Cheshire-based Indian restaurant Barton Rouge is set to open its third site in Liverpool’s commercial district following a £500,000 investment.
The restaurant, which is already trading in Chester and Heswall, has acquired the former Anderson’s Bar located on Exchange Street.
Set across two storeys, the 5650 sq ft site will be turned into a dining and drinking destination for 180 covers.
Exclusive to the Liverpool venue will be a new street food concept influenced by traditional Delhi roots, with dishes including chandni chowk and dabbas.
“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,” says Barton Rouge founder Amit Kumar.
“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.”
