“We’ll be using different ingredients like truffle, caviar, Japanese grade A5 wagyu beef and lobster. We’ve got a small selection of our exclusives which will centre around these. The looks will be different along with the taste.
“We’re experimenting with flavours to make something that looks more modern than a bowl full of sauce and some meat.
“It’s a bigger concept that we’re bringing together. It’s an idea that’s not really around – especially in the North-East of England.”

The restaurant added: “It’s an exciting venture and we aim to provide the very best in customer service as well as world class dishes. It’s proved to be a good decision opening just before the Christmas period and we’ve seen some groups of people come in to enjoy a top-quality experience. We’ve had no problem with the guidelines.
Early indications are the restaurant is already looking toward a vibrant year ahead putting Darlington firmly on the culinary map.
