The Leeds Kitchen

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!

Top Tips for April Fools…

If you’ve been tuning into our Facebook pages for Leeds and Manchester Roomzzz this week you will have noticed that we’re running a competition for you to win a night on us in Leeds City West this Friday the 1st April…. and what do you have to do to win this? Well simply share on Facebook your favourite April Fools prank… that’s it… all we ask… so to give you inspiration we have been trawling the internet:-

  • Find a box about the size of a cake. Then cover it with frosting, making it look like a cake. Then put it out in the office kitchen, or wherever people leave free food. Sit back as one of your co-workers tries to cut a slice.

  • This is the most classic and simple prank ever. Balance a small disposable cup of water on the top of a partially open door. Then wait for the splash!
  • Switch the “Pull” and “Push” signs on a set of doors. Watch as people get confused trying to open the doors.

  • Stick a post-it note under your friend’s mouse so that the paper leaf covers the mouse ball – the mouse will no longer work! Align so that the sticky part of the note doesn’t touch the ball. Costs next to nothing to do, and doesn’t cause any damage.

  • Glue eggs to the carton and beg for eggs in the morning. When the victim gets them the eggs break!

  • When your victim’s asleep sneak into their room and draw eyebrows and a moustache on their face, make sure to be their when they look in the mirror.

  • Use a pin to make a few small holes in a plastic disposable cup. Offer a drink to the victim and watch while the liquid dribbles out onto their shirt.
  • Wait until your victim is in the kitchen. Come in and start filling a bucket with water (tell them you’re washing the car or something). Only instead of actually filling the bucket, just pretend. Lift the bucket with both hands, acting like it’s heavy and filled with water. Take a couple of steps in the victim’s direction and suddenly “trip” and aim the bucket right toward them. They’ll duck thinking they’re getting splashed!

Remember these are merely suggestions (not instructions) – we simply want to get your creative juices flowing for our competition. Whatever you do on Friday this year to get a giggle out of your nearest and dearest make sure you share your past or favourites with us on Facebook and win a night’s stay in Leeds!

It’s Friday Favourites #2! Your Chance to Win!

You know that saying… ‘you’ve got to be in it to win it’… – annoyingly true.

So generally a rule of thumb is if there is a competition you like the sound of – get entering it… as you never know… ‘it could be you’…to quote another well known saying.

So last week we pipe up with a little Friday treat… we named it imaginatively ‘Friday Favourites’. The gist is we say it’s Friday and as a treat for our fans and followers you get the chance to tell us what your fav things are about staying in our luxury aparthotel in Leeds and Manchester, post it on Facebook and wait till Wednesday of the following week to find out if you’ve only gone and won.

Won what? A Friday night stay on the house of course – in Leeds. Which offers a multitude of exciting weekend options… and plus you even get the chance to stay on the house Friday and you might even like to book an extra night on the Saturday with a nice discount (of course) we look after our winners and guests – and make it into a whole luxury weekender.

So do we have winners? Of course we do… AND we decided to have 3 winners not 1. Here are the winning comments…
