Kollective, Site Gallery, Brown Street

The beef brisket Benedict we enjoyed was a wonder to behold. Blobs of siracha Hollandaise added a spicy, creamy kick to the decent amount of tender, slow cooked meat. A burst poached egg yolk leaked golden goodness over the toasted brioche, with crispy onions and tiny herbs being the final flourish.

Owner Vito Vernia at Grazie Authentic Italian at Leopold Street in Sheffield

Home-made crumpets hand created in the kitchen have their own section and come topped with everything from roast peaches, almond and yoghurt to our Korean fried chicken version. There’s a thick, deeply salt and pepper crust and soft, juicy meat inside. We’d come back for that alone.

Hope Cement Works

Diners ate in the shadow of Hope Cement Works, for a special collaboration between Ecclesall Road wine specialist Wine and Whiskey, with chef John Parsons.

The feast featured eight carefully curated wines, alongside innovative dishes with a fish focus, from sugar cured salmon and green tea to monkfish tagine.

Mowgli, Ecclesall Road

Mowgli Street Food offers fresh and intense street food dishes like those Indians eat at home. The gunpowder chicken was a street meat favourite which had all the flavours of India, garlic, ginger, garam masala, wrapped into an irregularly shaped, crispy package. There is also an entire vegan and gluten free menu.

Napoli Centro, Glossop Road

The menu is effectively simple, and if you like cheese, you will love it here. We shared some traditional street food from Naples for starters, frittatine with bucatini pasta, bechamel sauce, peas and smoked mozzarella, which was deliciously cheesy and quite filling.

Grazie, Leopold Street

As well as serving fresh homemade pastas and sauces Grazie has delicious-sounding brunches including mouth-watering paninis and toasted and topped English muffins. The best sellers are sapore di mare (a mixed seafood pasta) and agnello lento (pulled lamb orecchiette).

Nags Head, Loxley

The menu here is small but perfectly formed, with all the comforting home-cooked pub staples you’d expect. You can’t visit The Nags Head without trying the homemade pie – which at just £9.50 with a pint included must be one of the best value meals in Sheffield.

Cuore Siciliano, Crosspool

We had the Casarecce cone Pesce Spada e Melanzane for mains at this Sicillian restaurant. This was home-made Sicilian pasta cooked with fresh swordfish, aubergine, cherry tomatoes and white wine. Seasoned beautifully, it left a lingering fusion of flavour on the tongue.

The Delightful Touch, Sharrowvale

There’s a yummy range of tempting homemade cakes at this delightful cafe. They are made fresh on site daily. There’s also sandwiches and afternoon tea. The food that was presented to us was exceptional. It included mini quiches, finger sandwiches and sweet treats.

Heavenly Desserts, city centre

Desserts live up to their heavenly name at this pudding based restaurant. We had the ‘I Might As Well’, gooey fudge brownie served with lots of velvety custard and Belgian milk chocolate sauce, and the ‘White Kiss' crepe, with warm Belgian white chocolate.
