Popular restaurant expands its reach to casual food concept

Sabich rotisserie

The team behind a popular Liverpool restaurant is opening a casual food concept in city’s Duke Street Food and Drink Market, when it is able to reopen on May 17.

Sabich has been created by the team behind small plates restaurant chain Maray and will offer sandwiches, rotisserie chicken and delicious sides, all of which have been inspired by Middle Eastern flavours and dishes.

Named after the concept’s signature sandwich, Sabich is a mouthwatering combination of aubergine, eggs, tahini, and amba, served in a soft, pillowy pitta.

A welcome addition to the market, Duke Street said it is incredibly excited for Sabich to open and for guests to try its variety of delicious dishes.

The new concept adds to the variety of kitchens that the market is home to, which includes Cuban-inspired Cahita, Italian Cucina Di Vincenzo, seafood specialist Kelp, Asian-inspired Ginger and steakhouse kitchen Bone and Block.

Lee Bannon-Smith, general manager of Duke Street Food and Drink Market, said: “We’re really excited to have a new kitchen on board from the team behind the much-loved Maray restaurants.

“Sabich is completely different to any of the other food vendors at the market and we pride ourselves on providing a really varied offering and Sabich further adds to that. The food is delicious and we believe our guests will love Sabich as much as myself and the market team do.”

Thomas White, co-founder of Sabich, said: “Having been patrons of Duke Street Market for a long time, we are extremely excited to join their already stellar roster of operators.

“The Sabich concept is something we have wanted to explore for a while now and the market is the perfect environment to launch the brand. Fans of Maray will undoubtedly love what we are going to do here, but it’s a wholly different offering and experience which we cannot wait to share.”
