If you like: French food and quirky restaurants
Then try: The French Quarter, Newcastle
Nestling under the old railway arches, the French Quarter invites you to share their love of all things French. Traditional French dishes are transformed into cool tapas-style plates, allowing you to have our favourite boeuf bourguignon and finally try escargots. Owned by Frenchman Cedric and Northumberland-born Catherine, it’s the perfect infusion of France and the North East.
If you like: Spanish-style gourmet tapas
Then try: Ambiente, York and Leeds
Tapas is ideal for those who like variety — why eat just one thing when you can try three? All the fresh food is locally sourced, except the authentic Spanish ingredients sourced directly from high quality producers in Spain. Everything on the menu sounds delicious, from the caramelised chorizo to hearty vegetarian specials. Authentic Spanish cuisine with local Yorkshire produce — the best of both worlds.
If you like: Authentic Italian
Then try: Vero Gusto, Sheffield
Regular recipients of five-star reviews and Best Restaurant awards, Vero Gusto’s reputation for authentic Italian cuisine is unparalleled. Swap pizza for a delicious risotto, or indulge in pan-fried duck breast with wild mushrooms, shallots, baby watercress and mixed berries.
