[Lancashire, Liverpool] Place to take diabetic/low cholesterol/non meat-eating parents that's still good
So I'm visiting the UK (Liverpool area, also going near southport/martin mere) where my parents are based and would like to take them out for friday lunch. Unfortunately they are somewhat limited due to health concerns:
i) No meat
ii) No heavily cholesterol/fatty things/fried
iii) Nothing too sugary/alcoholy
iv) Nothing too dairy-based, no acidic fruits
iii) basically...... Nothing too adventurous
(....oy! as they say!).
Ideal dishes: simple grilled fish, vegetables, nuts, pulses, soups, tvp/tofu, simple salads, potatoes, breads
However, I would like it to be special ......
A tough call: Any suggestions for the Liverpool or Southport areas?
the "nothing too adventurous" might void this suggestion but would they eat asian food?
host on hope street was really lovely when i went there and has things liked "steamed sea bass with yellow beans and greens" as well as various veggie options. the setting is causual and relaxed but if its different from what they'd usually do the novelty factor might add to the special feel. it's also in a nice area to walk around after.
I don't know if this is too late, but what about trying the Italian Club Fish on Bold St in Liverpool - not special as in "posh", but it has a great atmosphere and it feels a bit like a cafe in Milan.
There are several higher end places you could try, where they will usually have one or more vegiie dishes on the menu and also fish - you can check their menus on line and maybe call ahead to check what changes they can make if needs be. Try 60 Hope St, Puschka, Ziba, The Side Door, London Carriage Works (has had some mixed reviews lately) - all are special in their own way,
