Another Closure

Sun 29 March 2009

A quick note that yet another Leeds' restaurant has closed its doors. Room, on Boar Lane, has shut up shop. Room was part of a chain (that started in Leeds) and it was the parent company that went into administration. The Chester, Lincoln and Manchester restaurants remain open, as do the Grille restaurants in Chester, Harrogate and Lincoln (based on what's on the website at the moment).

During the week I had received an email informing me that the Room Wine Club has now moved to the Lounge on Merrion Street. The first event for this year is 31 March (yes, that's THIS Tuesday) and the focus will be on Italian wines (dubbed 'Tip to Toe' as the tasting ranges from Trentino-Alto Adige through to Sicily). The event costs £30 for which you taste 6 wines and have 6 food pairings. I went to one of these evenings back in 2007 and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I received the email on Thursday so if you're lucky, places will still be available.

Tomorrow, rather than gloom and doom, we bring you food from what must be Leeds' newest restaurant: Mumtaz, at Clarence Dock.

There seems to have been quite a number of closures in Leeds in recent weeks. Millrace, Ellington, Felicini, Larocca, Floridita as well as Room. What about keeping an up to date list for followers to report others? Barry

Good idea, Barry - I'll take a look at sorting that out tomorrow!
