Following the success of its Manchester outpost, the London-based Gaucho chain has added another northern string to its bow with this swanky branch at the hub of Leeds’ financial and banking district. This bullish and unashamedly carnivorous offer is just the ticket for steak-loving brokers and legal eagles, who come here to lap up the thunderous vibes and glamorous, monochrome surroundings – think black-and-white cowhide trappings, glitzy mirrors and chandeliers. Ceviches and empanadas are the warm-up acts preceding the main event – huge boards laden with different cuts of prime-pampas reared beef with names like ancho and lomo (staff will guide you through the details). Desserts include dulce de leche in various guises, while the all-Argentinian wine list is an endlessly fascinating tome for dedicated oenophiles. Also book ahead for Gaucho’s Sunday feast – a meat-fest from the rotisserie.
