About: Located close to up-and-coming Kelham Island, Jöro is an urban restaurant influenced by nature, and focusing on using the very best quality ‘hyper seasonal’ and sustainable ingredients which are locally sourced when possible.
With a tag-line of a ‘meal built of many small plates’, this unique restaurant does just that – forward-thinking small plates and tasting menus featuring the likes of barbecued Moss Valley pork neck, Goosnargh duck breast in Sheffield Heather Honey and spices, or a plate of Ken Holland vegetables – an ‘urban cultivator’ AKA the King of Crops.
A relative new-comer, Jöro is already the proud owner of 3 AA Rosette awards, Michelin Bib Gourmand and a score of 4 in The Good Food Guide. With only about ten per cent of restaurants nationwide worthy of the AA Rosette award, Jöro is the place to try for that modern, fine dining experience in Sheffield.
