    We had my brother's Stag Weekend in York.

    His name is Raj. So we went to an Indian Restaurant called The Rising of the Raj.

    Fnnar fnnar.

    Romantic: The Blue Bicycle, Fossgate is a York tradition for these sorts of occasions, serving French cuisine.

    More relaxed: Melton's Too, Walmgate (there is a more formal Melton's on
    Scarcroft Road). This time of year they should be doing seasonal menus, which means locally-grown asparagus. Very good prices, they also do tapas.

    Vegetarian: Vanilla Black has moved to London, so try El Piano instead, especially if you can get a seat in one of the smaller upstairs rooms. Mexican and tapas.


    Real Carnivore: There's an El Gaucho, an Argentinian steak-house on Walmgate as well, which will burn meat of all descriptions for you (yum!).

    Indian: That's a toughie, the Himalayan on the Mount is (was?) pretty good, as was the Bengal Brasserie, but don't quote me on either of those as it's been a while.

    Italian: L'Antiqua Locanda, Shambles (NOT Bari, opposite it). Fantastic Italian, not the usual Pizza Express/Ask 'popular Italian'. Excellent wine list.

    .........through gritted teeth to French speaking academics who revel in every misplaced accent and spelling mistake on the menu. :rolleyes:

    There's also MaccyD's on Blake Street in York. Their fries are French.

    The following evening, after we'd went to the Raj, we went to a Kebab Takeway near the Wall.

    Food was good. Ambience not too bad. If you didn't mind the women with tattoos (and fists clenched); the drunken men (with fists clenched) and that underlying current of violence.

    It was away from the town centre. A road ran parallel to the wall (and the river). It was a really small place - queues out into the nondescript terraced houses full of students.

    No other details as I'd had a few.

    Sorry to distract you from your thread.

    Totally agree, my fave place in York.

    If you need any recommendations for Palma, just let me know.
    Did I mention I'm in Palma at the moment?:ohmy:

    J Bakers is a nice 'posh' style resto but not too pricey. Run by a friend of mine.
