A couple of minutes north of Leeds city centre is the Verve Bar and Grill. This fantastic eatery is conveniently located near Otley Road (the A660), so it’s perfect if you’re either heading into Leeds and want to stop off for lunch, or are leaving the city for the day and need to grab a meal on the way back.
Inside, you’ll find a sleek, modern space which also managed to have a relaxed and casual vibe. Sit down at one of the comfy, dark wood tables, as they’re perfect for either an everyday catch-up with family or a large party with friends. You can also enjoy the contemporary bar area, complete with industrial-style lighting and wood panels, which reflects the mixture of traditional and modern food that the chefs at the Verve Bar and Grill create.
While you’re choosing, go for a snack like the miniature, freshly baked artisan rolls with a delicious balsamic and olive oil mix or creamy butter. For your starters, there’s a lot to choose from: vegetarians and meat eaters are equally well catered for. For the former, try the tasty goat’s cheese, poached pear and beetroot salad, and meat-eaters might enjoy the Thai chicken spring rolls, served with an Asian-style coleslaw and sweet and sour dipping sauce. To follow, go for the amazing and innovative fig, walnut and blue cheese tart, served with a tempting bed of orange-braised baby gem and a tomato and shallot salad. We’d also recommend the famous Urban BBQ ribs, which fall right off the bone and have diners returning just to try them again. To finish, go for a classic British option of Eton Mess with fresh fruit and crushed meringue, or the devilish salted banoffe crumble.
The Verve Bar and Grill is a great place to head for any occasion, as the delicious food and laid-back atmosphere will make your night in Leeds feel really special.
