The new restaurant will serve as Maggie Fu’s flagship restaurant, and will launch once the lockdown lifts.
Maggie Fu will provide a range of Asian-inspired dishes, including steamed buns and ramen, ‘big bowl’ stir fry dishes, and frozen yoghurt desserts. Set across two floors, the restaurant will contain 120 covers when trading at full capacity.
Lee Boon, a spokesperson for Maggie Fu, said: “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. Liverpool One’s Hanover Street is perfect.
“We have great neighbours and will benefit from 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.”
Alison Clegg, director of asset management at Grosvenor Europe, added: “We are committed to maintaining a strong mix of local and regional independent operators alongside national brands at Liverpool One.
“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.”
She added: “The signing of Maggie Fu also highlights that, despite the challenging circumstances for the industry, Grosvenor Europe is supportive of operators, working with them to help create opportunities for growth as they move towards recovery.”
