A Newcastle restaurant launches its new programme of monthly showcases with an indulgent six-course tasting menu next month.
artisan, located in The Biscuit Factory – the UK’s largest arts, craft and design gallery – hosts its Decadent Dinner Seasonal Showcase on Wednesday, 3 February 2016; perfectly timed for diners seeking an early Valentine’s meal.
The menu – crafted by the restaurant’s award-winning Head Chef, Andrew Wilkinson – features a selection of this region’s finest ingredients and exquisite flavour combinations.
Some of the dishes on the menu include: Ballotine Foie Gras with Rhubarb and Brioche; Carpaccio of Scallops and Sea Bream with Blood Orange and Fennel; and Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt Caramel and Pecan Brittle Ice Cream.
The à la carte restaurant, which is listed in this year’s Good Food Guide and boasts a 25-foot glass wall showcasing contemporary sculpture on display in the adjoining gallery, hosts its Seasonal Showcase event the first Wednesday of every month.
The showcases feature a six or seven-course tasting menu and celebrate an ingredient, a type of cooking or time of year. In the coming months, diners can expect menus inspired by British woodlands, the sea, new season shoots and an allotment harvest.
The Decadent Dinner Seasonal Showcase is priced at £49.50 per person, with an optional flight of wine at £25 per person. Places must be booked in advance.
