Diary: Let's Do Lunch - Anthony's

Reviewed by Patricia Lennon, PR director, Blueprint PR.

After honing his trade at the famous El Bulli near Barcelona, the young chef Anthony Flinn returned to the UK last year with his version of molecular gastronomy - the principle that sees a twisting of the rules of conventional cookery.

Meat, fish and vegetables are sourced each morning from Leeds Market, just a few hundred yards from this Boar Lane eaterie. Each meal is freshly prepared, while Anthony will make customers' favourite dishes given enough notice - perfect for the often under-catered-for vegetarian.

In its previous life as a bar owned by footballer-turned-Hollywood-hard-man Vinnie Jones, Anthony's was all low lights and beanbags. It is now well lit, airy and minimal. Being in a basement gives a cosy, almost private club feel, far removed from the goldfish bowl of many restaurants.

The lunch menu includes such delights as wild mushroom veloute and game terrine, with roast saddle of rabbit and red mullet as the main course.

And if your taste buds are not by now overworked, there's always baked pineapple and a range of local and British cheeses for dessert.

The wine list is extensive, ranging from Bollinger to a 2000 Chassagne Montrachet, and beers and spirits come from around the globe.
