Bavette is a newly opened neighbourhood bistro in Leeds, serving generous French bistro dishes in a sophisticated dining room. The menu here is designed to be full of dishes that have a classic drive behind them, and the team say that it's their aim to get the balance of generosity and quality just right. The bistro is the work of Sandy and Clément, who met whilst working in a wine bar bistro in London. The pair have a shared love for great food, hospitality and wine, and they just knew they had to bring their dream to Sandy's home town of Leeds, with a touch of Clément's French flair. 

The menu begins with delicious snacks, like the comte cheese croquettes, along with cervelle de canut with crudites and walnut oil, and Cantabrian anchovies with shallots, butter and toast. These nibbles are perfect for sharing amongst the table over drinks whilst you decide what to eat for your main meal. Starters include a caramelised onion tartlets with radicchio and Otley pecorino, along with a shellfish bisque with rouille crostinis, pork belly rillons with frisee salad and ravigote sauce, and a venison and pork pate en croute with Earl Grey jelly.

There are some really scrumptious main courses to choose from, like the pan fried gnocchi with squash, cavolo nero, hazelnuts and fresh ricotta, along with skrei cod with a vin jaune sauce, brown shrimps, buttered leeks and fondant potatoes. To share, why not try the 800g cote de boeuf with a red wine jus, Dauphinoise potatoes and hispi cabbage. Last but not least, no French meal is complete without a delicious dessert. Try the creme brulee with Yorkshire rhubarb and shortbread, a classic Paris-brest, or chocolate sabayon tart with fromage blanc sorbet.
