Cote Brasserie Newcastle: The perfect place to dine this Christmas

I’m not a fussy eater but I am quite fussy on standards in restaurants. I don’t mean to sound pompous by saying that but if I’m paying for food I want it to be worth it, I also think customer service is rated 50:50 to the food. Last month I was lucky enough to be invited to Cote Brasserie for their opening press night. Normally these nights are pretty near to average, but with Cote it was a completely different evening. We were spoilt!! From the moment we entered the restaurant the waitresses were straight with us and get our drinks topped up, it was also nice to hear their recommendations. 

We started the evening with a couple of glasses of fizz learning about the launch of the restaurant and what they wanted to offer the city. Cote is going to be the perfect place for formal dinners, pre theatre meal or just catch up friends, I can honestly picture it being the perfect for every occasion. We were then presented with an array of starters, normally I’m not a fan of nibbles because I don’t think you get much of an opinion of the food, however there were so many of these you could try a couple of each. And there were lots of different options to choose from including the charcuterie board, crab mayonnaise, chicken liver pate and a goats cheese and onion flatbread. I thoroughly enjoyed the charcuterie board and the crab mayonnaise. 

For our mains we were able to choose whatever we would like from the menu, when I get this kind of offer I always go for a steak. Not because I’m greedy! But because it’s one of those dishes that I think really help you judge a restaurant because you can compare it to other places. It’s also a dish that can be so good or can end up so wrong. 
I went for the 30 day aged sirloin steak with peppercorn sauce, and it was cooked to perfection. Served with frites. Definitely one of the nicer steaks I’ve had. My sister went for the belly pork which was served alongside gratin potatoes, it didn’t last long so I’m guessing it went down well. No she did say it was very nice. 

I was quite happy with my main and felt very satisfied, and then I was tempted by the dessert menu. I normally have more of a savoury tooth than a sweet one but that evening I was really tempted by the warm chocolate fondant with ice cream. So glad I ordered this because it was beautiful, not at all stodgy but super chocolatey!! My fav kind of pudding.

The whole evening was amazing! I really did enjoy myself. And we have already booked another table for next week. I would definitely recommend you give it a try next time your in Newcastle.
