The Hart Lake Escapes team were lucky enough to be invited along to the opening evening of the new ‘Corner Grill House’ in York through Visit York. We had previously met Radek, owner and chef, at a Visit York function in the summer of 2022 and were determined to try his existing restaurant. However, his amazing reputation and ability to only cater for 18 covers, meant he was always booked up for weeks in advance. As you can imagine being in the hospitality industry ourselves, we can’t always plan our nights out that far ahead.
Radek has been in the industry for some 17 years, opening and running the original Corner Grill House for the last 10 years gaining 2AA Rosettes!
The ethos behind Radek’s restaurant is simple: use the very best seasonal and locally sourced ingredients, then conjure up the very best of meals with them. He only works with suppliers and farmers that are as passionate about growing as he is about cooking.
I cannot say anything else other than the evening was fantastic, as was the food, the house wines, the atmosphere and the hospitality. The restaurant was buzzing with the first-class waiters totally spoiling us. We were served with a selection of small plates incorporating many of the delicious starters and main dishes that are included in the menu. Absolutely first class.
I’d just like to say thank you to Radek, his family and the team for inviting us to such a delightful evening and for bring quality food and hospitality to our beautiful city.
We would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for that special meal with locally supplied produce cooked to perfection, to get booked in!
