Green light for Lark Lane Christakis

A well-known Greek restaurant chain could open a new branch on Lark Lane.

Christakis Georgiou, who runs two Christakis restaurants in the city, has had plans approved by Liverpool City Council to turn a former off-licence on the South Liverpool street into his latest eatery.

Christakis opened his first restaurant, Christakis Greek Taverna, on York Street in 1999 with Christakis Greek Restaurant following on Smithdown Road in 2012.

Revamp for Medjool

Meanwhile in other Lark Lane food news, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern-inspired restaurant Medjool Bistro has announced that it’s to undergo a complete revamp.

In a social media post, the eatery revealed it’s shifting its focus onto “daytimes of breakfasts, brunches and homemade cakes” and “evenings of tapas, tasty small plates, beers, gins and wines”.

As well as the new menu Medjool, which will close for the reboot on 28 January, will be getting a new look and a new name.

Restaurant plan for ornate Bold Street office building

An ornate office building on Bold Street is to become the site of a new restaurant or café.

The council has awarded planning permission to Dr A Sahab for a mixed-use development at 101-103 Bold Street – the former offices of Busi & Stephenson Ltd.

Under Dr Sahab’s proposals, which also include six apartments, the restaurant/café will be spread across the building’s ground floor and basement.

Local architecture firm NS Architects, which worked on Mowgil’s two Liverpool restaurants, has designed proposals for the scheme.
