Review on Pilgrim Restaurant
The BBC's My Million Pound menu winners, James Duffield, Managing Director, Dave Bone, Chef Director and Anthony Power, Brand and Marketing Director have launched their Pilgrim Restaurant in the heart of Liverpool's Georgian Quarter. It's the flagship restaurant set in the latest culinary hub of Duke Street Market, a converted 100-year old warehouse. Located on the mezzanine level of the market overlooking the hustle and bustle below, it has a minimalist style with exposed brick walls, a pretty tiled bar overlooking the open kitchen and a sunny terrace great for al fresco dining.
The restaurant takes its name and inspiration from the Camino, an ancient pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela that has taken place since the ninth century, with currently 12 established and well-travelled routes that cross the borders of France, Spain and Portugal. At the hub of the kitchen is the live fire hearth, where they produce a modern take on classic Spanish and Iberian dishes cooked over wood charcoal. Focusing on the finest seasonal produce the concise menu consists of a selection of bar snacks, small and large plates. To start the ball rolling you might opt for suckling pig croquettas or octopus tentacle with guindilla salsa. Among the large plates look for rack of kid goat with salsa limon or from the sea hake steak with mojo picon. There's just the options of two desserts to close the show in the shape of St James tart paired with grilled apricot and fennel ice cream or chocolate, sea salt and olive oil mousse.
There's a carefully curated selection of 50 rotating wines, 30 vermouths, as well as Spanish sherries and creative cocktails on tap.
