A Parisian-style brasserie which will open a branch in Leeds later this month has invested £1m into the venture and created 40 jobs.
Côte Brasserie is moving into the former Mamas & Papas store in the Trinity Shopping Centre and is set to open on Monday July 24.
French food fans can look forward to classic gallic delicacies such as steak tartare, cassoulet de Toulouse and moules frites alongside a range of steaks, salads and fish dishes in a menu which will change monthly.
It sees the launch of another first for Leeds as it is the first offering from the Côte brand in the city.
Côte Restaurants CEO Alex Scrimgeour said they were keen to open in Leeds due to the city’s thriving mix of food and retail.
He said: “Leeds is such a busy, thriving city and we are delighted to be opening right in the heart of town.
“Trinity Leeds has a great reputation for offering a diverse range of food and drink options, we look forward to adding our blend of quality French food, friendly professional service and great value to the mix.”
The new 180 cover restaurant takes up 4,772 sq ft and overlooks the atrium.
