Hi Alex

   I've been to the man behind the curtain...it is as much "an experience"
   as it is a meal. Its not cheap (-L-120 or so per person) for the option
   we took...but you got 10 courses with 7 different drinks for that (the
   courses are not large amounts, this isn't a medieval feast)...stuff you
   would never think to eat or drink in combinations you never
   consider...the staff talk you through it all...but all in all fabulous.
   While it is booked up for a year or so in advance you can get lucky
   with cancellations; we rang on the Tuesday and ate on the Friday.

   Probably a stretch on a student's budget, but worth asking for as a
   birthday present from your dad...

     Hi Alex,
     Leeds has its first michelin starred restaurant for many years with
     the man behind the curtain however I've never been and no idea what
     the wine is like ( chef also looks like a freak)
     For great French wine accompanied with good food Kendell's bistro by
     the playhouse is the best in Leeds. It's a great little restaurant
     and they have a really good selection of red and white wines and
     very decently priced.
     (http://www.kendellsbistro.co.uk/wine_7_1787011667.pdf). I would
     recommend this place.
     In terms of restaurants, if you like Rioja ( I'm not that keen)
     http://www.ambiente-tapas.co.uk does great tapas dishes and lots of
     good Spanish wine - it's a different selection to your usual bog
     standard Rioja. They specialise in Sherry - obviously not my thing
     but the wife says the sherry flights are good.
     Gaucho does great steaks accompanied by heavy reds (Argentinian
     Malbecs etc). They also do lots of different champagnes.
     Fazenda is a Brazilian meat feast restaurant with another good South
     American wine list. Lots of good wines but not my taste.
     Bibis is not my place but every time I've been the food is excellent
     and they always have a good wine selection.
     Hopefully this gives you a few choices. Leeds is changing so fast
     these days I can't keep up. I used to pride myself on having been to
     every pub and bar in Leeds . I can't even name half of them these
     days so I'm sure there's a few offering decent wine these days.
     The beer has certainly improved. After Tetleys died ( although had a
     great pint of hand pulled in Scabby Taps last night) the beer went
     down hill, but now with all the independent breweries taking over
     there's so many great pubs serving top quality ales.... But you
     didn't ask for that did you!

     Hello,
     I'm Alex, Damian's daughter. My dad said I could use his email
     account to
     ask a question about finding a restaurant with a decent wine list in
     Leeds.
     Could someone please let me know? (Damian said that at least Richard
     Walker
     should know... ?)
     Thank you very much to those who sent us suggestions for
     accommodation and
     jobs. I've settled into the Hyde park area and I'm loving it here!
     Thank you for the help.
     Alex
