Celebrity chef James Martin has announced that his new UK restaurant, The Leeds Kitchen, will officially open to the public on Saturday 9th April 2011.
The new restaurant will be at the Alea Casino in Clarence Dock, which is in the trendy waterfront area of Leeds and promises a menu that will feature the best of British cuisine with a twist.
The restaurant has been transformed into a beautiful, contemporary fine dining space by Yorkshire based Interior Designer Carolyn Parker, who has worked with her daughter Abby and local suppliers to create a warm and open design, incorporating some unique pieces reflecting James’ personality.
“Leeds and Yorkshire is the perfect place for me to open my new restaurant,” explains James Martin.
“With a great young team, both in the kitchen and front of house, we are really looking forward to the opening. Being a Yorkshire man, it’s not hard to understand why the produce is so good in the area and we are going to use it to maximum affect on the menu.”
