Marco Pierre White heading for Pullman
Marco Pierre White is due to bring a new seafood restaurant to the Pullman Liverpool hotel in November.
Wheeler’s of St. James’s will be the second UK restaurant to open under the Wheeler’s brand, which was originally established in 1856.
Oysters are set to be a signature of the 120-cover eatery, which will also incorporate ‘Marco twists’ into its menu such as lobster macaroni with black truffle.
Pullman Liverpool opened in 2016 next to ACC Liverpool, and this restaurant partnership is said to be the first of its kind between the hotel chain and the celebrity chef’s franchise company, Black and White Hospitality.
New coffee shop plan for Bold Street
Plans have been put forward to create a coffee shop in the basement of Bold Street’s Soho’s building.
According to an application to Liverpool City Council for prior approval, the proposed new addition would be a “small café selling coffee and fresh food heated paninis with a prohibition against any fried food”.
Soho’s is also home to the Dig Vinyl record store as well as a clothing retailer on the ground floor.
Spooky ball to raise Whitechapel funds
A freaky feast of food, drinks and entertainment will be served up in Alma De Cuba next month – all in the name of charity.
Signature Living’s spectacular Halloween Ball will take place on 26 October with an aim of raising at least £50,000 for The Whitechapel Centre.
Canapés and drinks are included in the £55 ticket price for the fancy dress event, for which attendees are asked to dress as an iconic celebrity.
There’ll also be star guests and entertainment from a still to be named headline performer and a DJ, as well as the likes of a fortune teller and a sinister wheel of fortune.
