Manahatta Newcastle

Manahatta

9-17 Collingwood Street, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 1HE

If you haven’t had a chance to check out one of the newest – and arguably most glamourous – bars in Newcastle, then Newcastle Restaurant Week 2024 could provide ample opportunity.

The New York-inspired Manahatta may be making waves as a cocktail bar, but it’s their food menu that really lets you take a bite out of the Big Apple.

Newcastle Restaurant Week deal: 2 courses for £15; 3 courses for £20

Pitcher & Piano Newcastle

Pitcher & Piano

108 The Quayside, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 3DX

We don’t visit the Pitcher & Piano enough. A sophisticated yet relaxed venue for any occasion, we’re as comfortable having bubbles over brunch here as we are relaxed after-work small plates.

But it’s also somewhere we can dress ourselves up and enjoy a romantic date night, as we take in the unbeatable views of Newcastle’s Quayside under the stars.

Newcastle Restaurant Week deal: 2 courses for £15; 3 courses for £20

It’s not just its unmistakable Alfred Hitchcock-meets-Vivienne Westwood décor that makes The Earl of Pitt Street stand out from the crowd.

The ‘electric East’ inspired menu offers exotic flavour combos you won’t find anywhere else – like slow-cooked char sui pork belly, halloumi and cashew nut curry, and Rajasthan royal biryani.

Newcastle Restaurant Week deal: 2 courses for £20; 3 courses for £25

I Scream for Pizza Newcastle

I Scream for Pizza

Three Indian Kings House, 31 Quayside, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 3DE

It’s 7 years since we first came to the pearly pepperoni gates of Scream for Pizza, but we still feel like we’ve died and gone to pizza heaven every time we take a bite.

Influenced by ancient Neapolitan traditions, while adding playful twists with surprising topping combos and locally sourced ingredients, this really is pizza worth screaming about.

Newcastle Restaurant Week deal: 1x 14” pizza/dip/Screamie for £15; 2 x 14” pizzas/2 dips for £20; 20” pizza/garlic bread and 4 cans of pop for £25

Thali Tray @ Bealim House

Thali Tray @ Bealim House

17-25 Gallowgate, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 4SG

We’ve been huge fans of Thali Tray ever since they set up shop under Byker Bridge, but now their city-centre venue adds elegant, gastro-pub vibes to this street food-inspired Indian dining experience.

For Newcastle Restaurant Week 2024, expect favourites like kadhi pakora, masala fries and broken corn bhajiyas – all served on their famous, two-curry Thali trays.

Newcastle Restaurant Week deal: 2 brunch dishes for £15; a Taster, Thali and Treat for £20

Côte Brasserie

This may well be the deal of Newcastle Restaurant Week 2024 for us.

Visiting the home of French cuisine in Newcastle always opens us up to a sophisticated evening of wining and dining with friends. But throw in four courses and a wine, beer or a soft drink for £25 and you’ve got yourself a winner.

Newcastle Restaurant Week deal: breakfast bubbles for £15; 4 courses and a drink for £25

A new entrant for Newcastle Restaurant Week 2024, Louie’s is the latest bourbon and whisky joint to set up shop in the Toon – and what an addition it’s been.

But this week we’re talking about its culinary offering, which includes mouth-watering fried chicken from FED’s, southern-style fries and tater tots, all smothered with homemade sauces.
