New, energetic owners Alex and Sam are putting their own creative stamp on Restaurant Twenty-Two. Their relentless passion to bring refined, relaxed food to the city shines through in everything they do. The intimate, independent restaurant is small enough to allow them to focus on every guest, ensuring quality is paramount, but is big enough to make an impact on Cambridge’s dining scene. Soft lighting, fireplaces and restored features highlight the beauty of the Victorian terrace building.
An excellent-value set lunch menu offers two courses for £16 and three for just £20. You’ll feast on stunning food for a fraction of the price. Come evening, dine from the à la carte or indulge in the five- or seven-course tasting menu.
The carefully drafted menus are quite rightly influenced by local produce and transform season to season. Nibble Guinness bread and butter before moving on to a perfectly executed starter of poached langoustines with apple, tarragon and seaweed. Celeriac with morels, black truffle and hazelnut, and roasted Cornish cod with lentils, sherry vinegar and turnip are complex main-course dishes that reveal the talent and creativity coming from the kitchen. Warm chocolate mousse accompanied by peanut parfait and salted caramel calls to sweet-toothed fiends, while the assortment of cheeses is a hit with those who prefer to end on a savoury note.
Book the private dining room upstairs for special occasions and let the chef work his magic to create bespoke menus that match the mood of your unique event.
