Primo Ristorante - Leeds

Another groupon deal and another restaurant not previously on my radar introduced to me.

This deal offered a pizza and a drink for two for a small price (I can't remember the exact price as I bought it months ago and left it to the last minute to use it - plus it's useless information to you anyway because it is no longer on living social/groupon). 

Primo Ristorante is not to be confused with Primos hotdogs in the Corn Exchange. This Primos is an Italian/Mediterranean restaurant located near Wellington street along the same square edge as Lazy Lounge. Their doors open at lunch times, closing in the 'in                                                            between' and re opening for evening meals.

Old Amsterdam Cheese and Wine Event hosted by Sam's Chop House

Last week I was invited to attend a wine and cheese event presented by Old Amsterdam hosted by Sam's Chop House. Sam's Chop House kindly provided the wine and most graciously their fabulous sommelier George.

An email was sent to me prior to the event by the PR Company which detailed the guest list, I noted that there was no familiar names? None of the usual Leeds food bloggers appeared to be attending?! Due to this when TDS and I arrived I had no idea who was a blogger and who was a PR girl/Old Amsterdam rep/Sam's Chop House employee. It soon became clear that we were the first 'bloggers' to arrive and quickly took a pew whilst ordering an ice cold drink (remember how sweltering hot it was on Wednesday 19th June - perhaps just a distant memory now?).

Giraffe, Breakfast - Greek Street,Leeds

This establishment has now closed on Greek Street but you can still find them in the Trinity Centre. 

I haven't found too many places in Leeds to get a really good breakfast, but I had walked past Giraffe a few times before work and noticed the signs displayed advertising breakfast. So when the decision came to having breakfast last bank holiday Giraffe sprang to mind.

The place was almost empty with just one other couple sat at a table at the back.  We were greeted and seated almost straight away and treated to a table beside the window.

Miller and Carter - Leeds City Centre


Miller and Carter is a small group of steak-house restaurants in the UK. Previously the only restaurant in Leeds was the one situated in Garforth (see my previous post here) but it would appear they are expanding with the appearance of a new restaurant located on The Headrow on the outside of The Light. 

I was invited along to try out their new restaurant (I'm presuming my previous post aided this). I was happy to oblige as I always like to see how restaurants have progressed especially during expansion - as far too often quality can be substituted for mass...

The table was booked for 7.30pm on a Thursday night and I took TDS along for the ride.
