REVIEW – BRETTA & CO MENU RELAUNCH

REVIEW – BRETTA & CO MENU RELAUNCH After hearing about the excellent food (and wine) Bretta & Co for months, I was so excited to be invited to the launch of their new menu last Friday night! Upon arriving at the bistro, a hidden gem just off busy Bold Street, my expectations were immediately exceeded. The general vibe was amazing, very casual but still classy. As well as being perfect for an evening meal, It would be an ideal location for a morning coffee, or a cocktail in the summer,…

REVIEW – MAMMA MIA

Just like anyone else, I was wondering whether the stage version of Mamma Mia! could reach the lofty heights of the 2008 film, that stormed Hollywood, led by none other than Meryl Streep. After all, it was a film that saw audiences, or more specifically me, up dancing, screaming for an encore, as if at a sold-out concert, not screen five at the local cinema. And the stage version does not disappoint. After walking in from the cold, Liverpool night, I felt like I was transported to the very island…

REVIEW – ROAST COFFEE AND KITCHEN

If like me, you can’t function without a cup of coffee in the morning and you follow every possible coffee house on Twitter and Pinterest in the hope that it may pop out the screen and onto your desk, then you can understand my excitement when a funky New York style coffee house opened around the corner from my office. Although I bring my own coffee into work to enjoy, I am sure everyone will agree that going for a coffee is more of a cultured experience than having a…

REVIEW – TRATTORIA 51’S EVENING MENU

LIVERPOOL’S FINEST ITALIAN RESTAURANT – TRATTORIA 51. Trattoria 51 is based in the more lively and cultural area of Liverpool, just outside the City Centre on Old Hall St. A great location to have an authentic Italian restaurant, especially being in an old Victorian building surrounded by more beautiful architecture. Already having good expectations of the restaurant we were greeted at the ‘front of house’ by a friendly Italian gentleman who then sat us down on a small and cosy table for two under the stairs and brought us some…

REVIEW – This Is Livin Brunch Menu

I had heard nothing but fabulous reviews about Crosby’s new restaurant diamond, This Is Livin and just had to go and see for myself what the brunch menu was like. First things first, the fact that this amazing new restaurant has it’s own car park is a massive plus for me. I could park safely and not worry about the ever efficient traffic warden giving me a ticket! I love the terrace area; I visually imagined sitting out in the summer on there enjoying a strawberry daiquiri. I went along to…
