Barton Rouge Opens in Liverpool

Liverpool is no stranger to Indian cuisine, but when a new Indian restaurant opens its doors in our great city, you will have to be up very early to beat the Unlock Liverpool team to the mark. We take the concept of being a local foodie to the extreme and pride ourselves in giving our honest opinions on any new restaurant, bar or coffee shop that springs up in Liverpool.

Barton Rouge Opens in Liverpool’s Commercial District

July welcomes Barton Rouge to Liverpool with open arms. Promising an intimate dining experience with memorable and authentic Indian cuisine, our expectations for this new Indian restaurant in Liverpool were high. We were invited to sample their new and exciting menu and had the pleasure of being one of the first to taste a spoonful of their aromatic curries.

Barton Rouge has opened in Liverpool’s iconic commercial district, in the elegant Exchange Flags. This location is sophisticated and you won’t look out of place wearing a cute cocktail dress and heels, clutch bag in hand as you jump off the train at Moorfields station and make your way across the road to Exchange Flags, less than a 2-minute walk. Liverpool’s commercial district has many smart cocktail bars and coffee shops dotted around which are ideal to check out after a meal at Barton Rouge in Liverpool.

Location: 26 Exchange Street East, Liverpool L2 3PH

Walking distance from Moorfields Station and Liverpool One.

Luxury Furnishings & Delicious Indian Food

Offering a fine dining experience, BartonRouge has opted for soft furnishings and a subdued colour scheme to give a calm and elegant ambience to the restaurant. Furnishings and colour schemes are so key to setting the right mood for a restaurant and attracting the right clientele to enjoy the owner’s vision, which according to their website is an intimate and relaxed dining experience that offers something different to local and foreign patrons and ensures you enjoy a memorable food experience every time.

New Age Indian Cuisine

Founder of Barton Rouge Amit Kumar has described the concept of their menu as new-age Indian cuisine at its finest and has high hopes for the new Liverpool restaurant. Mr Kumar is excited to be bringing the true taste of India to Liverpool, allowing guests to embark on a culinary journey to India.

Taking over from the former Anderson’s Bar on Exchange Street in Liverpool, Barton Rouge has expanded its Indian fine dining experience to the new city-centre location to bring a modern-day take on authentic Indian food to Liverpool. With sister restaurants in Chester and Heswall and a reputation to be proud of, the charcoal pit Indian restaurant will include a delicious array of authentic and traditional Indian food, inspired by Old Delhi style street food, ideal for city workers looking for a quick bite that guarantees to pack a punch of flavour with every mouthful.

With two floors, the new restaurant has a splash of warmth through elaborate wall art and decoration whilst maintaining to provide guests with an elegant true fine dining experience.

During the evenings, you can enjoy the true taste of India with chicken and lamb curries served with fresh Naan bread and dips with a signature cocktail menu to elevate your night at Barton Rouge.

If you’re pining for the nostalgic dishes from your childhood, with a modern and refreshing twist, we highly recommend visiting Barton Rouge in Liverpool.

Now, on to the much-anticipated food review.

We were welcomed with huge warmth from the team at Barton Rouge and shown to our table. As we were one of the first to be tasting their new dishes, there was a set menu in place. First came the Naan bread and yoghurt dips, a staple of any Indian restaurant, but they were very fresh and the accompanying dips were really delicious.

A Delicate Balance of Spice & Heat

Then out came a spicy and aromatic curry dish, with a side of piping hot sticky rice. The balance and blend of the spices made the dish come to life and we can assure you that nothing went to waste. The portion sizes are great and don’t leave you feeling too full after a starter and main course, but make sure to take your time and enjoy the beautiful surroundings over a glass of wine or two.
