Good Food Guide praises Michelin starred Fraiche once again!

17th August 2012

Categories: News

The best-selling guide has praised the standard of dining in the region and again listed Oxton restaurant Fraiche among the top 50 places to eat in the country.

The book, which will be published next month, lists Marc Wilkinson’s Michelin starred restaurant as number 25 in its top 50.

In the all-important cooking score – which rates the standard of a restaurant out of 10 – Fraiche achieved a seven. That denotes: “A high level of ambition and individuality, attention to the smallest detail, accurate and vibrant dishes.”

Chef patron Marc said: “Fraiche may well be the highest rated single handed kitchen in the UK.

“As for the rating, I’m very proud to not only be in the top 50 in the UK but also to promote modern food in Merseyside. There now comes the point where, if I want to push into the top 20, I will need staff and it’s something I’m looking at now.

“It’s amazing what I have achieved on my own in the kitchen, front of house is also going from strength to strength with James Campbell and the guys.”

It’s been an impressive year for Marc’s five-table Oxton restaurant, after it retained its Michelin star for a fourth year. It was also named in the top 50 in the Sunday Times’ top restaurants and won the BBC Olive magazine’s Alternative Restaurant Awards.

The rest of the listed restaurants will be announced next month, but special mention has gone to Liverpool city centre restaurants Hanover Street Social and Salt House Tapas, which will be listed for the first time.

Director Jonathan Poole said: “Both have had huge emphasis placed on the sourcing and preparation of dishes, too, and equally, on personal service for the customer and it’s paid off.

“Based upon our travels and experience of customer demands at the high end, a key focus has been hospitality.

“Our aim from day one was to change the way customers think of their relationship with a restaurant.”

Elizabeth Carter, Consultant Editor of The Good Food Guide, said: “It is fantastic to see that there are really strong dining options to be enjoyed across the region, with a mix of new entries sitting alongside first-rate fine dining establishments and perennial favourites.”
