THE Albert Square Chop House is now open, and they're inviting one lucky reader and friends in for a wine-matched dinner on the house.
One person will win a three-course dinner for four, with expertly matched wines selected by their sommelier 'Polish Martin'. If it's anything like the food and drink at the other Chop Houses, it's worth getting excited about.
'Polish Martin' is the protégé of George Bergier, the long-standing chair of the Manchester Guild of Sommeliers and the Chop Houses' wine maestro. Martin xxxxx was the runner-up in the Manchester Sommelier of the Year Award 2012. Working with George, he has given the Albert Square Chop House a winning selection of wines to complement the winning food.
You'll choose your meal from an a la carte menu devised by head chefs Ian Ledbetter and Paul Faulkner – a kitchen duo to be reckoned with. Between them, they've worked at Piccolino, The Modern and xxxx, winning numerous awards along the way.
They were given free-reign to create a brand new 'classics' menu for Albert Square. It's an individual take on traditional British cuisine, with locally sourced ingredients and locally inspired recipes.
Expect dishes such as High Peak mutton chop and braised shoulder, with celeriac, caper berries and slow-roast garlic, and Mrs Kirkham’s Lancashire cheese, potato and caramelized onion pie with cauliflower, lemon and marjoram salad.
