Bread Street Kitchen & Bar
The sixth Bread Street (not counting Dubai, China and Singapore) has arrived in Liverpool, but it’s not all sandwiches and sourdough – we’re talking classic Gordon Ramsay dishes, from beef wellington and traditional fish and chips to rare-breed steaks and seasonal salads.
Yes, this is one of the TV chef’s many outlets, giving you the chance to see what all the fuss is about, but without paying through the nose. The menu is described as European, although there are other international influences here, with the likes of butter chicken and cashew nut curry with saffron rice and poppadum giving a nod to the Indian subcontinent and the flavours of tamarind spiced chicken wings with spring onions and coriander – a BSK classic, we’re told – hailing from south east Asia. Continental favourites include spinach and ricotta cannelloni and Mediterranean-inspired steamed sea bream with braised leeks, cherry tomatoes, samphire and brown shrimps. Local produce features, with Cumbrian beef in the potted brisket starter with piccalilli and Cumbrian saddleback pork belly slow roasted and served with Braeburn apple puree. Round the clock dining is promised, with breakfast served from 8am from Friday to Sunday; think eggs benny and a full vegan with scrambled tofu, spinach, quinoa, mushroom, tomato, mung beans (right?) and avocado. The Sunday roast is all about beef: rare breed British beef Himalayan salt dry aged for a minimum of 35 days – sirloin, prime rib, Porterhouse, rib-eye… If you don’t do beef, there’s spatchcocked poussin with chimichurri sauce.
Desserts include the ubiquitous sticky toffee pudding and – a nod to Chef Ramsay’s heritage – a cranachan cheesecake with raspberry sorbet and Monkey Shoulder 100% malt Scotch whisky. The chocolate fondant with salted caramel ice cream is “heaven on a plate” according to Insta.
