Watch out for these exciting new openings in the 0151

With Liverpool becoming quite the hub of activity as of late, from Eurovision preparation to football, we thought we'd do a round up of the latest new restaurants that have recently opened or are set to do so very soon.

20230412 Stoke Restaurant
Stoke Restaurant @StokeLiverpool

Stoke Restaurant

7 Lime St, Liverpool L11RD

Mean Eyed Cat @TheMeanEyedCat

Mean Eyed Cat

71a Seel St, Liverpool L1 4AZ


After finding success with its first venue in Leeds, the Deep-South inspired dive bar, recently opened its doors on Seel Street, offering up two of our favourite things, pizza and booze. Before 9pm, the bar offers free 6" pizzas with every drink ordered, and more uniquely, is home to 'the dice game' where upon ordering, if you roll a six, you get your round for free! Keeping in tune with its Deep-South roots, drinks at the Mean Eyed Cat aren't what you'd first think, from apple pie and pecan pie shots to a pb&j old fashioned and a cocktail named pineapple bbq.

The Reader Bar and Restaurant @ReaderBarAndRestaurant

The Reader Bar and Restaurant

103 Mount Pleasant, Liverpool L3 5TB

Describing itself as a social enterprise, The Reader encourages customers to pop in for anything from a coffee to a meal, from their bistro style menu inspired by European flavours using locally sourced, seasonal produce.

20230412 Kai Bai Bo
KaiBaiBo @KaiBaiBoSlaterSt


5 Slater St, Liverpool L1 4BW


The home of the meat donut, Kaibaibo serves up killer Korean street foods such as bulgogi steak and katsu chicken sandwiches, to rice bowls and ramen. Opened by brothers, Robin and Chris, KaiBaiBo, nestled on Slater Street, combines Chris' passion for creating high quality food, and Robin's travels through Busan, South Korea, and ramen bars in Izakaya in Japan. 

Fun fact, KaiBaiBo means rock, paper, scissors in Korean, which is likely a game you'll be playing with your compadres as you decide what to order first, if not the whole menu.

If I could eat cake and pastries all day I would, and this is probably the place I'd go to do it at. This micro-patisserie and bakehouse serves up a range of baked treats Thursday to Saturday from 10am-4pm, but you'll need to be quick if you want to get your hands on some of their signature dishes such as the pina colada danish or ham and cheese croissants as they often sell out super fast.

The Green Man

43-45 Lark Ln, Liverpool L17 8UW


With a dimly lit, and stone brick interior, The Green Man makes for a cosy spot to grab a cask ale or two, a pie, and the opportunity to pet a dog if there are any about, due to its dog friendly nature. If a cask ale isn't for you, not to worry, they also serve a variety of cocktails and spirits. Why not pop in with a friend, grab a drink, and battle it out with a board game, pool, or darts?
