A FEW months ago we told you all about the exciting plans to breathe some life back into Greek Street.

The latest additions to the area include La Rambla tapas restaurant and The Office bar, which opened at the former OK Karaoke venue in recent months.

And just a matter of weeks ago, The Living Room at the top end of Greek Street had a complete make-over, re-opening as a new bar offering called The Liquorist.

But now it’s time for Italian restaurant Gusto to steal the limelight.

The restaurant takes over the former Henry’s Bar at the Pennine House building opposite Prohibition, and is set to open its doors to the public on Thursday, July 2.

City Buzz understands that there are plenty of deals for diners during the opening month, so make sure you check it out soon to make the most of the bargains.

The Gusto company also owns sites in Cookridge, Leeds, as well as 11 other restaurants across the UK – including one in Cookridge, north Leeds, and others in Manchester, Liverpool and Newcastle.

The company was backed last year in a buyout by Palatine Private Equity to help the business roll-out its expansion across the UK. The plans could see five new sites opening within a year, with the aim of building it up to a total of 30 venues.

The restaurant won’t be the last to open on Greek Street though, with the Dakota Hotel and The Alchemist still taking shape.

We’ll give you the gossip about the Gusto opening next week, so keep your eyes peeled here or @leedscitybuzz.
