The Man Behind The Curtain
“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!” the Wizard of Oz shouted into his microphone as Toto the dog discovered the not-so-wonderful man of magic was a fraud. It’s a not-so-subtle hint that chef Michael O’Hare wants you to pay all your attention to what’s on his incredible plates than to what’s in the kitchen at his restaurant, above an unassuming clothes shop in Leeds. What can you expect? The dishes are more like striking works of art than edibles, and not in that pretty, delicate, nouvelle cuisine style – these are bold, often black and white dishes that pack a serious visual and flavour punch. O’Hare won his first Michelin star in 2015.
