Last night I went along to Neighbourhood in Liverpool to enjoy a press tasting of some of their food and cocktails. Neighbourhood is a stylish restaurant and bar located on Castle Street; this area of Liverpool is one of the best places to go out for food and drinks as there is such a good selection of restaurants and bars in the vicinity. I have visited Neighbourhood in Manchester many times and I am happy that there is now a Neighbourhood in Liverpool too, adding another cool venue to the wide range of bars and restaurants in Liverpool.
Neighbourhood has a strking design aesthetic which is sympathetic to the history of the building which was once a bank. There is a sense of grandeur about the place, with lofty ceilings and a mezzanine level with a stunning private dining space. Many of the original features of the building are still visible, which gives it even more of an air of elegance.
We were welcomed with Prosecco and given some hints about what the evening would entail, including tastings of food and drink as well as a surprise. We took our seats in the opulent private dining area, which has a vast table with wraparound plush leather banquette seating. In no time at all we were served delicious cocktails and platters of dainty food began to arrive at the table. We were treated to a selection of goodies including mini burgers, succulent lobster tacos and prawn tempura in a light and golden batter.
The Prosecco continued to flow as more bottles arrived at the table, complete with sparklers which created a festive atmosphere. The surprise of the evening was revealed as Neighbourhood chef Jordan arrived to give us all a sushi masterclass. He talked us through some fascinating information about the origins of sushi and the history of this popular delicacy, before he started to make us various sushi rolls to enjoy.
We were given the chance to join in, making our own sushi. I enjoyed seeing the various types of sushi being prepared and we also sampled some vegetarian sushi, avocado rolls which were so tasty and perfectly complemented by the cocktails and Prosecco. After so many delicious dishes, the evening concluded with a plate of tempting desserts including chocolate brownies which had a deep flavour and a rich and chewy texture.
Thank you very much to Chloé, who hosted us for the lovely evening. I met some great people and caught up with some friends, it was a fun night and we heard all about the legendary Neighbourhood Nights with live music and cocktails flowing until the early hours so I definitely need to go along soon to enjoy Neighbourhood again.
