7 Liverpool Road, Birkdale, SOUTHPORT, PR8 4AR
Marc and Michaela Vérité's place is the essence of a neighbourhood bistro. The tables are closely packed, the staff are clued-up, and the place generates a contented buzz. Start perhaps with a daily special such as baked crab thermidor jazzed up with some crispy samphire and croûtes. Next up, roast haunch of red deer is a modern number with a tasting of pear and fois gras cromesquis, finished with a deeply flavoursome red wine jus, or go for Scottish mussels in marinière mode. 'Le steaks' include rib-eye, fillet and Chateaubriand for two (served with frites, salad and choice of classic sauce). Finish with tarte Tatin or rhubarb and custard millefeuille.
