A worthy successor to Caffè Vivo?
21 Hospitality Group is one of the cities largest and most revered restaurant groups. Owned by local food hero Terry Laybourne, the group comprises of the flagship restaurant 21, and gastropub The Broad Chare. Italian bistro Caffe Vivo closed in late 2018 to be replaced by wine-bar-café St. Vincent, and within Fenwick Newcastle is Cafe 21 at Fenwick, as well as the two stunning butcher/fishmonger units in the food hall that are Saltwater Fish Company and Porterhouse. The group also had a stake in Jesmond Dene House in its early days, as well as the now closed Ko Sai (now Porterhouse), and Bistro 21 in Durham.
Some things never change…
Calling for every great restaurant to have a monthly BYO please…?
Best Italian restaurant in Newcastle.
It’s one of the best pubs in Newcastle, doing one of the best Sunday lunches…you know the drill.
A Newcastle institution since 1882 just got a whole better.
If you’ve been following this blog for any period of time now, you probably know what this is going to say, so maybe just look at the pretty pictures then have another trip down to the Quayside and enjoy the food, because Café 21 is still easily one of the best places to eat in Newcastle.
As we’ve said before, everything Terry Laybourne touches seems to turn to gold, and before even clicking on this, you’ve probably already guessed that afternoon tea at Cafè 21 in Fenwicks is nigh on perfect.
The Broad Chare was a late addition to a restaurant week – and one that couldn’t be passed up.
Truly great pub food.
