This will be the second time I have told you all to go to Flinty Red, but in case you missed my first recommendation here is another one.
I love this place, it’s a lot like my favourite California restaurants, all about small plates and trying lots of little things and sharing with your dinner companions.
It’s very small, so you will need to book but they do have seating at the bar an idea I adore. It’s all very mediterranean.
My first order… you gotta get the anchovy toast, unless of course you hate anchovies… but even then you should try.
It’s a quick dish so ensures you get a nibble as soon as you’ve ordered.
I chose the ravioli as my first dish… the filling was fonduta di castelmagno which is an Italian cheese if I remember rightly.
It was insanely good.
My second pick was baked scallops with chilli, garlic, salt pork and fino.
Amazing. I love scallops, my favourite sea food by far.
We did pick some greens too, this Hispi cabbage was delicious. I am definitely going to try to cook some at home.
My husband picked the Onglet steak, barely cooked it was beautiful melt in the mouth meat.
Then in order to write a full blog post, we had to order desserts. My husband ordered Crème brûlée. A classic and a favourite.
I order the salted caramel mousse, I love salted caramel and salted chocolate right now. I cannot get enough. The mousse was ridiculously light and almost a foam, amazing. The chocolate part was even better, really thick and so rich.
So Bristol people if you haven’t been you really need to, if you have then maybe it’s time to go again!
Visitors this is a great stop if you are spending a day or night in the city, and a great date spot.
