WHERE SHOULD WE EAT IN LIVERPOOL?
Modern. Social. Italian. Three words that sum up the latest foodie hot spot in Liverpool. Situated on the ground floor of FLANNELS Liverpool flagship, Bacino
is serving up brunch classics, alongside pizzas, pasta, aperitivo, cocktails, coffees, and desserts. Think seasonal, fresh ingredients made with creativity.

You might almost walk past this one
but once you’re in, it’s like home. A great spot to sit on your laptop solo or catch up with friends, the menu offers the best combination around: crispy grilled cheese served with a cup of miso onion soup. Left wanting more? Pick up natural wines, chocolate and their own brand of coffee from the shop on exit.
Carbs on the mind? Take a pit stop at the Baltic Bakehouse
, just around the corner from Chapters Of Us. Dubbed the place to bag – as they call it – ‘a decent daily loaf’, it’s a Liverpool institution. Bacon butty in the am? You’re on. A just-baked sourdough for the weekend? Absolutely. Fresh, fluffy pastries, doughnuts and cakes? Yes, yes, yes. Word of warning though: it sells like hot cakes.
One of the most visually pleasing parts of Liverpool? Its Georgian Quarter. Big sweeping streets lined with terraced houses, leafy trees, even a spot of wisteria. And at the end of one of those streets? The Quarter
. Catching the late afternoon sun, the restaurant spills out onto the street, with guests dining and drinking outdoors all summer long. On the menu? Pizzas, pastas, and fresh fish straight from the grill.
Inspired by the founders’ experiences in Paris’ Le Marais, Maray
’s menu takes touches of Middle Eastern cuisine and adds a well-sourced wine list and expertly mixed cocktails. Expect dishes with big flavours, served on small plates. With two spots in the city – one on Bold Street and the other on Royal Albert Docks – you’re spoilt for choice.
Sat a couple of doors along from Maray on the docks, Lerpwl
brings fine dining dishes with a Welsh influence to the waterfront. With a focus on seasonal food and responsibly-sourced product, there’s a few different menus to try: a nine-course tasting, seven-course capricious - which as the name suggests, is constantly changing – and a Sunday sharing special.
‘Support your local pizza dealer’ reads the sign outside. You don’t have to tell us twice. A pizza
bar within a bar – best to get this bit straight - it serves up American-style pizzas by the slice. Think piping hot cheese, slices as big as your head and fresh toppings to mix things up. Ideal for a late-night stop off.
