Jöro is a husband and wife run 12 table restaurant in a re-purposed shipping container in the new Krynkl development on Kelham Island, a man-made island dating back to the 1100’s and one of the Sheffield’s oldest manufacturing sites. It’s all rather fitting to have a steel building in the heart of the old industrial quarter of the steel (and cutlery) city. The word Jöro means ‘earth’ in old Norse and the restaurant is strongly influenced by nature despite their urban setting. Ingredients for their small plates and tasting menus are native and hyper seasonal.
Jöro Wine List
The Jöro wine list has about 100 bottles of organic, biodynamic and skin contact wines. There’s over 30 by the glass and carafe, giving you the chance to try lots of different styles as you weave your way through their menu, plus a few Sakes which they think pair just as well with their food. Bottle prices start at early £20s and gradually go up to around £80 and while most of the wine selection is from all over Europe (plenty from Austria Germany, Hungary) there are a few nods to South Africa, the US and even a white from Yamanashi in Japan. For a smallish list, it’s actually quite wide ranging.
