A TAPAS restaurant in Leeds city centre is in the running for a top design award.

Pintura, which was created within a disused fire exit and stairwell at Trinity Leeds, is up for best Restaurant and Bar Design at the SBID Awards for its Basque-inspired interior.

Ged Feltham, creative chief executive at Leelex Ltd, which owns the site, said: “We’re thrilled to be nominated, joining some of the world’s best new restaurants.

“To win this award would be the icing on the cake.”

Leelex Ltd also owns Oporto, Neon Cactus, Jake’s and Cielo Blanco in Leeds.
