Portuguese restaurant to open in West Kirby


The owners of a well-known Liverpool bar are to open their first restaurant in Wirral.
Steven Burgess and Josh Moore of BoBo Group who own and run the award-winning wine bar, tasca and charcuteria, BoBo on Castle Street, the city’s only authentic Iberian bar, have announced that their new BoBo restaurant will open on Banks Road on 17 August, in the unit formerly occupied by Mon Ami.
Like its big city sister, the restaurant on the corner of Banks Road and Salisbury Avenue will concentrate on the flavours of Portugal and Spain.
BoBo in Liverpool has been described as “the best small bar in the city centre”, named runner up in Best Bar in the North by the prestigious Observer Food Monthly and shortlisted as Best Bar in the City Region at the Merseyside Independent Business awards.
Steven and Josh, former AA rosette chefs, have extensive experience in hospitality.

They have opened well known venues across the region such as Camp & Furnace and Love Lane Brewery, and most recently leveltap in Liverpool ONE.

Steven said: “With BoBo in Liverpool we wanted to stand out from the crowd and be different and that’s what we are aiming for in West Kirby.

“BoBo in Liverpool has won a reputation for being fun and laid back but with a premium on the experience of everyone who walks through the door and delivering great service for our guests.

“BoBo West Kirby will also have those elements as well as a menu that reflects our passion for Iberian cuisine, where food is akin to religion.”
The restaurant’s all-day menus will consist of popular favourites such as spins on brunch, lazy lunch plates and sharing dishes. And extending their love affair with classic Portuguese dishes, BoBo’s dessert menu also celebrates national icons including Pastéis de Nata and dishes that are reminiscent of Spain, Portugal and Southern France.

Josh added: “For us, authenticity is everything and we are trying to do something totally different with our food and to push and challenge and bring others on that journey. We will be working with local food and wine suppliers wherever possible, but many of the menus’ elements will be sourced from Spain and Portugal.  It’s the same with our wine selections, which are carefully curated but also super accessible to everyone who enjoys a glass, as well as with our list of homemade sangrias and cocktails which recall holidays in the Iberian sunshine, whatever the weather.”
