23 Bar and Restaurant
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
8 Fitzwilliam Street, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S1 4JB
If you're looking for award-winning food in a setting with a contemporary edge, then look no further than 23. Serving up a funky blend of cocktails, soul and superior service, the downstairs bar is a favourite haunt of Sheffield's in-crowd, but it's the newly remodelled restaurant upstairs that really has people talking. The menu is constantly evolving, but always maintains a careful balance between the classic and the au courant. Innovative fish dishes such as their light and utterly delicious crab and cucumber cannelloni starter, offer style and substance for the foodie in us all, whilst the butternut squash and mushroom risottos present comfort food at its most refined. There's a selection of impeccably cooked steaks available, served with a variety of sides and sauces. Modern twists on old favourites such as Thai fishcakes, honey-roast pork belly and chicken Kiev ensure that there is something for everyone. Each dish is easily paired with a selection from their concise and inspired wine list, or with one of the many Continental beers on offer. This brings me to the dessert menu - an absolute delight. Each dish is made in-house on a daily basis so whether you play it safe with the perfect creme caramel or take a gamble on a fragrant and creamy raspberry and thyme custard tart, you are guaranteed a sensory experience that will have you returning very soon.
