Last Sunday evening saw a full Troffer complement attend the annual Harvey Nichols Carol Evening in the Victoria Quarter in Leeds.
It was a big hit last year, so we decided to repeat the event this year and it really is special. This time of the year, the VQ does look fab and by candlelight it looks even better. After a pre dinner pint in Whitelocks (Ilkley Best, from The Ilkley Brewery) we headed over to Harvey Nicks.
The VQ is closed to the general public and a ‘professional choir’ do their bit whilst a light supper is served of breads, broth and mince pies. All very pleasant. I was glad to see the restaurant in the arcade full of fellow revellers enjoying the atmospheric evening.
The food was of the high standard we’ve come to expect from the HN restaurant – and although this wasn’t strictly a ‘full’ dinner, the chicken broth was excellent. Harvey Nicks Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Malbec were sampled – happy days.
I tried a new feature on my iphone that stitches together images to create a panorama – I thought this might be a nice way to get the atmosphere of a lovely evening across.
