Modern British

Husband and wife team, Adam and Lovaine Humphrey have moved their modern British (ish) restaurant Arras from Sydney, Australia to York, England – and the north has reaped the benefits. Artistic configurations of thoughtfully sourced ingredients, great cheese and bread are served in a casual space decorated with murals (be warned: they’re a bit of a Marmite thing). Lunch is great value coming in typically under £25 for three courses, but the ‘kitchen’ (tasting) menu is not much more. Excellent cooking at a very reasonable price could be the tagline with options such as scallops with curried quinoa, ‘potato salad and coleslaw’ (garlic potatoes, potato melt, marinated cabbage, carrot and shallot) and inventive puds. ‘Not Terry’s’ chocolate orange composition and the toffee jelly with coffee ice cream are a draw in themselves. Lovaine’s CV includes The Fat Duck, specialising in wine. Here, she and Adam have complied a list of 200 unique and desirable bins, with a few Aussie corkers.
