Them Frenchies - they sho' know how to cook. Okay, the chef at La Grillade in Leeds was probably born in Bradford or Otley (or Leeds, obviously) to dyed-in-the-wool Yorkshire folk, but someone, somewhere, with connections to this French restaurant studied and soaked in the culinary expertise of our gallic friends over there across la Manche.
Had the Pate starter, followed by Chicken Chasseur, and the Chocolate Mousse for dessert - yes, okay, I know those are very unadventurous choices but I'm here on business, on an expense budget, and so wanted to stick to the table d'hôte menu. All were excellent - not Michelin star standards but I'm sure they're not aiming for that; just well cooked and well presented, good quality French cuisine. If I had one quibble it would be that I was surprised the butter that came with the bread was one of those pre-packed little packets - not a big deal but not what I was expecting.
If I hadn't had three glasses of house red wine it would only have cost me £19 for three delicious courses from the table d'hôte menu (two courses would have only been £16). House red was (if I recall correctly) £4.50 for a 175ml glass - very nice wine and not bad vaule at all.
Very nice food, cosy little basement of a place, friendly and attentive service. What more can one ask, one asks?
