GRAFENE REVIEW: creativetourist.com

By – Ian Jones, Food and Drinks Editor

Grafene Restaurant Manchester Tapas Rendered Duck Leg, Herbs, Beet Piccalilli

Grafene is one of the many highly-regarded restaurants on King Street and, by all accounts, has lofty ambitions. This is evidenced by the recent hiring of new head chef, 29 year old Ben Mounsey, who comes from a long line of Michelin starred and AA-rosetted restaurants in the North. But how does his new menu stand up?

We opt for the three courses, with bread and ‘surprises’, for a bargain £45.00. Our first surprise is an ink-black bagel, with a gentle hollandaise sauce, smoked salmon and a crisp green cracker. It’s delicious. As is the bread – two hot-from-the-oven miniature home-baked loafs, served with two unusual types of butter (corn butter and a tomato-salted butter).

Grafene Fine Dining Awarded 2 AA Rosettes

The team at Grafene are celebrating, having just been awarded the prestigious Two AA Rosettes for the first time.

Grafene Restaurant Manchester Tapas Rendered Duck Leg, Herbs, Beet Piccalilli

The Manchester fine-dining restaurant welcomed head chef Ben Mounsey only two months ago. With the launch of his new lunchtime British Tapas and fine-dining dinner menus, Ben has already made a significant impact on the region’s restaurant scene and has now successfully guided the restaurant to achieve this prominent culinary award.

Since Ben joined Grafene, the restaurant has gone from strength from strength with a relaxed, fine-dining offering that aims to reflect the chef’s view of modern British life. Ben’s primary aim is to ensure the menu avoids the obvious. It is infused with surprises, uses only the finest local and British ingredients, and whilst complex in their preparation, dishes are served with his purposeful simplicity.

Commenting on the award Ben Mounsey, said: “Being presented with the Two AA Rosettes so soon after joining Grafene is not something I take for granted. It’s a tribute to the whole team, who have worked tirelessly to ensure that my creative vision is executed perfectly in every dish we serve. It’s been a fantastic two months, and as we are already underway with testing our new summer dishes, more exciting food is to come.”
