Duke Street Food and Drink Market has welcomed a new vendor – a seafood and fish kitchen named Kelp. The new concept replaces Cinder, and joins the five other kitchens Bone & Block, Indigo Greens, Cucina Di Vincenzo, Cahita and Ginger.
Bone & Block prides itself on high quality, locally sourced red meat. Kelp will serve up delicious fish dishes including two types of Colchester oysters. Natural oysters are served with lemon and Tabasco sauce. Crispy oysters come with shaved fennel and apple salad. Dishes range from: mussels with ciabatta; gambas pil pil, crispy fried fish, classic fish and chips, grilled hake and whole dover sole.
Taking over from Cinder, Kelp will add a vibrant offering to the market and give guests a fresh variety of new dishes to try. Just like Bone & Block, Kelp’s fish and seafood is locally sourced and of a really high quality. The result is flavoursome and carefully crafted plates.
Matt Farrell, co-director of Duke Street Food and Drink Market, said: “We’re really excited that Kelp has opened in the Market and is now available for guests to try. The new seafood and fish kitchen will provide a unique offering that hasn’t been previously available… including the natural and crispy oysters which are simply delicious. …Bringing in Kelp has created excitement and intrigue for fish fans and we’re really proud to have the team on board.”
John Ennis, co-director of the market, added: “We’ve got a really wide and varied offering across the five other kitchens. But felt that a high quality fish and seafood menu would ensure there’s something for everyone at the market.”
Harry Marquart, owner of Kelp and Bone & Block, added: “Creating a seafood and fish focussed kitchen has been fantastic. Both myself and the team are really excited to be open. (We are) providing the same high quality and beautifully executed dishes that Bone & Block is known for, with a focus on seafood. Jack Wanless and Dariusz Podsialdy have been with Bone and Block since the beginning, they are now part owners of KELP. They have a wealth of experience between them and without them it simply would not be possible.
“We hope Kelp will bring a new and exciting addition to Liverpool’s culinary scene. Dishes such as our oysters are handpicked and hand graded to ensure they’re in the best condition.”
Duke Street Food and Drink Market is open from Wednesday to Sunday, from 12-10pm. For those who may not feel able to dine in, there is a click and collect option.
