Five New Restaurants to Try in Yorkshire
These are the new foodie hotspots you need to know
This May you’ll find us at Sheffield’s latest rooftop cocktail bar, Kelu (the Sardinian word for sky). Inside Kelham Island’s stylish shipping container, Krynkl, Kelu offers a range of appetisers and sharing dishes, as well as expertly crafted cocktails, carefully selected wines and spirits. Expect classic cocktails plus plenty of their own creations – we love the sound of the Perdido in Mexico, a tequila-based cocktail with mango, sesame, lemongrass and ginger cordial.
SMOKE AND FLAMES
Masham’s Where There’s Smoke sees Jon Atashroo creating exciting dishes using local produce cooked over coals and embers. Despite only opening the restaurant last year, Jon and his team have established a strong reputation for delicious food and fine wines, and have already been recognised in the Michelin Guide. Expect the likes of pheasant and pork terrine, smoked cod and pumpkin cake on the evolving set menu.
BANK ON IT
This May The Tommy Banks Group will be opening the doors to their latest venue, The Abbey Inn, a family-friendly pub in North Yorkshire. Just down the road from their Michelin-starred restaurant The Black Swan at Oldstead, the pub will showcase the hyper-local, sustainable and ethically-focused food we’d expect from Tommy and his team.
BEST OF BRITISH
The long awaited opening of the all-new York Minster Refectory restaurant is here. The all-day brasserie-style restaurant at Minster Yard will be overseen by restaurateur Andrew Pern and executive head chef Joshua Brimmell. Seasonal British dishes made with local ingredients will be served throughout the day. We recommend taking a seat for breakfast and tucking into North Sea lobster Benedict, or stopping by for lunch for their English asparagus topped with pickled quail eggs.
HOST WITH THE MOST
Leeds’ biggest outdoor venue is back for spring and summer. Chow Down in Temple Arches will once again be hosting a range of food and drink events, live music and entertainment. From battle of the burger to Leeds’ indie food festival, as well as taco and tequila and Sunday brunch clubs, there are plenty of events to get your teeth stuck into. Keep an eye on their socials for more information.
