As part of the preparation for the Leeds Loves Food festival later on this summer (1st to 4th July, to be exact), ten of the city’s restaurants are offering ‘starters for 10p’ on Saturday 8th May.
Think of it as a taster day for the main festival.
The restaurants involved are The Angel’s Share, Bretts, Casa Mia Grande, Casa Mia Millennium, Lounge Bar & Grill, The Mustard Pot, Neon Cactus, Normans, Pomegranate Organics etc. and Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa.
My pick of that bunch would probably be Normans for some excellent southeast Asian food in a bar so hip it doesn’t need a sign.
There’s some printing off of vouchers and reading of terms and conditions to be done here.
The Leeds Loves Food festival is the result of the combined might of Marketing Leeds, Leeds City Centre Management, Leeds City Council’s events team and the Leeds Restaurant Association. A calendar of events is shaping up well, including cookery demonstrations, food masterclasses, sampling and plenty of promotions and special offers.
Cath Follin, City Centre Manager said: “We want residents of and visitors to Leeds to get into the Leeds Loves Food festival spirit early, and this is a great way of promoting the restaurants involved and helping people to enjoy good food in the city without having to spend a fortune! We hope that food lovers will take advantage of these great offers and take the time to find out about what’s in store for the festival in July.”
Leeds has a huge wealth of cooking talent and a vibrant and excellent restaurant scene.
