Which restaurant is the top spot in Liverpool for an epicurean adventure? For Sherlock Holmes stars Robert Downey Jr., who will portray the legendary detective in the upcoming Guy Ritchie-directed flick, and Jude Law, who has stepped into the shoes of the sleuth’s sidekick Dr. Watson, the answer is elementary– 60 Hope Street. A venue recognized for its seafood selection, the A-listers, along with a coterie of cast and crew members, mulled over a menu featuring fish and chips in Cain’s beer batter and pan-fried fillet of sea bass with clam chowder before enjoying their choice of gastronomic treat at the Georgian-style dining establishment, the Liverpool Echo reported
Although Liverpool is best known as the birthplace of The Beatles, it was Gerry and the Pacemakers’ tune “Ferry Cross the Mersey” which brought pop culture prominence to the River Mersey, the body of water which once welcomed a steady flow of steamers pulling away from Clarence Dock, where cameras rolled on the upcoming feature film in mid-November. No longer in use, the site received a time-altering transformation back to its heyday as the cast and crew arrived in their Victorian vestments.
