Review on Malmaison

A strikingly renovated old riverside warehouse on the city's trendy Quayside is the setting for this contemporary brasserie in the Malmaison Hotel. A curving candlelit stairway opens through a heavy velvet drape to the dining room, where bold colours and decadent fabrics create a striking atmosphere. Rich leather banquettes and solid wood-topped tables in discreet bays reinforce the mood.

The menu has its share of brasserie classics like moules marinière, goujons of lemon sole with tartare sauce, and rump steak with frites, as well as some more innovative ideas with a Mediterranean accent. Goats' cheese is served with shaved fennel, red and yellow tomato salad, 'saltimbocca' of monkfish comes with sweet potato purée, and seared peppered tuna is accompanied by spiced lentil salsa. Desserts follow the same route, offering crème brûlée and summer pudding alongside tiramisù and chocolate fondue with exotic fresh fruit and homemade marshmallow.

The adjoining bar is a modish venue with unrivalled views of the Tyne and cool live music, while Café Mal is a deli-style set-up ideal for panninis and cappuccino.
