A FAMOUS face has helped to launch a new menu at a York restaurant.

Celebrity chef Aldo Zilli visited J Baker’s Bistro in Fossgate to host a one-night special event at the restaurant, cooking up some of his famous fish dishes and Italian specialities.

Aldo said: “It’s great to travel up to York to one of the city’s destination restaurants. I am excited about previewing my menu to a northern audience in a venue where people are used to experimenting with new and exciting flavours.”

The restaurant’s new Essentials menu includes classic dishes like shepherd’s pie, slow-cooked beef and carrots, macaroni cheese and rose veal meat balls.

When you're struggling with your own menu and not getting enough custom with the food you produce get desperate and pay a celebrity. Free publicity but not much credibility!

Given the choice of eating a meal prepared by Jeff Baker and one by Zilli, I would go for Baker every time. I love that place!
