A new concept bar and restaurant is coming to Allerton Road this week.

From the team behind Miyagi and Lucha Libre comes The Dark Kitchen & Bar – an exciting new concept which will feature different menus on three month residencies.

After a successful trial period on a takeaway only basis throughout the coronavirus pandemic, The Dark Kitchen & Bar will open its doors to the public on June 17 from 5pm.

The first menu will be Sushi x Bae which will feature Hello Sushi - a new imagining of some iconic Japanese dishes alongside a full hand-rolled sushi menu as well as the popular vegan Bae burgers.

Hello Sushi will feature fresh poke bowls, lobster and crayfish rolls as well as a full sushi menu, made up of fresh fish and meat options, as well as some amazing vegan alternatives, including a watermelon sashimi.

After a full kitchen refurb, a tailor-made sushi bar has been installed to allow for authentic, fresh sushi to be made in house daily. It will be the first foray into sushi for the business, with particular attention being paid to the rice, which will be cooked and seasoned every two hours to make it as authentic as possible.

Bae Burgers have been on the takeaway menu since mid-2020 and remain one of the most popular menu offerings. From the classic to the Bae-yoncé, the team are so confident in the brilliance of the vegan burgers, they’ve chosen not to offer a meat alternative. They hope to show that no compromise has to be made when it comes to taste and flavour when using a meat alternative, with these burgers already being a success with vegans and meat-eaters alike.

The Dark Kitchen & Bar’s new menu will also highlight the team's commitment to bringing fresh, sustainable produce to the city through their partnership with local business Greens for Good.

Greens for Good are based in the Baltic Triangle and use hydroponic technology to grow a variety of greens for local businesses and homes alike. Its weekly boxes provide the kitchen with greens, herbs and edible flowers.

The drinks menu will also have a Sushi x Bae spin, then change alongside the food rotation.

Cocktails have been curated to specifically compliment the flavours of the food menu while also incorporating light, summer notes.

The cocktail menu is completed with a drink in collaboration with Liverpool business Zest. Zest is owned by two previous employees of the company, who’ve now ventured into the independent spirit business creating artisanal, handcrafted limoncello. A select wine and beer range complete the menu.

The Dark Kitchen & Bar team are excited to bring this new concept to the bustling Allerton Road area and to welcome guests back for the first time in 2021.
