Wagyu Bar and Grill was established in early 2019 with the sole intention of developing restaurants throughout Yorkshire to share their outstanding beef products with the local community.
Set over two floors, the new Leeds venue will include a cafe on the ground floor*, opening on Monday, 29th July, and a first floor serving up dishes such as Chateaubriand and T Bone which opens in August.
Sourced and reared at an established farm in Warter near Pocklington Wagyu Bar and Grill serves some of the finest steaks in a true gate to plate restaurant concept.
The family-run restaurant, which already has venues in York and Harrogate, will bring the famous Japanese beef to the heart of Leeds, giving diners a chance to experience the restaurant’s unique ‘gate to plate’ concept.
The varied and extensive menu will include premium quality produce from prime steaks to award-winning beef short ribs and slow-cooked beef cheeks.
Warrendale Farms in Pocklington partnered with Adrian Hunter, to bring the restaurant project to market in March. Originating from Japan, Wagyu is known as the world’s most exclusive beef with its distinctive marbling creating exceptional taste and quality.
Jo Coburn, General Manager at Victoria Leeds, said: “Bringing Wagyu Bar and Grill - an independently-run restaurant which serves up award-winning dishes - to Victoria Leeds is an exciting opportunity for us. It’s a great addition to our line-up and means we can continue to showcase the very best the region has to offer, making us a hub for great food in the city for both residents and visitors alike.”
Adrian Hunter, Restaurant Project Manager of Wagyu Bar & Grill, said: “We are delighted to have secured such an outstanding restaurant site within the exclusive Victoria Gate Development. Our product is unique and one of the finest around and we look forward to welcoming our customers very soon. We would like to thank all of the team at Victoria Gate for their tireless dedication to our partnership and very much look forward to working with them all in the future.”
