Two new restaurants lined up for Liverpool city centre

Liverpool city centre could be about to add two new restaurants to its burgeoning food and drink offering.

Canadian street food eatery Caribou Poutine is opening on Slater Street next month while plans for a new Wok & Go branch have been revealed.

Caribou Poutine, which serves up numerous variations of Canada’s national dish poutine, is setting up shop at the previously vacant 6 Slater Street in May.

Meanwhile, Liverpool ONE owner Grosvenor has applied for planning permission to convert the former BBC shop on Hannover Street into Wok & Go’s third Liverpool outlet.

The Asian restaurant chain already has a site on Bold Street and another just minutes away from Hannover Street, next to Central Station.

A statement issued to Liverpool City Council reads: “The proposal seeks to change the use of the vacant unit to allow Wok & Go to occupy it. The plans will not increase the footprint of the existing building.

“Restaurants have an important role to play in terms of enhancing a centre’s vitality and viability as they form part of the primary shopping area to enhance the customer experience. The proposal will complement the existing eateries Turtle Bay, Wahaca, Busaba, Red’s True BBQ and Roxy Ballroom in this location that front onto Hanover Street and College Lane.”
