Slated to open when ‘lockdown lifts’, the 4,700 sq ft site follows the success of Maggie Fu’s inaugural restaurant location on Smithdown Road.
Developer Grosvenor Europe says the opening will further diversify Hanover Street’s critical mass of international cuisine. Nearby operators include Wahaca, Turtle Bay, Bem Brasil and Catalonian independent Lunya.
Family-owned, Maggie Fu offers a range of Asian-inspired dishes including steamed buns, ramen, ‘big bowl’ stir-fry dishes and frozen yoghurt desserts.
“We have grown a very loyal following in the two years since we launched, giving us the confidence to open a flagship restaurant in a prime city centre location,” says Maggie Fu’s Lee Boon.
“Liverpool ONE’s Hanover Street is perfect. We have great neighbours and will benefit from high Liverpool ONE’s footfall, complemented by the residential and leisure offer in Rope Walks. We are ready to welcome existing and new customers later this year.”
“We are committed to maintaining a strong mix of local and regional independent operators alongside national brands at Liverpool ONE,” says Grosvenor Europe asset management director Alison Clegg. “As an already established operator from the city, Maggie Fu is a very welcome addition that will appeal to our broad cross-section of our visitors, from students to office workers to shoppers and tourists.”
