Summary

This “excellent, innovative independent on trendy Bold Street” is inspired by the North African/Middle Eastern cuisine found in the Marais district of Paris and “trying hard to be trendy like Ottolenghi”. The place is “very buzzy”, with “fantastic small plates”, “great wine and cocktails” – and it’s “brilliant value”. “Good idea to book as it gets very busy”.

Summary

“Often-unusual combinations of ingredients in small dishes” (it’s slightly “hard to define the cooking style”, but it’s somewhat Ottolenghi-esque) creates “a yearning to keep on returning” to this “lively”, “truly unique and impressive” city-centre cocktail bar/tapas café. It has a new Allerton Street spin-off now too, “frequented by ladies-who-lunch”.

Summary

Comparisons with London’s Palomar and Ottolenghi crop up in reports on this “very noisy, crowded and tightly packed” member of the Bold Street scene (“advertised as a cocktail bar, but the food’s the best bit”). All feedback says its “eclectic” sharing plates of “unusual Middle-Eastern-leaning, seasonal food” are a wow! “Not since Paddy and Dave opened the Everyman Theatre Bistro in 1968 has Liverpool seen a more exciting development in its restaurant scene!”

Summary

A “good newcomer on the Bold St scene” serving “Middle Eastern-inspired food and cocktails”; the formula is “mostly small plates, some big ones and lots of imagination” and, whilst they “try a bit too hard”, “most dishes are really good”.
