Pershore Patty Recommends – June 2017
The summer months are very busy for us, and so after a long week it’s become a bit of a habit that we’ll find ourselves back at The Elgar Inn on a Sunday evening after work. Sometimes we just can’t resist the temptation of indulging in a comforting pizza or pasta dish to reward the day’s efforts.
After receiving some good news in June, and having heard about Prithvi Restaurant in Cheltenham from a colleague, it seemed like the ideal place to celebrate. It speaks volumes that we’re still talking about the food a month later and planning our return visit later in the year.
Friar Street Kitchen had also been on our radar for a few weeks since learning of the new Worcester restaurant. Prompted by a video posted on their Facebook page of a raclette cheese grill being scraped onto a burger, we headed over there almost immediately.
A separate midweek trip to Worcester evolved into an afternoon of extravagance when we had lunch at Gourmet Burger Kitchen in Crowngate Shopping Centre, prior to our pre-arranged chocolate tasting with Hotel Chocolat in Cathedral Square.
June ended spectacularly with an invite to The Crown by ARCC in Martley launch evening, showcasing some exceptional food, cooked by new chef Finn Baird (formerly of St. JOHN in London), whilst also introducing new manager Brajesh Kumar (formally of Lasan in Birmingham).
Prithvi Restaurant, 37 Bath Road, Cheltenham, GL53 7HG
My top pick this month is Prithvi Restaurant, which was absolutely worth travelling over to Cheltenham for a midweek celebration. The fine dining restaurant puts a refined twist on the much-loved Indian classics and is a real treat!
