Square Meal Review of Cafe No.8 Bistro ?

Gillygate, just outside the York’s city walls, is emerging as a charming street of individual enterprise. Cafe No.8 Bistro is a prime example. A cheerful little cafe by day serving breakfast, sandwiches, soups & salads, it transforms itself at night into an intimate neighbourhood bistro. Dishes may not be the height of sophistication but are ambitious given the small dimensions of the kitchen. A meal may kick off with Gorgonzola & mascarpone tart with spiced fig chutney, & follow with wild boar & ale sausages with celeriac mash & slow-cooked red cabbage or pan-fried salmon on crab, lemongrass & creme fraiche risotto topped with spicy chorizo. Pannacotta with rhubarb compote rounds things up, while tables in the leafy split-level garden at the back expand this small operation in summer.
