So once again I headed back to Nottingham this weekend. Friday was Danny's birthday and unfortunately for him he had to work. So on Saturday morning we headed into town and wandered around the shops before treating ourselves to a lovely lunch at Delilah's. Now if any of you are local to Nottingham or ever find yourself in the city, I urge you to head here. The food is lovely and the atmosphere is great.
I could only describe Delilah's as a restaurant/ deli. You can pop in and do a quick shop or grab yourself some food. There are two floors, the bottom floor is mainly the shop but with a few tables by the window. Then I guess, what could only really be described as a bar, takes up the rest of the bottom floor with displays of cake and views into the kitchen. The second floor is more like a mezzaline, I always like to grab a table on the mezzaline and watch people below. When we arrived on saturday, it was very busy, both of us had overlooked the fact that sunday was mothers day... but luckily for us there was only about a five minutes wait for a seat upstairs. Whilst we waited, we wandered around the shop and Danny bought something for his mum.
The restaurant is in a lovely old building and I spend most of my time looking up at the ceiling. There is a lot on offer and to be honest the food feels like such a treat to eat and also quite healthy. The menu is tapas style with a selection of sandwiches, salads, cheese and meat platters, there is also a selection of cakes, teas and wines. I ordered a croque monsieur on gluten free bread and Danny got a prosciutto, parmesan and rocket sandwich on ciabatta bread... although he did take out all the rocket.
I've been a lover of delilah's for years and when they upsized a few years ago I was overjoyed. The place has become very well known in Nottingham and has even got a couple of awards under its belt. Let me know if you check it out or even if you just fancy having a look at their hampers or what they're all about check out their website here.
