Green Room Restaurant

138 Victoria Road Scarborough YO11 1SL

Scarborough foodies are getting very excited about the latest menus at the Green Room – six-course tasting affairs at a ridiculously good value thirty quid. Young chef Robert Porter certainly knows his stuff. The locally sourced, monthly changing menus are stripped down, very fashionably, to key ingredients – "seabass, aniseed, blackberries" or "salmon, passionfruit, miso", to take recent examples. And the food walks the talk, with each course a masterclass in taste and texture. There are in-house gastro-jokes too, with parmesan breadcrumbs scattered like sand on a sea-scene seabass with samphire, or "chocolate, peanut, caramel" being a cheffy take on a Snickers bar. Frankly, for now, we wouldn't look any further than the tasting menu, but there's also a tempting 'Taste of Yorkshire" menu (£30/35) and an early bird deal for the nearby Stephen Joseph Theatre. The restaurant itself is a cosy, wood-panelled space with two intimate bay windows perfect for hand-holding couples, and chatty service is kept all in the family. This is a restaurant worth watching.
