Bistro Fourty6, Jesmond
High expectations after reading many of the mainly ‘excellent & good’ TA reports, but was perhaps a bit underwhelmed . I was hoping it would have been a bit more plush & up-market. Simply furnished with mainly plain décor, wooden topped table and modern, high backed chairs. About 17 people dined whilst we were there - an early Friday evening. The place is fairly small, but with huge mirrors, it looks much bigger. Seating for approx. 25.
Plus points - excellent food, well presented with pleasant service. Good menu with several seafood choices. Some lovely ‘specials’. Menu varied daily. The wine offered as part of the ‘Living Social’ deal was very pleasant, both red & white. (and ‘yes’, I did have red wine with the prawns, white with the Sea Bass - see photo’s)
Minus points - Parking can be tricky due to the ‘residents permit / ticket’ system. Just 50p per hour until 6.30pm. 1/3 of the lamps were ‘out’ in the chandeliers. Flimsy paper serviettes. Toilets are in the basement, about 12 steps.
