It would be fair to say that we here at Roomzzz like our food and that here in Leeds we are more than spoilt for choice of amazing places to dine. This weekend sees the launch of another gastronomic delight… mixing fine dining with a slice of celebrity as James Martin – star of Saturday Kitchen – opens his new restaurant in the city.
The Leeds Kitchen, will be situated at the Alea Casino in Clarence Dock, is set to open to the public on Saturday 9 April 2011, and will provide a fine dining experience in stunning surroundings.
James as you may know is a devout Yorkshireman having recently had the honour of being made a Yorkshire Patron, James’ new venture has already contributed to the City of Leeds employment drive, with over 25 experienced chefs and front-of-house staff recruited in preparation for opening and all suppliers for the venture are also locally sourced.
Expressing his excitement, James Martin said: “I am delighted to be opening my new restaurant at Alea Casino, Leeds.
“It’s a stunning venue and has everything under one roof. What better way to put the icing on the cake – excuse the pun – by launching my new venture there!
“As I’m a born and bred Yorkshireman, I have been searching for the right location for some time and Alea and Clarence Dock have everything I am looking for. I can’t wait to open shortly, and deliver – along with my team – some of the best of British cooking Leeds has experienced.”
Quite frankly we can’t wait… we’ll be joining the first to sample the new restaurant and are practically drooling in anticipation!

We certainly know what floats our boat… personally it’s the thought of having a super cool mac to play with and a lovely big pocket sprung mattress to you know… sleep on… !
Here’s what a couple of guests have said make Roomzzz Aparthotel in Leeds and Manchester their fav place to stay.
Gorgeous. Spot on. The apartments are bigger than a hotel room. More light, more space, more furniture and a kitchen. Friendly reception staff.
Well impressed, this place surpassed my best expectations, quirky decor etc. I attended a conference this week in Leeds and WOW, both myself and my colleague were extremely pleased with the comfort, decor and provision at Roomzzz. Stay here, I’m specifically looking to attend some more work functions in Leeds so that I can!
Fantastic place to stay. Very modern stylish and really well appointed. Everything was sparkling clean. Love the concept of short stay self catering serviced apartments.
