Newcastle Restaurant Week dates and participating restaurants announced

NE1 has announced the city’s 2022 events calendar with Newcastle Restaurant Week, one of NE1’s most popular events and the first for two years.

More than 70 of Newcastle’s city centre restaurants will be joining NE1 for the 20th Newcastle Restaurant Week. From January 17 to 23, NE1 Newcastle Restaurant Week will give diners the chance to enjoy meals and celebrate the city’s growing foodie scene.

This January, participating restaurants will offer a variety of menus at three price points, £10, £15, and £20 per head, giving people the chance to try new dishes and venues.

Many of the restaurants who were involved in the first event back in 2011 are lining up to take part again this month. Among the originals are Blackfriars, Dabbawal, and the 21 Hospitality Group, including 21 Newcastle.

In addition to the original devotees, this January’s event will also welcome some of the city’s newcomers including Khai Khai, an Indian street food restaurant on Queen Street, which has catered for stars including actor Harrison Ford.

The Hard Rock Cafe which opened its doors during the pandemic will be joining for its first event alongside Castro’s, part of the Vaulkhard Leisure Group, on Hood Street.

Other new restaurants quick to sign up for January’s Restaurant Week include Gino D’Acampo on the Quayside, Café Andaluz, Hen and Hops, The Exchange, AYLA, and 20/20 in the Bigg Market.

Ben Whitfield, head of marketing and events at NE1 Ltd said: “We are beyond excited to be launching our 20th NE1 Newcastle Restaurant Week and turning the spotlight on the city’s foodie scene, which has been hard hit by the pandemic.

“It is great that food and dining will once again be driving the public into the city. After the last lockdown, Newcastle was quick to bounce back with food leading the way in encouraging people back into restaurants and the city.

“As a city, we are rightly proud of our restaurant community. We have more independents per capita than any other city outside London and a wealth of major brands too, many of whom are primed and ready to take part in January’s event.”
