The Almond restaurant and bar in West Derby Village, Liverpool, has closed today for a week, after investing a five-figure sum to expand its existing site.
Once complete, the new space will have 70 covers across two floors on the 16 Mill Lane site, which has operated on the ground floor for the past six years. The renovation will see the venue close for one week from today (10 August).
The second floor will also act as an events space and private dining area when necessary, meaning that the business will now be able to cater for more corporate events, birthdays and baby showers. Expansion was said to be partly prompted by customer demand, and a desire to build on its industry experience since opening in 2009.
The restaurant serves food throughout the day, including a buffet option, with dishes based on ‘home-grown recipes' such as slow roast belly pork and lamb shank, blackened salmon, and Key lime cheesecake.
Almond managing director Kate Dunn said: "[With the expansion] we're hoping to uphold our prominent reputation and secure recognition as being as a major foodie venue in Liverpool. We've already had a lot of great feedback from both the local community in West Derby, as well as those further afield, and we like to go out of our way to accommodate our customers' suggestions."
