When it comes to dining well in the UK, many people swarm to London, but Liverpool is hot on its heels. This northern city has always been a creative hotspot – its music culture has long rivalled that of the UK capital – and unsurprisingly, that same freshness and joy have spread to its restaurants. These Liverpool restaurants range from gourmet dining to local favourites to the newest ventures. They are well worth visiting if you have recently moved closer to the city.
Bundobust, a northern favourite, offers up vegetarian Indian favourites such as paneer tikka, pav bhaji, and aloo gobi paratha in easy to eat servings. The restaurant offers a cheerful, laid-back ambience, making it great for bringing a group of friends and spending hours diving into various delicacies while sipping on a pint of the brand’s signature Chai Porter.

On a clear day, you can see over the city, over the Mersey River, and all the way to Wales from the 34th floor of the West Tower, which is 300 feet above sea level. When it comes to food, everything from breakfast to afternoon tea and an evening sampling dinner is available at Panoramic 34, but the best time to visit is as the sun sets to view the city both during the day and at night.
