Gary Usher's fifth restaurant, Pinion, is set to open in Prescot on 28 September following a record-breaking crowdfunding campaign which raised £50,000 in less than an hour.
The campaign ended having raised £86,624 pledged by 1,193 backers in June.
Open Wednesday to Sunday, the bistro will serve a lunch and early evening menu, as well as an à la carte menu from 6pm and a Sunday lunch menu. The menus include dishes such as: chicken liver pâté; battered haddock and chips; whole Camembert; braised feather blade of beef; sea bream fillet; butternut squash and mozzarella arancini; dark chocolate mousse with crushed honeycomb; and steamed lemon suet sponge.
Usher said: "It has been a long time coming but we're finally ready to open Pinion. I'm so excited to be bringing this little bistro to Prescot because the people we've met along the way have been incredible and their support unbelievable. There's something exciting happening in Prescot at the minute and we're just really enjoying being a part of it."
Usher has also teased plans for a boutique hotel which could open in Manchester next year, and his sixth restaurant Kala in Manchester is due to open later this year.
