Served in the light and open surroundings of The Grand Cafe, Chef Stefano Leone has created dishes such as Lobster Cobb Salad (£18.50), Tuna Poke Tacos (£14.50), and Glazed BBQ Salmon with sweet miso, edamame, spinach and donburi sauce (£16.50), all inspired by the vibrant colours and flavours of California’s western coast. Guests who order a dish from the California menu will receive a complimentary California cocktail until 31st August.
Upstairs, The Threadneedle Bar, a vibrant bar in The Royal Exchange, has collaborated with designer swimwear brand Orlebar Brown and Ciroc Ultra-Premium Vodka to offer all customers who purchase an Orlebar Brown cocktail a 10% discount on selected items at the Orlebar Brown shop within The Royal Exchange. The refreshing cocktails have been inspired by Orlebar Brown's much loved swimwear and their favourite holiday locations across the globe.
Examples include Hollywood Green featuring camomile infused Ciroc vodka, lemon juice, camomile syrup, cloudy apple juice; L.A sour made with Bulleit bourbon, muscovado syrup, lemon juice, angostura bitter, egg white & peach bitter and the Pink Mai Tai, which uses Gold rum, orange curacao, orgeat syrup, lime juice and fresh raspberries.
Continuing the Californian theme, Cîroc will be bringing the sound of summer to The Royal Exchange with their live “Cîroc Summer Sessions” every Thursday evening throughout August. So, at least if the weather isn't playing ball (which let's be honest, it hasn't been), you can still experience a small taste of summer right in the heart of The City.
