Fodor's Review

One of York's best restaurants is in a building that once served as a brothel, a past reflected in its murals featuring undraped women. Downstairs are four intimate walled booths, and at street level is a lively candlelit room. The menu changes with the seasons and concentrates on local seafood. Typical dishes include pan-seared scallops, roast local cod with crayfish tails, and grilled Yorkshire sirloin steak with spring onion mash. The wine list is impressive, and the service can't be friendlier. The restaurant has six self-contained apartments—called the Blue Rooms—in a courtyard to the rear.
