Bruntwood Works celebrates major milestone at The Plaza with the arrival of NORD restaurant
By Bruntwood Works
The Plaza, Bruntwood Works’ landmark building in Liverpool, has welcomed brand new luxury dining space, NORD. Located on the ground floor, the restaurant is jointly operated by GSG Hospitality and acclaimed chef Daniel Heffy.
The restaurant offers relaxed dining with a focus on ingredients from regional producers and a menu that celebrates Northern heritage. Influenced by Chef Daniel Heffy’s time in Scandinavia, the NORD menu highlights locally sourced ingredients prepared in a contemporary style. A native of Liverpool, Daniel’s career has spanned the city including founding cult supper club, Secret Diners Club, before being appointed Head Chef at local favourite, Buyers Club. He was also a driving force behind the successful street food concept CAHITA.
Sitting right at the heart of the building, NORD mirrors the design of The Plaza creating a bold and beautiful new 96 cover dining concept for Liverpool with a mix of booth and table seating. It also includes a centerpiece bar surrounded by luxurious banquette seating for 41, perfect for lunch dates, after work drinks and weekend get-togethers. Alongside artisan coffee shop, Bold Street Coffee, also located on the ground floor, an extraordinary new arrival experience has been created at this iconic building, which seamlessly blends work and lifestyle.
The entire interior concept is designed to reflect the building's roots in the 1960s and all the optimism and colour that decade brought to the liveliest of cities. The team’s vision was to create a look and feel that is relevant to today rather than purely retrospective so the brave and bold elements of the era inspire the design which is future-facing and designed to connect with people across the city.
Ciara Keeling, CEO of Bruntwood Works, said: “The arrival of NORD adds a fantastic new dimension to The Plaza. We are delighted that GSG and Daniel have created such a beautiful dining experience with a menu that has quality northern ingredients at its heart. It adds another layer to the building as well as a stunning new destination for the city. The opening of NORD signifies the ambition of the hospitality offering here at The Plaza and adds the finishing touches to our aim of merging work and lifestyle in this stunning building.”
Matt Farrell, Co-Founder and Executive Director of GSG.Hospitality, comments: "NORD's opening is set to bring something really different to the city of Liverpool. The space will offer an incredible dining experience and its location at the ground floor of The Plaza has attracted an amazing response and plenty of excitement around what we've been working on. We're really looking forward to opening our doors and sharing our menu, which will highlight all that the North's incredible food scene has to offer and be dedicated to showcasing regional producers.”
