Nama now open in Liverpool

Nama, the latest venture from Sheffield-based husband-and-wife duo chef Luke French and business director Stacey Sherwood-French, is now open in Liverpool.

Located in the new GPO Food Hall, Nama is a contemporary Izakaya-inspired dining and drinking concept, offering a menu of dishes in a more casual setting than the pair's flagship restaurant, JÖRO, in Sheffield.  

Nama (meaning raw in Japanese) uses only premium quality, sashimi-grade fish as well as responsibly sourced ingredients from the UK, EU and Japan.

Working together with French's trusted suppliers across the globe, Nama offers Japanese-inspired small plates from the land and ocean.   

‘I’m so excited we’ve been able to open our next venture Nama in Liverpool," says French. "It’s got such a rich culinary legacy and it’s amazing that we’re now a part of that. Launching within Liverpool’s biggest food hall, GPO, means that we can reach an entirely new audience, and one that will hopefully keep coming back for more."

The changing menu includes a variety of sashimi and nigiri such as Cornish stone bass sashimi with truffle, lemongrass and yuzu ponzo, English wasabi and nori; and sweet Sicilian red shrimp sashimi with lime and ginger ponzu, jalapeño chilli, makrut lime oil.

Tartares featuring Japanese Yellowfin tuna lightly cured in koji-soy sauce, Koshihikari rice, trout roe, egg yolk, English wasabi, chives and furikake; and accompanying dishes such as unrolled spicy Yellowfin tuna with nori, Koshihikari rice, Japanese mayo, roasted golden sesame, negi onion and Bird Eye togarashi.
