Bold Street’s newest restaurant – Slim’s – will open its doors to the public at lunchtime on Friday, August 30.
Owned by Graffiti Spirits Group, which already operates a number of restaurants in Liverpool city centre, Slim’s takes its inspiration from high-end New York style diners and will aim to cater for all diners, including vegetarians and vegans.
On the menu will be stacked burgers such as cheeseburger, crispy chicken burger, Mac and cheese burger, halloumi burger and more, fried chicken and waffles, and Slim’s Lo Pan Fries – topped with salt and pepper Sui mais, siracha sauce, spring onion and fresh chillis.
There will also be specials served up straight from the venue’s smoker with dishes such as BBQ St Louis pork rib. Other menu staples include the unrivalled roast dinners – that recently won a Food Porn Award – served in metal trays every Sunday and special brunch dishes that are available every Saturday and Sunday.
Vegetarian and vegan offerings include VFC – vegan fried chicken – made up of crispy fried seitan, vegan stacked burger in a beetroot bun, fried seitan and waffles, buffalo cauliflower wings, corn ribs and a selection of tasty salads.
The restaurant is also home to an outdoor terrace area and in the coming will also add a downstairs sports bar that will show popular sports channels and games. Graffiti Spirits Group co-founder Matt Farrell, said: “Slim’s is a really exciting venue and a must-visit for anyone who loves tasty food.
“From breakfast through to dinner, the menu has so much choice and we’ve worked really hard to ensure that it really does cater for all including those who are vegan and vegetarian.
“We have, however, brought back our smoker which means meat lovers will still be able to tuck into some of our slow-cooked specials.”
