With that being said, it would be rude not to give one of those fresh pasta dishes a try. So why not see just how well it scores in a well-loved cannelloni dish, or even push the boat out a little further and what is arguably their most popular dish, misto di pesce, king prawns, queen scallops, mussels, tiger prawns, calamari, and langoustine cooked in white wine, garlic, and tomato and served on a bed of fresh spaghetti… we’re salivating.
Arriving just one year after Little Italy, Café Concerto was established on the busy street of High Petergate in 1993 by husband and wife team Ian & Rozz Hancox. Both Ian and Rozz have a career history working in some of the country’s most highly-regarded restaurants, which is where the pair came to meet in 1990, and three years was all it took before they combined their passion for dining and music and opened Café Concerto. Ian and Rozz’s menu is an ode to their passion for quality local produce and here you won’t struggle to find the classic dishes like welsh rarebit or avocado on toast which we’re often hankering for come lunch time.
Next up is Korean Bistro and BBQ, Oshibi, which opened over 14 years ago by husband and wife team Ross and Seongho, and can be found tucked away into the oh-so-charming Franklin’s Yard. It’s this pair’s genuine passion for the Korean cuisine that makes this place such a pleasure to visit; whether you prefer a more conventional sequence of courses, or you’re willing to jump in blind, Ross and Seongho stress that all offerings on the menu can be adapted for you to enjoy your Korean dining experience as much as this pair enjoy creating it!
Opting for the Korean BBQ menu will allow you to grill your own choice of meats, seafood, and vegetables. But if you’re prone to stage fright then fear not, you can order from the standard menu and try a serving of their signature rice dish, Bibimbap – one of the most popular Korean rice dishes served with a variety of vegetables, your choice of meat, mixed together with red chilli sauce.
