To celebrate the outstanding diversity of the city’s thriving food scene the inaugural Eat Leeds Restaurant Week, takes place from 14 to 20 August

More than 70 of the finest eateries across the city have signed up to take part in the first event of its kind in Leeds. Each restaurant has crafted a special menu of 2 or 3 courses for diners to enjoy at the cost of either £10 or £15, providing the perfect opportunity to try somewhere new.

From recent additions to long-standing Leeds favourites, there’s a huge choice for diners to get their teeth into during Eat Leeds Restaurant Week. Marco’s Italian, recently unveiled by Marco Pierre White, was the first restaurant to sign up and since then the list has just kept on growing. Other participants that are new to Leeds include Issho and East 59th, two stunning restaurants in the £165m Victoria Gate centre; both will be showcasing fabulous new menus to be enjoyed from the rooftop terrace with amazing views across Leeds as the backdrop. Also among the staggering variety of restaurants taking part is Bundobust, serving up immensely popular vegetarian Indian street food, Red’s True Barbecue, a firm Leeds favourite and Chaophraya.

Andrew Cooper, Chief Executive at LeedsBID (Leeds Business Improvement District), said:

“The food and drink industry in Leeds is rapidly evolving into one of the city’s most innovative and respected sectors.

LeedsBID is delighted and proud to create the first Eat Leeds Restaurant Week, which will help to raise the profile of Leeds as one of the UK’s top food and drink destinations. It’s a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the diverse and exciting range of eateries that Leeds has to offer; the amazing range and quality of the menus on offer will give residents and visitors to the city a chance to enjoy old favourites or to sample something completely new.”


Eat Leeds is a non-profit organisation of key restaurants, cafes and bars within Leeds city centre. This inaugural event will initiate future collaborative activities, bringing the best of the city’s culinary scene for the public’s enjoyment.
