This Day of the Dead, Manchester’s award-winning Peter Street Kitchen will be celebrating the iconic festival with an epic feast of contemporary Mexican dishes – and Tequila Patron Espresso Martinis! – as well as an exclusive late-night after party on Saturday 2nd November.
Following the huge success of last year’s Day of the Dead party at Peter Street Kitchen, the award-winning Manchester restaurant will be raising the bar this November with the ultimate Mexican Feast, and will be joined in the celebrations by sister restaurant Leicester Square Kitchen in London. Both sites will be drawing on the iconic imagery of Día de Muertos, with Calaveras (sugar skulls), Aztec marigolds and the traditional Ofrendas (altars to the dead), with “traditional” Tequila offerings (and cocktails) from Patron flowing late into the night.
Each guest will be welcomed to the party with a contemporary twist on the classic Espresso Martini, made with Patron XO Cafe Tequila Coffee Liqueur. Dinner begins at 7.30pm, with a mouth-watering array of small plates and sharing plates presented to the table including:
Crispy Duck & Pomegranate Ensalada with Papaya Chilli Dressing
Sea Bass Ceviche with Avocado, White Corn & Red Onion
Dry-rubbed Short Rib with Smoked Chilli Mayo Soft Tacos
Avocado & Corn Salad with Blackberry Dressing
Mexican-spiced rice with Cilantro & Lime
Chilli-Salted Midnight Black Beans
Guests can also choose one individual plate from an inspired selection of four Signature & Robata dishes, each drawing on the unique and contemporary flavours of modern Mexican cooking. Dishes include:
Robata Mezcal-glazed Paprika Ribs
28-day-aged 6oz Rob-Eye with Cumin, Garlic & Cilantro
Stone Bass with Crushed Andean Chilli Lime Sea Salt
Seared Robata Tenderstem Broccoli, Charred Kale & Shimeji Mushroom Anticucho
Dinner will end with two sharing desserts, and from 9.45pm, guests are invited to lay their inhibitions to rest and party into the dead of night with the exclusive Day of the Dead After Party, with live DJ’s until 1am. Revellers will also be able to indulge in Leicester Square Kitchen’s imaginative Margarita and Cocktail menu or Peter Street Kitchen’s world-class range of Japanese spirits, sake and cocktails, for an additional cost.
