Where to eat? A pick of the best restaurants in Leeds

Anthony's Restaurant
The Corn Exchange, Call Lane

An excursion to Leeds without visiting local culinary mogul Anthony Flinn's original offering would be a shame indeed. Dining is seriously exciting, with palate-teasing potions served through straws from tightly sealed bottles to begin. Follow with some daring juxtapositions: crab with chicken hearts and a lemon and basil sorbet, anyone? Audacity pays off, thanks to excellent ingredients and clean pure flavours.

Brasserie Forty 4
44 The Calls

Rustic brick and industrial architecture set the scene for this pleasing waterside venue. Expect well-executed brasserie fare followed by homely, satisfying puds. A seriously invigorating wine list confirms Brasserie Forty 4 as the perfect casual dinner venue.

Hansa's
72/74 North Street

A beacon of Gujarati vegetarian food in Leeds, Hansa's celebrated its 25th anniversary 2011. This veggie favourite is famed as an all-woman set-up, with Mrs Hansa Dabhi very much in control of proceedings. Enjoy draped ceilings, an Indian vocal soundtrack, family photos and some fine-tuned home cooking.
