Once again I was delighted to experience what food places there are within The Light Leeds for the people of the city. You can see how the previous time went here.
Under this one roof there is a cinema, lots to choose from for dining, a gym and hairdressers. Impressive indeed if I do sa so myself. I was invited along with a Carousel PR, some lovely bloggers and the company of my sister to sample a 3 course meal with our first stop at Café Rouge for drinks.
Café Rouge is a lovely chilled out atmosphere and this is the second time I have visited here. The first time was a great experience where I had steak and chips. On this occasion is was a good idea to start the night lightly and gradually build up to a climax, so we had pre-drinks accompanied by almonds and olives. Mmm!
For starters we set off to Miller and Carter where the table was laid with a variety of starter dishes. I was extremely excited to visit here again after such a great experience at this Leeds steakhouse. My recent review can be found here where I could not recommend the three course meal any more. I think I will forever love it for their steak as their starters were a little bit of a disappointment. I think this is due to the variety on display on the night. Of the items I do eat which exclude seafood like scallops, calamari and pork the dishes were presented perfectly and tasted nice too. The chicken wings, lime marinated salmon crostini and nachos where the dishes I tried out that evening and found them relatively yummy. I am glad I had already reviewed the cheesy mushroom dish before as this was not an option for everyone on the night and I loved this the first time round!
Frankie and Benny’s was the place to be for a main course in an American dinner setting. We had a large platter of all sorts to choose from. This platter was made up of beef burgers, calzones, pastas and salad. This was very filling!!
The most favourable part of the meal was dessert which was provided to us by Browns. I cannot recommend their brownies enough which I was looking forward to again but was pleasantly surprised to try something new. We were served Eton Mess. Mine unfortunately was a complete mess when it arrived as the tower had fallen but apart from this it was amazing. I could help but think how much calories were in the cream but I just had to let myself go! If you wondered why the dessert looks so perfect in its tower form and not a fallen mess.. this was my sisters haha. A great end to the night. I need to go back to Browns soon for my long overdue fix of brownies! I hope they are ready for me!!!
Have you been to any of these restaurants?
