    Thomas: ... and as a result, the price of minibus hire in the locality has increased dramatically over the last year.
    Jean-Luc: That's interesting. Thomas, thank you, but I think it's probably best left for another meeting.

    Is it gramatically correct to use "left" here? Can I say "best to leave"?

    Thank you.

    Yes it's fine. You could also say "I think it's probably best to leave that for another meeting".
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
