The news follows the Fulham Shore-owned brand making its northern debut in Manchester in 2021.
With 162 covers, including 38 outside, the space will be fitted out in The Real Greek’s signature contemporary style, featuring white and blue accents throughout, and a range of Mediterranean-inspired art and photography.
The Real Greek says it will deliver an authentic Greek dining experience, serving cold and hot meze, souvlaki wraps and Greek salads, as well as sweets including baklava.
Occupying a 3,900 sq ft unit on Paradise Street, the The Real Greek is the eleventh F&B and leisure operator to commit to the Grosvenor-owned destination so far this year, and takes the total area of F&B and leisure space signed or opened at Liverpool ONE in 2023 to 156,000 sq ft.
In addition to The Real Greek, Turtle Bay has ‘reaffirmed its commitment to the scheme’ by upsizing its existing unit on Hanover Street to create a 3,700 sq ft flagship. Loretta’s Parkside Tavern, an independent café cocktail bar, has also recently opened within a 1,600 sq ft site on Chavasse Park.
“We have always been keen to expand to Liverpool, as it is renowned for its diverse and high-quality hospitality scene, so securing a home for our new restaurant right in the heart of Liverpool ONE is a hugely exciting announcement for us,” says The Real Greek managing director Nabil Mankarious.
“We are thrilled to be making our debut in this vibrant city, and can’t wait to introduce our authentic Greek flavours to a brand-new audience.”
Rob Deacon, asset management director at Grosvenor, added: “The Real Greek is an excellent addition to Liverpool ONE’s diverse selection of F&B operators, offering yet another unique option for our visitors. Along with the fantastic brands to have committed to the destination this year, including Gravity MAX and Flight Club, The Real Greek’s debut is further compelling evidence of the sustained demand for Liverpool ONE among leading operators.”
