Newcastle's famous seafood restaurant to be recreated at Crisis
Simon Tennet, head chef at Crisis Skylight Newcastle Cafe, who for years ran the Fisherman's Wharf seafood restaurant on the city's Quayside, is to recreate the famous venue during a special evening at the Cafe.
On Friday 14 September the Café will be transformed to recreate the atmosphere of the original Fisherman’s Wharf restaurant, with a 5 star menu and service.
Award winning Simon was chef/owner at the original restaurant which is now closed.
Simon said: “The Fisherman’s Wharf was an iconic part of culinary culture in Newcastle and the restaurant had many accolades and a massive following.
“Customers old and new have booked up for this special evening, including young people who have read about the old restaurant - the demand for this event has been overwhelming and we could have held it three times over.
“The restaurant isn’t there anymore and I really wanted to recreate the food exactly the way we used to serve it there and the restaurant’s overall atmosphere. Even the matire d’ I worked with is going to be involved in what will be this very special evening.”
Simon, who has been internationally recognised for his contributions to the industry and received medals in Creative Culinary Arts, will be supported by chefs from other well-regarded restaurants, who have volunteered their time for the sold-out event.
