American-Italian restaurant, Smoke & Dough, is celebrating the launch of its debut UK location at Liverpool One, part of the private international property company, Grosvenor Group. The new 7,000 sq ft site is situated on The Terrace, joining the destination’s diverse restaurant line-up.
Founded by chef Deepak Bahuguna and Sachin Bajpai, the interactive BBQ concept offers customers fine meats which are grilled to customer preference on lava coal pits situated at each table, before being served directly to their plate. The fixed menu features steaks, pork, lamb chops, smoked chicken, chicken wings, flat breads and specialty sourdough pizzas, and a range of vegetarian options.
Overlooking Chavasse Park, the venue has been designed by EIS Interiors with an exclusive outdoor seating area, and serves up to 150 covers with a late-night bar of 50 covers.
Chef Deepak Bahuguna of Smoke & Dough commented: “We’re thoroughly excited to have opened our first location in the thriving Liverpool ONE, especially as part of the established dining hub of The Terrace. This is an exciting new endeavour for us as we introduce our menu and concept to the UK market, and we are pleased to have the Liverpool ONE’s momentum propelling us.”
Alison Clegg, Director, Asset Management, Grosvenor Europe, added: “We are always on the lookout for innovative and unique dining venues to introduce to our visitors. Smoke & Dough is a great new concept to debut at Liverpool ONE, adding to our global restaurant line-up, while perfectly complementing the retail and competitive leisure offering too.”
The opening coincides with the launch of cult-favourite My Cookie Dough at Wall Street in Liverpool ONE. Specialising in freshly-baked cookie dough creations and Instagram-famous stacks, the new store will serve as the brand’s UK flagship site.
Smoke & Dough is the latest in a long list of distinctive dining and bar concepts to launch at Liverpool ONE, including Aether by The Alchemist, The Club House by New World Trading Company, the UK debut of Thaikhun’s bar concept, and Lunya, the UK’s leading Catalan bar, restaurant and deli.
