The Florist is a heavily styled restaurant between the Knowledge and Georgian quarters in the centre of Liverpool right near the waterfront. This is an ideal spot to come with friends for brunch, dinner or Sunday lunch. The interior is a very cool whitewashed space punctuated with pops of colour coming from - surprise - floral designs with interesting trinkets like vintage bikes and bird cages adding to the atmosphere. In the centre of the restaurant sits several white, almost frosted, trees that extend from the floor to the ceiling, looking both pleasingly dramatic and somewhat breathtaking.
An extensive brunch menu features various different things: an egg and tofu section offers things like scrambled tofu and baked shakshuka, a hearty section gives way to the likes of a sausage wheel as well as a bakery, fruits and grains and a sweets section, think nutella French toast. The main menu is a list of tempting options, The Florist favourites offer some more classic choices like steak, fish and chips and a cheeseburger as well as offering a range of kebabs that come with sriracha fries, flatbread and chilli jam with various fillings such as lamb kofta and chicken and chorizo.
You can choose from nibbles such as bang bang cauliflower and salt and pepper chicken wings that would be perfect either as starters or to go with drinks. The drinks menu has a range of wine, beer and spirits but focuses mainly on a healthy cocktail list which is split between floral and classic cocktails. They also have a roast menu on Sunday’s which leave nothing to be desired, all of the main cuts can be paired with sharing sides, cauliflower cheese and pork, sage and onion stuffing - this can be made bottomless for a bit extra and allows you to indulge in bottomless spritz, Prosecco or a house beer.
