An artists impression shows a sneaky glimpse into the most anticipated restaurant opening of the autumn as sensational seafood restaurant Sexy Fish prepares to land in Manchester.
The magnificent eaterie, which has only two other restaurants in Mayfair and Miami, and is a popular celeb haunt, will be situated in the heart of the city, taking centre stage in the former Armani store in Spinningfields.
Striking interior features will include spectacular artworks from international artist, Damien Hirst, including three giant sculptures incorporating creatures from under the sea, specially created for the space.
Additional interior elements will include a collection of iconic ‘Fish Lamps’ from world-famous designer and architect Frank Gehry, a beautiful Verde Esmerelda stone floor, and a series of bespoke glass columns created by master Venetian glassmakers on the island of Murano.
Sexy Fish Manchester will also feature a one-of-a-kind destination bar of glowing pink onyx and glass, set against a backdrop of a cascading waterfall. Magical ocean motifs continue into the ladies’ restrooms with a hand carved pink onyx vanity alongside mosaic murals depicting mermaids and underwater scenes, as well as vintage 1940’s ‘Coquille’ shell wall lights.
Caprice Holdings Chairman, Richard Caring, said: “Myself and the entire company are extremely excited to bring Sexy Fish to the vibrant and amazing city of Manchester this autumn.
Manchester follows on from the successful restaurants in London and Miami. Caprice Holdings as a company has an affinity with the city, and we believe that Sexy Fish will be loved and enjoyed by the people of Manchester. I repeat, we are truly excited and look forward to being in one of the greatest cities in the UK, and the world.”
Sexy Fish will be open for lunch and dinner, offering delectable a la carte options, Omakase tasting menus, and late-night dining options. Dishes will include a diverse selection of tantalising creations inspired by the seas of Asia, alongside signatures such as duck salad, smoked tuna belly, crispy eringi mushroom, black cod, and king crab.
Devised by internationally renowned and acclaimed Chef Director, Bjoern Weissgerber, the menus will also include unique recipes exclusive to Manchester.
The restaurant will house the largest Champagne collection in the country (with 75 different references), a selection of the world’s top vintages from leading estates, and an excellent sake wine selection.
Guests will also be able to enjoy creations from the innovative Trinity Menu, a collection of award-winning cocktails from London and Miami, alongside four bespoke serves curated specifically for Sexy Fish Manchester, including Strawberry & Grapefruit (£17.00), featuring Hibiki Harmony Japanese whisky, strawberry, grapefruit, black pepper, lemon and soda, and Tonic & Mango (£12.00), created with Manchester’s own Thomas Dakin Gin, aromatic tonic water, mango, coconut, and pandan.
