1884 Dock Street Kitchen team to launch latest venture in one of the region’s new dining hot-spots.
The team behind 1884 Dock Street Kitchen in Hull will launch their latest venture next month in one of the region’s new dining hot-spots.
James MacLeod-Birch, director of the restaurant, will open Steak\1884 around the corner in Humber Street, in the regenerated Fruit Market area.
James will be joined by head chef Laura Waller and deputy general manager Gary Laughton, both part of the senior management team which helped Dock Street Kitchen secure a string of restaurant awards and glowing reviews from national food critics.
An opening date of Friday 16 November has been targeted for a restaurant inspired by the art deco interior of the new building and by the popularity of steaks at Dock Street Kitchen.
James, who heads a team of around 12, said: “It will be different from anywhere else in the area. There are places that serve good steaks but this will be a step up. The building is in the style of a New York steak house with its green leather and touches of art deco, and it’s just the right size to really focus on service, providing an engaging experience in an intimate environment.”
The opening of Steak\1884 will complete a reshuffle of the group’s businesses, which began in June with the closure of Dock Street Kitchen. 1884 Marina Bar opened in those premises in August and will be joined next week by Barrow Boys, which opened in July and is relocating from the Humber Street property to offer larger-scale entertainment and a late licence.
Cucina 1884 will open in Hessle in November as a high-end Italian restaurant with a new counter service concept.
