On Saturday evening, Matt and I were very kindly invited along to the Cut and Chase restaurant in York to try out their delicious food and cocktail menu.
It was our two year anniversary on Friday but we didn’t actually celebrate on Friday and instead we decided to have a lovely date day/night on Saturday. We had a lovely walk around town, came home and played card games in the glorious sunshine and then headed back into town to enjoy a bloody delicious meal at Cut and Chase.
Here’s what we ate at the lovely restaurant on Saturday night.
We started our evening at Cut and Chase in the lovely garden area of the restaurant; it was beautiful sunshine and it was just so lush sitting outside with Matt toasting the last two years together.
My cocktail of choice was the ‘Lady Violet’ – a heady combination of vodka, elderflower, prosecco and little bursts of raspberry flavouring. It was so refreshing and incredibly moreish; perfect for an evening drinking sesh in the sun!
Matt chose the ‘Ruby Rose’ cocktail which consisted of vodka, rose liqueur, lime, sugar and mint. Again, this offering was truly refreshing and so delicious. I could easily get drunk on a few of these!
Once our table was ready, we headed inside to a cute little booth in the corner of the restaurant; the restaurant itself isn’t huge but I think it’s the perfect size. It’s cosy, cute and very intimate and the decor is minimalist but still lovely.
We perused the menu and settled on a concoction of bread with garlic butter and a yummy olive oil dip to start. The bread had a perfect crunchy crust with a beautifully soft interior, while the garlic butter was uh-mazing. You guys know how obsessed I am with garlic anyway and this butter was on a whole other level.
For mains, I opted for the chicken breast with a fondant potato, peas, pancetta, onion and a heavenly garlic and white wine sauce.
I actually had this main on a previous visit to Cut and Chase, and the second time certainly didn’t disappoint – if anything, it was actually better than the first time!
The chicken was soft and tender was a slightly crispy exterior while the fondant potato was beyond bloody beautiful. I’m definitely going to try (and fail) to recreate this at home one day! The sauce complimented the meal perfectly and the little additions of the vegetables went spectacularly with the rest of the meal. I would 110% recommend the chicken if you ever find yourself at Cut and Chase because it really is something special.
Matt’s main was the five bean burger, which I have to admit I was pretty aprehensive about but I needn’t have worried – it was delicious! The flavours of the burger were honestly incredibly and I was thoroughly surprised at just how yummy it was! The side of chunky chips were the perfect accompaniment and if you’re looking for a veggi alternative at Cut and Chase – or you just want to try something different – then both myself and Matt would definitely recommend the five bean burger!
We had the most amazing evening at Cut and Chase and it really was the perfect place to celebrate our two year anniversary. The staff are so unbelievably lovely, friendly and accomodating, the food is just to die for and the cocktails were so yummy and refreshing.
If you’re looking for a special place to eat in York then I would definitely recommend visiting Cut and Chase!
