From Mexican to Italian, Thai, Indian, Greek and Japanese to classic British cooking, from brunch to after work nibbles and fine dining - the Leeds food offering has never been more varied and now it is about to get a side order of savings.

Eat Leeds Restaurant Week is back on the menu for 2018 and has teamed up with 100 different restaurants across the city that have created special menus, offering two or three courses for the cost of either £10 or £15.

There’s the return of some firm favourites from last year such as Zaap, Aagrah, Iberica, Jamie’s Italian and The Tetley while some of the city’s newcomers are also lined up to take part, including Cosy Club, Smokin’ and Neighbourhood.

Thriving suburb restaurants are joining in, including Pinche Pinche, Salvo’s and Dill and Bay in Rothwell. Street food also gets a look in from Rola Wala, Let’s Go Mexicana, Tortilla and PizzaLuxe.

New for this second year are ‘Exclusively Eat Leeds’ fine-dining experiences.

The likes of Crafthouse and Issho, are offering a limited-edition menu for £30 each including wine pairings and six course tasting menus.

Funded by Leeds BID the feast starts February 19-25.

Andrew Cooper, Chief Executive at LeedsBID said: “Eat Leeds Restaurant Week showcases the city’s fantastic food offer from cafes, high street names, independents and premium dining - all of which contribute to the overall experience.

“We want to encourage people to eat out in Leeds and sample all that is available.”
