To kick start the Easter bank holiday in high spirits, Trattoria 51 is set to provide the perfect ‘Fish & Fizz’ combo during Good Friday (April 14).

The popular Old Hall Street restaurant and bar, which has become renowned for its ‘Seafood Specials’, will provide an unrivalled choice of fish dishes ideal for those opting to go meat-free.

In line with the merriments, each dish can be complemented by a varied range of fizz served at the venue’s very own 51 Prosecco Bar.

General Manager and Co-Owner of Trattoria 51 Toni Karemanaj said: “Good Friday is a time of celebration and what better way to do so than with great food, great drink and of course great company.

“In line with religious beliefs and widespread social etiquette, many people choose to forgo meat on Good Friday, which is why we want to provide our guests with ample alternatives. With seafood being at the forefront of our signature offerings here at Trattoria 51, it’s the perfect time for diners to explore new flavours or indulge in their all-time favourites.”

To begin their meal, diners can opt from an array of seafood starters including Calamari Fritti (Fried Calamari with Garlic Mayonnaise and Sweet Chilli Sauce), Cozze Marinara (Fresh Mussels with Wine, Garlic, Cherry Tomatoes and Parsley) and Gamberoni Piccanti (King Prawns, Chilli, Garlic, White Wine and Cherry Tomatoes served with Crusty Bread).

Mains include Linguine 51 (King Prawns, Cherry Tomatoes, White Wine, Garlic, Pine Nuts, Courgette and Chilli), Grilled Sea Bass Fillet with Vegetable Risotto, together with pizzas such as Pescatora (Prawns, Mussels, Tuna, Anchovies, Calamari, Cherry Tomatoes, Parsley and Lemon Zest) and Lionnese (Tuna, Olives and Red Onions). Daily specials include King Scallops Wrapped in Speck Ham served with Leek Puree, Caciucco Alla Livornese and Whole Dover Sole Mauniere.

Toni added: “To complement our seafood selection, our recently re-established 51 Prosecco Bar ensures that we can pair each of our dishes to perfection. What’s more, the downstairs bar, which now dominates the entrance of our downstairs floor space, provides an upbeat social drinking experience to further our stance as being an authentic Italian drinking and dining destination. With that in mind, we hope to provide the perfect place for Good Friday celebrations amongst friends, family and work colleagues.

“Whilst our Liverpool venue will be closed on Easter Sunday and Monday, our Southport-based sister restaurant will be serving up a selection of authentic Italian favourites, which will no doubt go down a treat after a family day out at the promenade.”

Good Friday Fish & Fizz is available at Trattoria 51 on Friday, April 14.

Trattoria 51, located on Old Hall Street, will be closed on Easter Sunday (April 16) and Easter Monday (April 17) while the Southport Promenade restaurant will remain open.
