HERE AT HIS & HERS, WE TAKE ALL FOOD-RELATED NEWS RATHER SERIOUSLY (TOO SERIOUSLY SOME WOULD SAY). SO NATIONAL SEAFOOD WEEK (WHICH STARTS ON FRIDAY) HAS BEEN ON OUR RADAR FOR WEEKS. AND WE’RE TREATING IT AS A REAL THING, WHICH CALLS FOR MENU PLANNING!
Clearly they take their seasonal menu planning very seriously at Marco Pierre White’s Wheeler’s of St James oyster bar and grill, too, as they sent us the pictured menu highlight, which we’ve been staring at ever since.
Sadly, we can’t feast on this dish in Liverpool just yet, although a Wheeler’s will be opening at the luxury four star Pullman at Monarch’s Quay, next month, so we don’t have too long to wait. And in the meantime, It’s a testament to our professionalism that we’re still here writing about food, rather than hounding the chef to open the restaurant early, giving us a chance to try the dish for ourselves.
Wheeler’s is one of the oldest fish restaurants in the world and counts Walt Disney and British painter Lucien Freud as diners over the decades.
About Oysters Rockerfeller:
One of the most exquisite dishes on the restaurant’s menu is Oysters Rockefeller, which is based on the original recipe created in 1899 at the world-renowned Antoine’s Restaurant in New Orleans.
Three oysters are baked in their shell and topped with finely chopped greens and parmesan. The dish is a delicious classic.
The menu features incredible dishes with lobster, quail eggs, langoustines, Morecambe Bay shrimp and Atlantic prawns.
Sumptuous 35 day aged steaks from Royal Warrant appointed butcher Campbell Brothers in Edinburgh are also on the menu at one of the most exciting new restaurants to open in Liverpool.
Wheeler’s of St James at Pullman Liverpool opens on Saturday 18 November and we are counting down the days!
