Restaurant review: Amici, Moortown, Leeds

Amici is a decent, hard working Italian north of the outer ring road. As is the way with these things, it’s authenticity is effortlessly underlined by the fact all of the staff (at least the ones we saw) speak Italian, at least to each other. This only serves to ‘add to the vibe’, as it were.

Restaurant review: Gallery Forty One, Kirkstall, Leeds

It is hard not to notice Gallery Forty One in Kirkstall – it sticks out like a sore thumb as a warm retreat next to the busy junction it overlooks, one this reviewer usually associates with commuting hell.

Restaurant review: Mango, Wetherby, Leeds

According to the modern idiom, I am a flexitarian or, put more simply, a vegetarian on flexi-time, as I heard someone call it recently.

Vegetarian cafe Roots and Fruits.

Review: Roots and Fruits, Leeds

There’s a real buzz around Leeds city centre these days with new openings galore, but sometimes it’s nice to escape the madness of Briggate and the Saturday shopping crowds.

Restaurant review: Sukhothai, Headingley, Leeds

If aliens ever landed and I happened to be the first person they met and for some reason they were particularly famished and wanting to partake in some ‘earth food’, I would take them to Sukhothai in Headingley (not that the other Sukhothais in Chapel Allerton, Leeds city centre and Harrogate aren’t just as good, it’s just that Headingley is much closer for me to drive to).

Restaurant review: Salvo’s, Headingley, Leeds

If Salvo’s was a car, it would be a Range Rover. Not that I’ve ever owned one, but I have been in one.

Restaurant review: New York Italian Kitchen, Wakefield

Wakefield is often considered a poor relation to Leeds when it comes to dining out establishments, but there are one or two gems dotted around the city if you care to do a spot of investigating and are prepared to take a chance.

The Deer Park on Street Lane at Roundhay

Review: The Deer Park, Roundhay, Leeds

Now the clocks have gone back, pubs, restaurants and cafes seem to have been transformed into semi-magical places of wonder, all aglow with soft orange lights - refuges, they are, as though half glimpsed in the depths of some dark, endless forest.
