Review on Design House

Set on the ground floor of the dazzling Dean Clough Arts and Business Centre complex, this ultra-modern brasserie looks the part, with its steel, etched glass and furniture by Phillipe Starck.

Dishes are gleaned from all over the world, so you can expect to find ideas from Europe, the Middle East and the Orient all jostling for position on the lively dinner menu. Starters ranging from confit of duck with wilted Asian greens, soy and honey dressing to seared scallops with a crab tian, pimento and herb salsa could be followed by slow-braised lamb kleftiko, blackened Cajun chicken or pan-fried fillet of sea bass with bouillabaisse sauce and fennel confit.

Added to this are pastas and vegetarian dishes such as leek and cheese bread-and-butter pudding with sauté garlic mushrooms, while desserts could range from spiced date and walnut cake with caramel sauce to blackberry and white chocolate iced soufflé.
