Come inside your brand new look La Tasca in Queen Square
6 years ago
We have all been here at some point over the years and if you haven’t then now is the time. La Tasca in Queen Square was one of the first ever restaurants in the chain to come to open in the UK. It has recently undergone a huge transformation and refurbishment and is looking mighty fine. Of course we had to go inside for a nosey for you to see what has changed and what you can expect from one of the city’s sunniest and most popular restaurants.
The new look celebrates all the vibrancy and energy of modern Spain. Set in Queens Square, this Spanish revolution is set to wow!
Over £440,000 has been invested in reviving the well known restaurant. Expect plush leather banquette seating, colorful red and yellow chairs, and pendant lighting throughout. A new bespoke bar, with a copper top, vintage timber exterior and decorative Spanish tiling has been installed. Timber floors have been stripped back to create a lighter, contemporary look, whilst bold, artwork depicting Spanish artist Salvador Dali adorns the walls.
The open kitchen, the focal point for the 155 cover restaurant now has a dedicated Paella Station. The famous range of La Tasca Paella’s are freshly cooked, using traditional methods and come served in a traditional paella pan with a ‘socarette’ – a lightly charred base.
On the new food menu there is a real influence on freshness and authenticity, with the dishes prepared daily using premium ingredients sourced from local suppliers, using traditional Spanish methods. There is also influence from the team at La Tasca’s time spent in Spain researching new food trends. Delicious new dishes include Red Mullet skewers, (coated in almonds, honey and smoked tomatoes). Hake, served with broad beans and the finest jamón serrano in a stew. The signature dish from the new range is the Buey A La Tasca, a mouth watering 4oz chargrilled 21-day aged Scottish steak, served with blue cheese gratin and cherry tomato confit.
A range of Spanish beers, wines and sherries feature on the drinks list, alongside a selection of classic and fruit Sangrias (served by glass of jug). The delightfully fruity range includes strawberry, mango & passion fruit and peach punch, ideal for enjoying on the 68 cover terrace in the summer months!
Andy Smithard, Head of La Tasca Sales & Marketing said of the refurbishment, “Liverpool is a key site for us, and the investment in the refurbishment reflects this. The restaurant really has the wow factor, and the new designs reflect the energy of a modern Spanish restaurant. The new menu is our best yet, and signal a move forward for us. We look forward to welcoming guests old and new to join in our Spanish revolution.”
