The year in which Liverpool has been a capital of culture has hardly caused a sea change when it comes to the city’s traditionally dire restaurants. Its erstwhile culinary champions seem to have lost their way. It must say something that one of the city’s most eminent and arguably best all-rounder – Everyman Bistro – is a self-service canteen that’s been in business more than 30 years!
Perhaps Panoramic is what we’ve all been waiting for? It’s early days, and it certainly has location, location and location to recommend it.
