They’re eclectic, they’re generous on the skyline views, and they’re among the best in the North. Whether you’re local or just visiting, here are ten Leeds restaurants you need to try.
Crafthouse is British fine dining but with a few (welcome) digressions. Think butter roasted turbot, beer-braised pork cheeks, and truffled orzo pasta with mascarpone and spinach. It all takes place on the fifth floor of Trinity – yes, the views are as captivating as the menu. ‘Leeds needs these posh haunts just as much as it needs its independents,’ says Yorkshire Evening Post, and it seems the locals agree.
The Man Behind the Curtain
Let’s be honest. When thinking of Leeds, this is probably the first restaurant that comes to mind. Wild almost to the point of absurdity, TMBTC is performance cuisine – any preconceptions of long tasting menus are left at that: mere assumptions. Dinner here is, quite simply, fun, exciting, creative, and unexpected.
