Exhibition, the new multi-kitchen restaurant and entertainment venue taking over Peter Street’s historic St George’s House, is set to open to the public on Sat 12 Nov.

The space boasts an impressive trio of award-winning chefs. Prestwich favourite and Michelin Guide-named Osma offers a menu of refined, relaxed Scandinavian dishes that ranges from salmon open sandwiches and beef filet tataki to whole-baked lobster.

Caroline Martins, whose pop-up Sao Paolo Project at Blossom Street Social has proved an overwhelming hit in Manchester, brings a simplified take on her previous tasting menu concept, with Brazilian-British fusion plates like hand-dived scallops, Brazilian beef croquettes and celeriac and leek velouté.

Ramsbottom fire-cooking experts, Baraxturi, complete the food lineup with their spectacular Spanish-influenced creations like tortilla de Bilbao, smoked cod and their famous Txuleton steaks.

Along with the food, two well-stocked bars stock a variety of local beers from the likes of Cloudwater, Pomona and Sureshot, along with MCR Union Lager being available from in-venue tanks for the very first time. A wine list has been specially curated to complement the food offering, with a particular focus on low-intervention bottles.

The second bar hosts an innovative, rotating cocktail menu that spotlights ingredients that best suit the changing seasons. The first season will focus on brandy, with drinks crafted with everything from cognac and calvados, to pisco and Eaux de vie.

The venue’s walls will become makeshift galleries for local artists to showcase their work, with a new artist being handpicked every season. The first exhibiting artist is Manchester’s Mark Jermyn, AKA Moderate Realism, whose multicoloured patterns work to change spatial perceptions and cast the familiar in a new light.

After dark, Exhibition will transform into a late-night bar with DJs and live music. Piccadilly Records’ Matt Ward will be curating the music offering.
