Grado is celebrity chef Paul Heathcote's latest business venture in the heart of Manchester - a £1m traditional Spanish Tapas restaurant offering an eclectic mix of regional and new wave Spanish food.
Paul, who owns 15 restaurants across the North West, decided to adopt a Spanish theme after spending time in the country and identifying a gap in the British restaurant market for “something a little different".
Paul said: “Having spent time in Spain, I have identified that the country has some of the most exiting food in the world. Spain is actually one of the leads in Europe as far as having the largest number of restaurants with Michelin Stars".
And with Grado in Piccadilly, Paul is promising something “really exciting.”
He said: “When people think of Spanish, many just think of Tapas and a bottle of Spanish plonk but there is so much more to be discovered. Grado provides that special something with lots of unusual dishes. Many of the Spanish wines which we will be serving are also relatively unknown."
Paul has taken many ideas from the Spain, and in particular San Sebastian - the Tapas centre of the country - and brought them to Grado in New York Street.
Grado, which has 80 covers, provides customers with the opportunity to watch the chefs as they prepare the food with an open kitchen design.
Spain is a country with great produce and nearly everything served at Grado has been imported from Spain, even all of the crockery and all of the furnishings, providing customers with a true Spanish experience when they visit Grado. The 100 bin-wine list, 16 of which by the glass, are also 100% Spanish.
Grado Manchester Open all day, Grado serves tapas, hams, paellas, spit roast meat, grilled fish and clay baked flatbreads in a smart, casual & modern environment with an atmospheric theatre style kitchen.
Tapas is available both at the bar, cooked directly in front of you as you sip a glass of sherry or one of the many imported Spanish beers, and in the stunning restaurant itself.
There's also an a la carte menu to choose from boasting such delights as Paella, Bomba Baked Rice, Arroz Negro, Scallops a la Plancha, Hake with Clams, and Braised Rabbit with Rioja.
For meat lovers, the Daily Roast from the Charcoal Oven offers a cut of the day, with the likes of Roast Beef, Suckling Pig, Roast Lamb, Roast Chicken, Roast Pork, Roast Duck and Baked Roast Salmon in Cornmeal Pastry on daily rotation.

Grado Reviews

"Having already ventured away from his signature Lancashire dishes, to be found at his Longridge and Simply Heathcote restaurants, with the Italian Olive Press chain, it was interesting to hear of Paul Heathcote's plans to offer tapas and Spanish cuisine with Grado. From our first visit we can confirm it was a journey we're glad he has taken.

The building is very impressive to say the least. The huge quality wine collection that greets you at the door hints at what you're about to recieve. The decor is plush, a nice array of orange and brown and a welcoming layout that allows you to choose the less formal tapas bar, complete with its Teppanyaki-style kitchen, or a more formal a la carte sit down meal.

We opted for the impressive tapas, the Mushroom Croquetas, Octopus with Lemon Oil, and Pinchitos Morunos all being highlights worth returning for alone. The 100 bin wine list (16 available by the glass) is impressive but a special mention has to go to the Sherries. The La Gitana Manzanilla was gorgeously crisp whilst the Manzanilla Pasada was delightful and certainly worth adding to any order.

The service was very friendly and the atmosphere was welcoming. In a city with plenty of Tapas restaurants on offer, Grado is likely to stand out from the competition and be a big success. We will be certainly be returning soon!" - (December 2007)
