electriceast.jpg Barn Asia now Electric East. Huh?

One of our favourite restaurants, Barn Asia, is no more. Boo! But it’s back as Electric East. Hooray!

Barn Asia, sadly, had to shut up shop towards the back end of 2011 due to financial difficulties, but, thanks to a loyal customer, Phil Collerton, it’s just re-opened under new ownership as Electric East. (That’s some tip, Phil.) Still on board is Mark Lagun and his gaggle of supremely talented chefs who’ll be offering up the kind of innovative and high class dishes from Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand which saw the restaurant win a Remy Martin Award for Excellence as well as place in The Times Top Restaurants list. Welcome back.

Electric East , St James Boulevard, Waterloo Square, Newcastle. 0191 221 1000
