What To Expect From Sunderland’s Undisclosed
We dubbed Sunderland’s new fine-dining restaurant, Undisclosed, the perfect date-night eatery, when we attended their launch night
Undisclosed brings a new and exciting dining experience to the region through molecular gastronomy and cocktails. The restaurant is a first for Sunderland’s fine-dining scene, from the food brought to you by chefs who have worked alongside some of the industry's best, to the drinks selectively chosen to complement the speakeasy-inspired interior.
The newly-refurbished restaurant is owned by head chef Christopher Spence. He was inspired by the hidden bars he visited during his time in Australia and wanted to bring the speakeasy influence to Undisclosed, which is why there will be little outside branding to maintain the restaurant’s exclusive feel.
Located in a basement, the restaurant features a gastronomy menu and molecular cocktails – which we got to try on launch night. We were treated to a champagne reception, canapé versions of the food that the restaurant will be serving, along with relaxing entertainment courtesy of the Kirsty Foster Duo.
We recommend Beetroot & Apple (pickled apples, candied beets and apple gel) to begin before moving on to the short rib with truffle mash and burnt onion, but the desserts were by far our highlight – and we particularly loved the compressed rhubarb and ginger cheesecake with rhubarb gel. There’s plenty more on the recently-announced tasting menu (£75 for seven courses), which you can browse online, and we’re also looking forward to trying their take on a traditional afternoon tea.
