Some of the city’s newcomers are also lined up to take part, including Cosy Club, Smokin’ Bar and Kitchen and Greek Street’s latest addition, Neighbourhood.
The city’s thriving suburb restaurants are joining in, including Pinche Pinche and Sukhothai in Chapel Allerton, Salvo’s in Headingley and Dill and Bay in Rothwell. Not forgetting some great new additions from Trinity Kitchen too, with the likes of Rola Wala, Let’s Go Mexicana, Tortilla and PizzaLuxe serving up sensational street food in the heart of the city.
New for the second Eat Leeds Restaurant Week are ‘Exclusively Eat Leeds’ fine-dining experiences, with several restaurants, including Crafthouse and Issho, offering a limited-edition menu for £30 a head. Including wine pairings and six course tasting menus, it’s set to be one of the event’s highlights.
Over 9,000 diners enjoyed a meal out during the first ever Eat Leeds Restaurant Week in August 2017, launched in association with LeedsBID (Leeds Business Improvement District), uniting the city’s gastronomy scene for the public’s enjoyment.
During the week, over 70per cent of diners took the opportunity to discover a restaurant they had never visited before.
Cantina, the city’s first vegan restaurant, celebrated its busiest day on record and even stayed open after hours to cater for happy customers.
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.”
The IFDA’s Anne-Marie Gallagher said: "The IFDA continues its support of the independents, by helping them to join in with the success of Eat Leeds and ensuring that the celebration of the Leeds outstanding food and drink scene includes some fine independent outlets. Food and drinks businesses, large and small, can take advantage of this opportunity to be showcased as one of the city's best eateries."
