Masterchef: The Professionals winner and Michelin starred chef Anton Piotrowski is looking to open a restaurant in Liverpool, and he’s looking for £60,000 with which to do it.
“We plan to open a intimate restaurant called Röski in the heart of the city of Liverpool on Rodney Street,” he says.
“It will be a super relaxed dining experience, but with with a Michelin star chef. I will be behind the stove every day. It’s affordable fine dining – and I hate the word ‘fine’ – but expect big flavours, big smiles, great service and a restaurant that people love coming back to.
“We are asking for £60,000 to kit out and furnish the restaurant and kitchen and renovate a downstairs store room into a private dining room for up to eight people. We plan to operate and trade five days a week so that we can maintain levels of consistency for all our diners and keep wage costs to a minimum.”
Following on from the success of Wreckfish, which saw Gary Usher’s team raise a record-breaking £200,000, it seems like a great time and place to do it.
Anton says: “We aim to be one of the best restaurants in the country in the hopes that people will come from all areas of the UK to dine with us. We will be serving a one of a kind dining experience for up to 40 covers with a taster inspired menu that will change on a weekly basis depending on what we can source the very best, fresh local ingredients from local suppliers.
“Our goal is to run a weekly changing taster menu – a four course taster menu at £40 and accompanying wine flight at £30, a seven course taster menu at £70 with an accompanying wine flight at £50, a pre-theatre menu with three courses and a glass of bubbles for £30.”
