For seasonal plates and a large helping of famous Liverpool hospitality, head to Manifest. This wine bar and restaurant has been created with the food and wine curious in mind - an industrial style restaurant found at the heart of the city’s Baltic Triangle.
The Manifest name was inspired by the area’s shipping-trade history, and this isn’t the only way that the restaurant embraces its local roots. The team at Manifest take great pride in sourcing high quality, seasonal goods to support local producers and wine makers. Service is attentive but informal to allow diners to eat and drink at their leisure. The team aspires to make as much as they can in-house, so you can expect freshly made bread, homemade oils, preserves and pickles, along with charcuterie boards of seasonal produce.
The menu is filled with snacks, small plates and large plates so any appetite can be catered for. For bar snacks teamed with a glass of wine, there is the house sourdough with Lancashire whey butter or the ‘still warm’ salt and vinegar crisps. Small plates include the likes of duck hash with duck egg jam, celeriac in a thyme filo and torched sea trout with sea greens. Large plates are hearty and packed full of local produce, with choices like roast pork belly with red cabbage and beer pickled onion and mashed potato, or Liverpool Bay sea bass, parsnip and King Oyster mushrooms with a bordelaise sauce. Decadent desserts and cheese boards are also available as the perfect finish to your meal.
If you'd rather not have to make the decision yourself, there's a chef's choice menu which includes a curated selection of its signature dishes. You can also opt for a three glass wine flight to pair with your meal.
The restaurant is able to cater for all dietary requirements - including gluten free and vegan - if diners give advance notice.
