New Indian street food concept for Liverpool

THE old Anderson’s bar is to get a spicy new makeover when Indian restaurant Barton Rouge opens later this month.

The charcoal pit and contemporary Indian kitchen, which currently operates across Chester and Heswall, says it will introduce a novel new street food concept exclusively to Liverpool.

They’ve spent half a million quid to transform the 5650 sq. ft. Exchange Street venue into a vibrant dining and drinking destination with 180 covers over two floors. 

Thirty jobs have been created and the launch is part of a grand plan for UK franchise domination.

Founder of Barton Rouge Amit Kumar said: “Having established the brand back in 2011, Barton Rouge has evolved to become a one-of-a-kind Indian foodie establishment that blends traditional home cooking, which has been passed down through centuries, with a refreshing splash of modern-day culinary precision and visage. When it comes to Indian restaurants our ethos is to shy away from the take-away culture and instead capture the true essence of fine dining.

“In order to establish our third venue in a setting that reflects what we’re all about as a brand, we conducted a series of in-depth market research over the past two years to pinpoint a prime city centre location. Our new cosmopolitan postcode will provide a sleek and sophisticated setting that will allow guests to explore new-age Indian cuisine at its finest.”

Expect Old Delhi style street food such as chandni chowk and dabbas in both lunch and dinner form. Menu highlights include lamb pepper fry, Hyderabadi gosht, neelgiri chicken, dal makahni, saffron chicken, Paneer Lambardar and Punjabi kukkad choley. 

Kumar added: “We are excited to bring a true taste of India to Liverpool and take guests on a cultural journey that will broaden their culinary horizons. As part of on-going company developments, we plan to expand across the nation’s most prominent cities to create a never-been-done-before franchise of new-age Indian cuisine.”
