In the same manner as Harvey Nichols in London, the Leeds branch has a good restaurant on its top floor; and again in a similar fashion, its approached via the delicatessen. The style is informal, with a bar down one side and an open plan kitchen on the other. Theres also a glass covered terrace offering views over the city.
Chef, Richard Walton-Allen, updated his menu every six weeks and uses an impressive quantity of locally-produced items, as their seasons come and go.
Expect the likes of Smoked Trout with Potato, Rocket and Caper Salad and Lemon Mayonnaise; Parsnip Risotto with Parsnip Crisps and Parmesan and Lishmans Harrisa Roast Lamb Loin with Lime and Goats Cheese among the starters.
Perhaps Spiced Crusted Tuna Loin, Choi Sum and a Spring Onion and Sesame Dressing; Pot-Roast Root Vegetables with Wild Mushroom Tortellini and Cep Broth and Char-Grilled Loin of Free-Range Pork, Beetroot and Potato Hash, Caper and Apple Dressing among the mains.
If you have room, finish with Spice Cake with Tiramisu Cream; Bakewell Tart with Chantilly Cream or Valrhona Chocolate Mousse, White Chocolate Sauce, Cherry Biscotti.
Efficient, professional service.
