100 Milestone Mark Reached By Ne1 Newcastle Restaurant Week

Issue 19

The date has been set for January’s NE1 Newcastle Restaurant Week, a hugely popular event in Newcastle’s event calendar for all Northern foodies. From 16th 22nd January, NE1 will be hosting the 13th NE1 Newcastle Restaurant Week and will celebrate a major milestone in the event’s six-year history as it welcomes over 100 restaurants to take part.

The rising number of participants mirrors the growth of the city’s restaurant scene; 24 new restaurants are to open in the new intu Eldon Square Grey’s Quarter alone and Newcastle currently offers more restaurants per square foot than any other Northern city.

Among the sign-ups are brands new to the city including Chaophraya and the newly launched Dobson and Parnell, the latest venture from award winning restaurateur, Andy Hook. Newcastle diners and food lovers will be given the opportunity to try out these new venues for only £10 or £15 per head.

The event continues to grow in popularity and status year on year. At the last count, over 350,000 diners had taken part in NE1 Newcastle Restaurant Week since its launch in January 2011 with over 40,000 dining during last August’s Restaurant Week alone.
