Sample some of the latest eateries and bars opening their doors across Leeds.
After making its mark in Leeds city centre, Neopolitan pizza chain, Rudy’s, has branched out into Chapel Allerton serving its familiar favourites including Marinara, Margherita, and Calabrese. Made fresh each day using the finest Caputo “00” flour, the pizza dough is left overnight to ferment to achieve a perfectly crisp base. Authentic ingredients are also used behind the pizza toppings, including imported San Marzano tomatoes and creamy Fior di Latte mozzarella.
Cut & Craft
Brushed velvet chairs, golden chandeliers, and marbled flooring make up the luxurious 1920s décor inside the much-anticipated Cut & Craft fine dining restaurant, all set within the city centre’s Victoria Quarter. A strong reputation for delivering top quality food in the brand’s original York restaurant means visitors can have high expectations while choosing between the harissa chicken salad, pan roasted sea bass, or signature 10 oz flat iron steak, followed by a refreshing liqueur coffee.
Leeds Arena Quarter’s latest eatery gives visitors an edgy, punk-inspired take on classic fried chicken while offering a prime location outside the First Direct Arena for a pre-gig snack. Rock Chick Chipotle, BBQ Bones, and Skulldive Herb are some of the weird and wonderful treats up for grabs to test your spice tolerance combining fresh ingredients to produce unique flavours, paired with a rotating roster of craft beers, cocktails, and tequila flights.
The Ivy Asia
Prestigious luxury chain, The Ivy, has launched its latest venue paying homage to Eastern opulence, where luxurious fabrics, semi-precious stones, and theatrical decor transport visitors to authentic Asia. Rich and varied dishes represent each of the diverse cultures spanning the continent, including crispy duck salad and massaman curries, while the flamed wagyu beef tops the menu highlights complete with ponzu and black truffle, steamed edamame, and matcha salt.
After a short stint serving hot brews from their upcycled horse trailer found across the parks of North Leeds, the barista couple behind Humbl Coffee have now launched their first speciality shop and work space with a keen focus on sustainability, local arts, and community spirit. Freshly made coffees, teas, and baked goods take up the no-fuss menu, while younger visitors can take part in the shop’s regular art competitions for a chance to win gift shop vouchers, extra hot chocolate, milk shakes and a sweet treat on the house!
