Kathryn and Paul Roden, owners of Losehill House Hotel & Spa, are bringing the best of the Orangery Restaurant to Manchester when opening city centre restaurant Grafene in July.
The Roden’s British fine dining venue on King Street will house a restaurant with an all-day food offering signed Losehill House chef Darren Goodwin, an open pastry kitchen and the Island bar. The bar will serve vintage champagne, local beers and scientifically inspired drinks – a nod to Manchester innovation graphene, which inspired the name of the restaurant.
“Grafene is our food and drink interpretation of this exciting new chapter in Manchester’s rich history, and of the excitement and energy there is around its possibilities for science and technology.”
If you are familiar with Losehill House and the Orangery Restaurant you will undoubtedly recognise Darren Goodwin’s influence on the Grafene menu, which consists of a daily-changing a la carte menu, a seven course tasting experience and a selection of small plates. However, Losehill House patrons need not fear – Darren is not leaving the Peaks behind for the bright city lights, and will be overseeing both the Orangery and Grafene kitchens.
