Mitchells & Butlers (M&B) has opened the first site under its new fast-casual concept Son of Steak in Trinity Square, Nottingham. 

In January, MCA revealed that M&B that planned to pilot a new counter service, fast casual steak offer, as part of its investment in new concept development and innovation in the marketplace.

It said that Son of Steak would offer “great steak, served simply”.

The menu focuses on “quality, hand selected products including wet and dry aged steak, selected for its flavour - sourced from carefully selected cattle reared on sustainable British and Irish farms, before being matured for at least 28 days”.

A range of sides & sauces includes freshly hand cut chips, cooked on site, to secret steak sauce, and more adventurous guests can sample a steak bao bun, inspired by Taiwanese street food.

Son of Steak also offers mojito’s on tap.

Chefs will be cooking with a Josper Charcoal oven, giving the Flat Iron steak a smoky, sweet finish.

Dennis Deare, divisional director at M&B who is overseeing the concept said: “We’re pleased to take the opportunity to open a new steak offer and explore serving steak in a fast casual environment. In fact, it’s all about the simplicity - expert cooking, and good food without the fuss. As this is a pilot site we’ll take the learnings, both operationally and from guest feedback over the next few weeks and months, before we make any decision about the possible future opportunities and opening plans.”
