Review on Side Door Restaurant

Side Door (formerly the Other Place) is conveniently close to Liverpool's theatres and concert halls, and it does duty as a civilised bistro for meals before and after the show. The place itself – spread over two floors – is unshowy, and the cooking follows suit.

Wide-ranging starters such as confit dug with garlic lentils and salsa verde mayonnaise or chilli-fried squid, king prawn and wild mushroom risotto could precede roast Goosnargh duck breast with banana fritters, chermoula-marinated pork steak or roast cod fillet with spring onion crushed potatoes and red pepper pickle. Close the show with ginger sponge or pannacotta with balsamic strawberries.

Lunches are a snip, and you mustn't miss Side Door's legendary 6oz steak sandwich with caramelised red onions or the spiced Thai chicken cakes. Matching the food is a workmanlike global wine list.
