The multi-award-winning restaurant takes pride in its fresh takes on culinary classics, incorporating the Best of British and international cuisines in extraordinary dishes that are sure to make you hungry for more. Branches Jesmond Leading Purveyors of Elegant Fine Dining Experiences - North East England Mar21133 Located on the popular Osborne Road in the heart of Jesmond, Newcastle, the mood is vibrant and eclectic, with posh boutiques and tree-lined streets that draw families and professionals alike from miles around to this suburban haven that is subtly steeped in grandeur. Opened in 2018, following the overwhelming success of its sister restaurant, Branches Restaurant Jesmond aims to provide customers with modern cuisine and a bespoke dining experience, all encapsulated in a luxurious contemporary setting. High ceilings, teamed with stark Georgian period features and a magnificent centrepiece that takes the form of a swirling, spiral staircase, are just a hint of what this intimate and stylish dining space can offer, catering to individuals, parties, and events, and setting the mood for everything from a romantic evening meal for two to a professional business lunch. There’s something for everyone featured on the menu. From British classics with a twist such as Rosemary and Garlic Lamb Rump and the much-loved Fish and Chips; to the more Mediterranean dishes of Tagliatelle Carbonara and Seafood Linguini; and even the taste of the Far East with Thai Spiced Fishcakes, the Branches menu promises something to tempt every discerning palate. The menu is the creation of Executive Head Chef, Cevat Robert Elat, who takes great pride in his work, sourcing the freshest local ingredients from nearby suppliers, farms and markets to ensure both his “Best of British” and “Around the World” menus deliver exceptional quality time and time again. As the menus are regularly changed and refreshed, there is always something seasonal to be found at Branches that is sure to delight visitors and ensure they return for more. Cevat has several awards under his belt, having won the title of North East Chef of the Year in 2015 and 2016. He has also worked with some of the best chefs in some of the area’s most prestigious restaurants. Consequently, Cevat has taken all that he has learnt and injected his own inspired genius to steer the restaurant to success with his modern take on food. It’s no surprise, therefore, that Branches has recently been awarded the prestigious accolade of Leading Purveyors of Elegant Fine Dining Experiences for North East England - just another feather in its cap that joins the existing roster of Diners Choice Titles, accolades that have been proudly held by the restaurant for the last few years. If you’re seeking a sophisticated dining experience that puts a modern yet timeless twist on your old-time favourite dishes, then Branches Restaurant Jesmond is undoubtedly the culinary destination for you and your loved ones!
