From the best places for a burger, to where to find the finest specialist cuisine, we’ve rounded up the answers to some of the most frequently-asked questions about restaurants in Southampton.
There are plenty of great restaurants in Southampton to choose from, serving everything from British pub grub to the finest foods of the Far East. Here are just three of our favourites.
You’ve got a fair number of options when it comes to good quality Italian restaurants in Southampton, but we’ve narrowed it down to three of the best.
When you’re exploring the wide array of cuisine on offer at Southampton’s best restaurants, you might find yourself puzzled by this distinction. Mediterranean food is a bit of a catch-all term for fare produced in places like Greece, Turkey, Morocco and Lebanon. So, while all Greek food is Mediterranean, not all Mediterranean food is Greek.
You will typically find foods like falafel and adana on a Mediterranean restaurant’s menu, but you won’t usually find them on a Greek one.
Silver service is a term you sometimes encounter when taking in food and drink at the best restaurants and hotels, and is usually associated with formal dining. It typically involves serving a guest their food onto dishes at the table (rather than it being plated up in the kitchen) and is usually done from the left.
The guest to the host’s right (usually a female) is traditionally served first and service continues in that direction. Plates are cleared from the right, as are glasses.
A variation on silver service is butler service, in which the diner serves themselves from a platter held by the butler. Traditionally, this happened in large homes on a Sunday when the waiting staff had the evening off.
Brunch is the most important meal of the most important part of the week - the weekend. Lazing and grazing is the only way for some weekend mornings or to kickstart a slow weekday. Right now, London loves brunch. And there are so many options, from super meaty to Antipodean (and lets be honest, they do lead the way). New Yorkers say we don’t do brunch properly, but really it’s just that we don’t do it like them. Brunch for us is more breakfast style; you’ll never see pasta on a brunch menu. And that seems right to me.
Cuddle up with Thai food and a movie or head out for a prix fixe meal and candlelit conversation? Here’s some ammo for your next date-night decision.
