and sloe berry cured Loch Duart salmon.

New mains include a Shepherd's pie made from roast lamb neck fillet and braised shoulder, and a Spatchcock of spring baby chicken with lemon and thyme.

City Café always has a winning collection of desserts – options available on this menu include Carpaccio of pineapple, Almond panna-cotta, and Rhubarb and vanilla tart.

Confidential has an offer on at City Café at the moment: you can get a welcome drink, 2 courses from the new spring a la carte menu, and a glass of wine for £19.95 – click here for the details.

Prohibition cocktail masterclass
Over to the cocktail masterclass on Saturday 26 March. Taking Prohibition-era America as its theme, it will teach you to create some of the classic cocktails popular in illegal drinking dens.

The evening will kick off with a sparkling cocktail and 1920s-inspired canapés before you get started on the hard stuff. You'll move through some of the best-known concoctions – drinks made from whatever the smugglers could get past prohibition agent Elliot Ness. Then you'll end with the chance to create a modern day classic (before the law shuts down the whole operation).

Each guest will receive three cocktails plus the chance to taste a selection of others.

It costs £30 per person (£10 deposit per person at booking). Call 0161 242 1020 to book.
