Union Street Cafè
November 7, 2013
This Italian restaurant, which calls itself a café, is much more the former. It’s menu, environment and service offer the fundamental qualities you would expect of a Ramsay restaurant but in a much cooler, accessible way. It plays to opposites all the time; the smooth with a bit of roughing up. The space itself is rough with plaster holes, industrial lighting and rough paint jobs but it’s offset with luxury padded leather chairs and quality glassware. The menu is ‘handwritten’ and yet the open kitchen allows anyone to inspect the quality ingredients they insist on seasonally sourcing. With the average main around £15 we think this is the perfect setting for a little treat outing. We’ll be having the ricotta, rainbow chard and walnuts ravioli.
