It's late Friday afternoon and the clock strikes 5pm, the atmosphere in The Alchemist is alive with the city crowd celebrating an end to the working week, and the cocktails menu is offering a delectable start to the weekend...
Located on the top floor of Trinity Leeds is The Alchemist, a restaurant with stylish surroundings, an electric ambience, delicious food and a fabulous view of the city.
The lighting is warm and delicate, the leather chairs plush and comfortable, and the glass frontage surrounding the dining area overlooks onto a beautiful city chic view.
The Alchemist is the perfect venue for a romantic date night, cocktails with the girls, or indulging in high quality food with friends.
To start the evening, I ordered a strawberry bellini, the perfect glass of fruity sparkle to start the weekend; made with Bel Star Prosecco and strawberry caviar, this is the most delectable drink and perfect for unwinding from weekday stress!
The Alchemist offers a fabulous selection of 'tabatizers' for one or two people to share prior to the main course.
I opted for the crispy baby calamari which were accompanied by a creamy lemon mayonnaise, they were delicious yet light on the stomach, so I was more than ready for the main course to arrive.
Michael chose the thai fish cakes that were served with a sweet chilli dip - once again another tasty starter that I'd highly recommend!
Both 'tabatizers' offered generous portions, and the presentation was simple yet inviting!
From fajitas to fish and chips, the menu offers a variety of 'main plates', so there's something to tempt all taste buds!
I ordered the special fried chicken in basket with fries and coleslaw, which was served in a wire chicken; I thought this was so fitting and fantastic presentation!
Michael chose a premium steak served with fries and an added side of french beans - a filling course perfect that he found perfect for an crisp, cool autumn evening.
The 'all day desserts' menu offers an irresistible choice of sweet treats to complete a three course meal; from a simple yet sweet bread and butter pudding to chocoholic's favourite, warm chocolate fudge cake served with vanilla ice cream.
But if you're stomach is struggling to make space for one more course, why not opt for a hot drink to end the evening, my personal favourite being the hot chocolate with toasted marshmallows and white chocolate foam...a cup of heaven.
