Olive Tree Brasserie open now, bringing vibrant Greek food to Leeds city centre!
11th December 2023
The Olive Tree Brasserie Leeds is now open, bringing their modern take on Greek cuisine to the city. The Leeds restaurant will be the fourth Olive Tree joining branches in Lytham, Chester, and Stockton Heath, with the brand planning further expansion across the North.
The new Leeds venue will mark a new iteration of Olive Trees vision, following a £700,000 investment on South Parade. The interiors are typically, modern, and highly Instagrammable, but the Leeds launch channels a slightly new direction and transporting you to the perfect Mediterranean destination.
Take a first look at the light-drenched interiors, decorated sparingly with, downlighting, raw wood, plaster walls, and plentiful foliage continue to conjure the relaxed feel of the venue. It transforms this traditional South Parade assurance building (previously Stockdale’s) into something more – It’s stylish, bohemian, and the perfect backdrop to a glorious brunch, lunch, or dinner.
On weekends, Olive Tree will welcome their resident DJ’s playing melodic, soulful sounds whilst you enjoy dining and drinks from their extensive, creative cocktail menu. As well as both table and booth seating, The Olive Tree will also offer a private dining area for special occasions, meetings and corporate events, a perfect place for your Christmas or New Year’s eve party.
Greek Gastronomy inspired by the modern Mediterranean.
The food has Greek inspiration at its core, with a focus on sustainability and an extensive range of veggie and vegan options with 40% of their menu being plant-based. They also prioritise local sourcing and quality ingredients – alongside fantastic service.
Meze and Main Course items from their A La Carte menu include Mediterranean favourites such as the popular Lamb Kleftico, Moussaka, and Dolmades, but also include lesser-known Greek dishes such as Honey Pastourma (a Greek cured beef sausage).
The Olive Tree Bottomless Brunch is the perfect opportunity to soak up the weekend vibes and takes place every Saturday between 11am and 4pm – guests can indulge in 90 minutes of unlimited food and drink for just £37.95.
From Monday to Friday between 11am and 4pm, the Meze Lunch offers exceptional value with any three meze dishes for just £14.95. Highlights of the menu include the truffle houmous, harissa falafel, spinach and feta arancini, and meatballs. The Olive Tree’s take on the classic kebab and gyros are also available.
Brilliant bar combining traditional and modern
The bar offers up the perfect mix of traditional and modern drinks and includes some excellent Greek beers, coffee, and rare spirits such as Mastiha. The highly skilled team have crafted a bespoke cocktail menu which includes their mouthwatering Mastiha Mojito (a spirit created from the resin of an evergreen Greek tree), the Olive Tree Espressotini (featuring the warming nuttiness of hazelnut liqueur), and the Cranberry & Clementine Sangria (the Spanish classic, given a Greek twist – think red wine and Metaxa spiked with the flavours of cranberry, orange, rosemary, and blueberry).
Executive chef Aaron Thomas said:“We’re so excited to open this week, it’s been a longtime coming with planning and fantastic to see our vision come to life. The restaurant itself is beautiful – we’ve created the perfect setting for guests to enjoy our wonderful food and drink. The feedback and response so far has been incredible and we can’t wait to welcome everyone to experience Olive Tree Leeds.”
