17 Elvent Bridge, Durham, DH1 3AA

Restaurant 17 burst onto Durham’s dining scene four years ago, and has become a firm favourite because of the unique gastronomic experience it offers. This multi-floor venue focuses on cuisine from around the world and boasts a relaxed atmosphere. The interior is a luxurious blend of low-level chandelier lighting, velvet seating and solid oak tables. This laid-back decadence is enhanced by a smooth soundtrack played throughout.

The menu offers an extraordinary adventure of cuisines. Those who love seafood will delight in dishes such as grilled king prawns marinated in coriander and garlic, and served with mixed salad leaves and chilli and lime dressing, while the Moroccan-inspired baked salmon with Mediterranean vegetables, minted pearl couscous and chermoula sauce demonstrates a completely different side to the chef’s extensive repertoire.

The menu crosses continents with ease and elegance, serving everything from hearty fillet steaks hot from the grill and creamy pots of mussels with French bread, to poached halibut with parsley papardelle pasta, asparagus, tiger prawns, and Sicilian-inspired sauce. It’s certain there will be something for every taste.

For a hearty three-course meal, plump for sautéed chicken liver accompanied by a stack of Lyonnaise potatoes and pancetta. Follow with slow-roasted lamb shank with bubble and squeak mash, carrots and minted lamb jus. The baked vanilla cheesecake with honeycomb and chocolate ganache is hard to resist, as is the chocolate fudge brownie with rich chocolate sauce and salted caramel ice cream.

There’s also a 1950s-inspired ice cream parlour on the top floor and a traditional tearoom below – exploring all six floors is a must. A bespoke private dining service is available, and menus can be tailored to suit all budgets. The experienced team is on-hand to deliver the perfect experience for any occasion, including corporate events, weddings and private parties. To make an enquiry, give the team a call and they’ll be happy to discuss your requirements.
