Grafitti Spirits Group, the Liverpool operator, has closed its Slims Pork Chop Express site in Seal Street.

The Matt Farell-led group said it has some “exciting plans for the building” while the Slims concept is expected to appear elsewhere.

The news comes after Graffiti revealed its plans for its Duke Street Food and Drink Market, which launches in April.

The 500-capacity venue will include a 60-cover showpiece restaurant, six kitchens, a sushi bar and a variety of speciality drinks from independent Liverpool operators.

Cinder, headed up by the founders of Belzan, will cook sharing dishes over wood fire.

Finca, winner of last year’s Million Pound Menu, will serve Cuban street food.

Cucina di Vincenzo, a family operated Italian restaurant based on Woolton Road, will serve pasta and pinsa dishes.

Duke Street Market will also house a specialist classic cocktail bar.
