WITH Valentines Day just around the corner, we at Tside are here to give you the lowdown on Boro’s top eating spots.
When you think Valentines you think romantic meals. But where in Boro hits that spot?
1. Central Park Middlesbrough.
A classy establishment situated opposite Middlesbrough’s scenic Albert Park, certainly one of Boro’s better views. With large glass windows at the front of the restaurant it is easier than you’d think to soak in the atmosphere and forget you are in Middlesbrough at all, how about enjoying a meal in Central Park, New York- what could be more romantic than that?
With two courses at £10.95 per person, prices are very reasonable and not going to set you back a ridiculous amount, so no taking the romantic shine off the affair when it comes to settling the bill.
2. Al Forno.
Yet another classy joint, this one situated on Southfield Road- so a literal stones throw from Uni- it is perfect for a romantic Valentines meal. With Italian Chic design throughout the restaurant you would be forgiven for thinking you were enjoying a meal in Venice rather than Southfield Road, anything for a little romantic escape?
Al Forno also roll out their special Valentines menu, with 2 courses for £22.95 or 3 courses for £25.95 prices are a little steep, but can you really put a price on love?
Starters is a Valentines Day heaven. Situated literally next door to the cinema, why not a film after your meal? Make a night of it after all.
The restaurant has a nice vibe to it, and looks really expensive without actually being a real wallet buster. Starters pride themselves on their unique dining experience- ‘choose as little or as much as you want’- by which you can have just the one course, or a little bit of every dish if you or your partner are a fussy eater.
Prices range from £10.95 through to £25.95 so again, another reasonable choice for a Valentines meal.
4. The Oven.
Linthorpe Roads newest restaurant. The Oven comes with all of the ambiance you could possibly hope for and food that is positively divine. The theme of the restaurant is hard to pin down, it is very busy but is a lovely environment to enjoy a meal. If I was to try and describe it, I would go with a shabby chic bistro.
The food is of the best quality and service is second to none. Overall an enjoyable experience for any occasion, especially Valentines day.
The Oven is also rolling out a special Valentines menu, with 3 courses for £29.95- steep for some student budgets, but why not treat yourself.
