We went for lunch at Rustique, near Clifford's Tower. It's a little French place which is definitely worth a visit. They do a great value 2/3 course set menu at lunch for £11.95/£13.95.
For starters we had the Basque egg and the crab cakes. Both were really well flavoured: the crab cakes had a high fish content and the Basque egg is baked egg with Toulouse sausage, new potatoes, paprika and peas.
Mains were Jarret du Porc, which is a slowly braised pork shank, and pan fried calves liver. This was my first ever tasting of calves liver and it was really tasty, but rich. That combined with the crab cake was a bit too much for me at lunch time, and even Joe couldn't finish all the pork (pathetic!). You also get no vegetables with the main courses, but I couldn't have fit them in anyway so wasn't bothered!
I'd recommend that you give Rustique a try. It's a little bit of rural France in Yorkshire.
