New: Sociable dining on the menu at Graze Kitchen
Newmarket's High Street has just welcomed a grazing restaurant - and it looks delicious, as Velvet reports. . .
“A piece of sourdough, a slice of pecorino or Napoli salami, a bowl of olives and a glass of Valpolicella - what more could you want? To me, the simple foods are the ones that stick in your mind and your taste buds.” As founder Silas Teixeira explains, that’s the ethos behind The Graze Kitchen, now open on Newmarket’s High Street.
With a long history in hospitality - he was formerly manager of Burger Amour and DOUGH&Co, the woodfired pizza place, in Bury St Edmunds - The Graze Kitchen is the product of Silas’ personal passion for cheese, charcuterie and sociable dining. “This has always been a dream of mine,” he says. “The purpose is to graze - to eat slowly and enjoy the food. We want to bring people together around simple, but quality food.
“Newmarket is the perfect location. I looked at various options in and around Norfolk and Suffolk, but as soon as I walked into 100-102 High Street, Newmarket, I was instantly picturing where the kitchen would go, the coffee machine and seating options. . . With access from both the High Street itself and Wellington Street, the location was sold to me in an instant.”
Open noon to 10.30pm from Monday to Saturday and noon to 10pm on Sundays, Silas recommends ordering a bowl of nocellara olives as an appetiser (“to nibble on while you decide”), followed by whipped feta on sourdough with fresh figs to start, the Traditional Grazer for the main event (“it’s a bit of everything”), and a cinnamon-dusted pastel de nata to finish (“just delicious!”).
Veggie and vegan options are also available, along with a drinks menu which encompasses classic coffees, soft drinks, beers, ciders and cocktails too.
