Fodor's Expert Review Peace & Loaf
$$$ Newcastle upon Tyne British
Aside from the labored pun-of-a-name, this fine restaurant, in the upscale suburb of Jesmond, hits all the right notes, with chef Dave Coulson serving up delicious, flavor-packed, and beautifully presented dishes. The interior is colorful and airy, and the waitstaff is friendly and attentive, though a little over-eager; you might struggle to catch your breath between servings of bread, drinks, endless amuse-bouches, and regular courses. Try the sumptuously spicy tandoori monkfish, served with chickpeas, yogurt, and coriander; it comes with a bonus monkfish skewer on the side.
