David Kennedys Food Social

The Biscuit Factory, Stoddart Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, NE2 1AN
This excellent brasserie is set on the ground floor of what was once a biscuit factory. Until 2011 it was styled as The Brasserie Black Door, but a change in the owning partnership has brought a change of name.

On the food front, using the freshest of local ingredients is the aim, and while the name and style denote brasserie - the cooking is ambitious.

Starters such as 'Leek and Potato Soup with Poached Haddock and Saffron Oil'; 'Duck Rillette, Red Onion Jam, Croutons & Pickles'; 'Salt and Pepper Squid with Chorizo, Citrus Confit and Mizzuna' and 'Mussel and Smoked Bacon Risotto with Parsley and Spring Onions' set the style.

Perhaps to be followed by 'Slow-Cooked Shoulder of Lamb with Fine Beans and Tomato Confit'; 'Fillet of Black Bream, Sautéed Potatoes, Chorizo and Curry Vinaigrette' or 'Herb-Roasted Chicken with Girolles, Fondant Potato and Braised Beans'.

If you have room, you might be tempted by 'Mandarin Tart with Pastry Cream and Mandarin Compote'; 'Sticky Toffee Pudding'; 'Chocolate Dentelles with Peanut Butter Fudge and Citrus Jelly or their selection of local artisan cheeses.

You might even leave with a picture, if you're not careful!
