The Swine That DinesModern British
Adventurous, nose-to-tail (or veggie, or themed) cooking at one of Leeds most promising restaurants. The Swine That Dines is fast become one of the toughest places to get a table in the city. Driven by a passion for extremely high welfare meat – and eating all of the animal – the seven dishes on the set menu (there’s no a la carte) are designed for two people to share, and clock in at around £50 between two. Seeing as it’s BYO too (for now), that’s an excellent deal for all involved. Head Chef is Stuart Myers, a man without borders who combines a background in brasserie cooking with inspiration from kitchens and bookshelves around the world. Ingredients are listed on the menu as collections of ingredients (a la Rogan…. Or any restaurant with Michelin aspirations) and arrive as cohesive combinations, a showreel if you will of processes and techniques boasting the chef’s versatility; cold and warm salads; classic French boudin and gratin; pates and rillettes and croquettes and falafels; pan-fried heart and liver and unpopular fish. Bring a wine with a pedigree as solid as The Swine That Dines – and you could be in for the night of your life.
