Maray, 91 Bold Street, Liverpool, L1 4HF – Visit Now
Food-lovers should make their way to Maray, tout suite. Inspired by the historic district of Le Marais, Paris, the food more than matches up to our cross-channel cousins. Largely based around small plates and prevailing food trends, the dishes are beautiful and surprisingly affordable, designed for both sharing and cooing over.
The menu is heavy on the non-meat dishes, but carnivores shouldn’t be put off, the buttermilk chicken thighs are among the best in the city, with the lamb koftas a close second. The venue is small but perfectly formed and the staff impossibly friendly, with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the ingredients that make up each dish. If possible, go with a group as you’ll want to explore every inch of the menu.
