In its list of best towns for foodies, the new 2019 Harden’s food guide names York as ‘the new foodie hot spot’ Editor Peter Harden says:
“During Harden’s 28 years of reviewing, York has hitherto been one of those charming British cities with inspiring medieval architecture, but, by contrast, a middle-of-the-road selection of pubs, tea-shops and bistros. But in the last year or two, the city has shot to prominence as a foodie-magnet, with an assortment of Shoreditch-worthy arrivals in recent times such as Arras, Le Cochon Aveugle, Skosh and the yet-to-be-rated Roots.”
Hah good to know we’re ‘Shoreditch-worthy’, though we’ve known York as an excellent food city for a long time. We’d add to that list Partisan, Rattle Owl and my most recent discovery, the Bow Room at Gray’s Court (review to follow) and for daytime eating there are countless places to choose but a special mention for Mannion & Co, Robinson’s and Brew and Brownie.
