Joe's Kitchen, York
Graham Clark, Features Writer
Try telling the thousands of European visitors to York that Brexit will make any difference to their travel plans come next March. When we visited Joe's Kitchen in the centre of York we were in the company of Spanish, Dutch and from outside Europe, American diners.
The restaurant feels individual, in fact my partner did not know that it was part of a small chain. There are enough corners and areas to the welcoming restaurant that it feels like you have the place all to yourself. You could dress up for your visit or just arrive casual as most people do. There is even a small terrace outside which gets the sun from mid day onwards.
Feel good Food Day and Night is the promise with the menu ranging from standards like Sausage and Mash, Fish and Chips and Ham and Eggs. They do steaks too along with a range of burgers.
Interesting to see too that any bottle of wine on the drinks menu does not cost more than £20.00
For starters we shared Joe's Chicken Goujons which were meaty and served with homemade slaw which tasted indeed just like it had been homemade.
I decided upon the Double Gourmet Burger priced at £14.95. It was a beefy feast but best of all it came with chunky chips, none of this skinny fries business here. Tantalisingly tasty and a wholesome burger.
My partner said that her 8oz Sirloin Hereford Steak was cooked to perfection.
We decided to share a Black Cherry Eton Mess - chunks of meringue layered with black cherry compote, topped with mixed berries and whipped cream. It sounds like a belt buster with more calories than you could care to imagine, but it was worth it!
The restaurant does have a nice ambience, the staff were friendly and the food we ate would make us pay a return visit.
