Sunderland's first fine dining tasting menu unveiled at Undisclosed - here's what you get for £75
Sunderland’s first fine dining restaurant has unveiled an eight-course tasting menu, to showcase the very best in seasonal products.
Undisclosed was opened in the former D’Acqua restaurant site in John Street last month by experienced chef, Chris Spence, who has returned to his native North East after a career which has taken him across the globe.
Chris has worked in top restaurants in America, Australia, Hungary, France and in the UK and has used his skills and knowledge to create a seasonal tasting menu which offers a twist on classic flavours, along with some unique ingredient pairings.
The tasting menu costs £75 per person, with the wine pairing an additional £55. The restaurant also offers a vegetarian version which is £65 per person.
The restaurant also offers an a la carte menu but those who opt for the tasting menu can enjoy:
::Course 1 – an amuse bouche of celeriac velouté and wild mushrooms;
::Course 2 – a beetroot and apple terrine served with picked apple, candied beets and an apple gel;
::Course 3 – Wood pigeon complemented by dark chocolate and pickled raspberries;
::Course 4 – turbot with horseradish, bone marrow, parsley, caviar and baby leeks;
::Course 5 – a surprise molecular gastronomy sphere;
::Course 6 – a panna cotta and white chocolate mousse;
::Course 7 – a rhubarb and ginger tart comprising compressed rhubarb, ginger cheesecake and a rhubarb gel;
::Course 8 – a selection of homemade petit fours.
Speaking about the menu, Chris, who previously ran an at-home fine dining service, Emily’s Table, said: “I’ve used some of my favourite ingredients to create a menu which brings together a number of very different but equally amazing flavours.
“It’s given me a real opportunity to show what I like to do best and we’re looking forward to even more people coming along to enjoy it.”
Undisclosed also has a special lunchtime menu and specialises in unique cocktails. There’s also an extensive hand picked wine list.
