Zed Bar has a new look - Kith and Kin

Zed Bar (by Arc Inspirations) in Chapel Allerton has been a firm favourite for bar drinkers for some years, rarely do you ever hear anyone raving about the food there. Rarely do you hear of people remembering the whole night there.

It was well overdue a make over.

Kith and Kin as it is now known, has gone with an on-trend potting shed theme, with cutesy crockery and local produce and suppliers to boot.

I was invited along to their soft opening to give the chefs and waiting staff a test run before they opened.

Apologies for picture quality, trusty iPhone wasn't being so trusty on this particular night.

For starters R and I shared the Deli board, a mix of meat and cheeses. It wasn't the toppest of notches meat but it was fairly good and the cheese I loved.

Also served with flat breads which probably wasn't needed 

In line with it's other ventures Arc Inspirations has included a 'healthier option' section in Kith and Kin too. R chose from this section the Crossfit Leeds Burger - served with a fried egg, Monterey jack cheese, avocado and bacon and sweet potato wedges. R gave it a rave review.

I had my eye on the above but not wanting to get the same I opted for the steak, served medium rare. The rest of the menu is pub like in options, there are steaks, skewers, burgers and sandwiches. As well as some interesting options such as Thai red curry and prawn risotto too...

The steak was very good as far as pub food standards go, it came served with the knife cut in to it, I didn't do that for affect... which actually meant I had two steak knives in the end as a previous waiter brought one over for me too... maybe R was supposed to have the other for her burger? The chips were okay as far as chips go, nothing too much to rave about. There are better steaks to be had but in this price range in a place which isn't specialising in steak it's a fair option to make.

In addition to a new food menu, they also have a snazzy new cocktail menu with a range of non-alcoholic cocktails too.

PS - all you hangover heads, they do breakfast too.
