Top Blade Steakhouse will be housed in the unit formerly occupied by Chopin and represents an investment of £100,000, creating 20 jobs in the process.
Identifying a gap in the Northern Ireland food scene for a venue to specialise in flat iron steak, Top Blade Steakhouse is the brainchild of 22-year-old entrepreneur Zara Peden.
The new 1,400 sq. ft restaurant will specialise in flat iron steak and a much more affordable and accessible steak eatery. Top Blade’s menu will provide a concise selection, championing great steak for everyone coupled with unrivalled taste.
Speaking on Top Blade Steakhouse, Managing Director, Zara Peden said, “Having visited flat iron steak restaurants in Soho, I knew I wanted to bring this concept to Belfast. Northern Ireland has a longstanding love for steak however from my research, the price point can often act as a barrier. People today desire quality, tasty food, that is great value for money and that is exactly what we offer. I don’t believe people should pay extra to satisfy their steak craving. We have teamed up with Carnbrooke Meats in Dromora to ensure our guests have the best steak possible without paying a premium. I am confident the people of Northern Ireland and beyond will love what we have to offer.”
Zara added, “Belfast has experienced a renaissance of its food scene recently and I knew I wanted Top Blade to join the bustling hospitality sector in the city. St Anne’s Square presented the perfect location for my new restaurant. I am excited to join the impressive roster of eateries in this wonderful development. I believe that each restaurant in the square has something unique to offer and it is vital to give consumers a plethora of options.”
As well as the mouth-watering steak, Top Blade will offer a delicious selection of sides, representing some of Northern Ireland’s favourites, including buttery champ, sweet potato fries, market greens and a range of sauces to serve with the steak. Vegan customers can avail of the speciality seitan steak as well as vegan friendly side options. The 46-seater restaurant will be open Monday – Thursday from 4pm -11pm and Friday-Sunday from 12pm until 11pm. Top Blade will also offer a bespoke cocktail and wine menu as well as a tailored selection of beers and spirits.
