Starks Kitchen is a Chillingham Road eatery of some renown. Put it this way, it’s the sort of place whose location doesn’t really matter, because regulars will happily cross town to get to it. Were Starks to relocate to a mountainside, odds are that a band of devoted souls would still make the pilgrimage there every week. Rather than trying to be all the things to all the people, Starks Kitchen has made a deliberate point of trying to limit itself, both in terms of opening hours and in terms of the size of the menu. That way, quality can be focused on above all else and the restaurant’s proprietors know that every dish that leaves the kitchen is representative of their lofty standards and attention to detail. Dining at Starks Kitchen feels more like an event rather than a meal, despite this restaurant being anything but formal. The best word to describe the decor inside would be white. It’s all very white, brilliantly so, which, coupled with the clean and airy ambience, makes for a neutral atmosphere, one in which the food gets to take centre stage. And what food! It all starts with brunch which is served between 11 and 3 Wednesday to Friday and from 10am on weekends. Check the board for the latest specials while you nibble on gordal pitted olives, spiced nuts, Lindisfarne oysters and monkfish cheeks with chilli jam. When you’re ready to order a large plate, there’s the prospect of a gourmet all day breakfast to look forward to as well as 35-day aged rib eye steak. Burgers are a speciality here, with Wednesday the night to arrive to savour Starks’ unique take on the classic burger. From buttermilk fried chicken to tempura battered soft shell crab, Starks Kitchen does food like nowhere else in Newcastle.
