Exciting times are on the menu for one of the hottest new names on the Leeds dining scene.
The award-winning Dish restaurant is leaving its home on Great George Street in the city centre.
And its destination will be a familiar one for aficionados of Leeds’s food and drink trade.
Dish is relocating to the building on Boar Lane that was until recently occupied by Anthony’s restaurant.
Anthony’s made the short hop to the Corn Exchange in March but closed three months later.
Dish’s owner and head chef Eddy Nuttall said: “We are relocating to enable us to have bigger premises to serve our growing band of customers. We are creating a stunning dining room on the lower level and introducing a fabulous cocktail bar on the ground floor.”
The ‘new’ Dish will open its doors to its first diners in the week beginning Monday, September 2.
Mr Nuttall today also confirmed he was keeping on the restaurant’s original premises on Great George Street.
They are being rebranded as Harry’s Bar & Brasserie, which is aiming to serve up “the best in cocktails, wines, food and live music” and launches next Friday, August 30.
Dish was named best newcomer at the Yorkshire Evening Post’s prestigious Oliver awards in March.
The competition’s judges said: “In the space of a few months this new dining spot has become the talk of Leeds.”
They also said: “The menus they compose and the quality of food they deliver is first rate”.
* Anthony’s was part of a Leeds-based gastronomic empire built up by chef Anthony Flinn over the course of nearly a decade.
Its move to the Corn Exchange saw it joining two more of Mr Flinn’s eateries, Piazza by Anthony and Rib Shakk.
All three restaurants closed unexpectedly in March along with Anthony’s Patisserie, which was in the Victoria Quarter.
