Flack: On Expenses - Anthony's Restaurant, Leeds

Reviewer: Rachel Morgan, account director, Brahm

- What is it good for?

A modern and creative restaurant that has made its name as one of the most exciting in the country, while also putting Leeds firmly on the foodie map. Special touches include home-made crispy pigs' ears on arrival and freshly baked bread accompanied by three types of butter.

- Signature dish

Risotto of white onion, espresso and parmesan air - the only dish that has remained untouched since opening in 2004.

- Who's the boss?

Executive head chef Anthony Flinn, the only Brit to work at the three Michelin-starred El Bulli, learned his skills from Ferran Adria in Spain. The restaurant is family-owned and run by a team that includes Flinn's father, sister and girlfriend.

- Tips please?

Although there is a six-week waiting list for Saturday evenings, it is much easier to get a table for weekday lunch. Look out for 'Anthony's Piazza' launching at the Corn Exchange in October, Flinn's fourth venture in Leeds.

- What is the damage?

£50 for two for two courses.

19 Boar Lane, Leeds, LS1 6EA, 01132 455922.
