The chef, who won the BBC cooking show in 2012, has secured a city centre site and is aiming to raise £60,000 on Kickstarter to furnish the restaurant and put in a downstairs private dining room.
Piotrowski wrote on the crowdfunding page: “I want to make Liverpool the food capital of the north and put it on the culinary map. The long term goal is to have the only 2 Michelin star restaurant in Liverpool.”
Röski will offer two weekly-changing tasting menus with dishes likely to include pheasant braised in black bean sauce with a bao bun, chilli jam, and a fried quail egg; and baked sea bream, smoked butter mushroom puree and a parma ham crumble.
The chef told BigHospitality he is planning to take reservations using a pre-pay ticketing system to tackle the issue of ‘no-shows’. Diners will pay for their meal beforehand before covering the costs of drinks on the night.
If the crowdfunding is successful he hopes to open the restaurant in mid-November.
Piotrowski previously won a Michelin star at The Treby Arms in Sparkwell and helped launch Brown & Bean in Plymouth earlier this year before parting company with the owners to pursue his own restaurant.
The chef has until 12 October to hit his £60,000 target. To view the crowdfunding page click here.
