A brand new vegan bar, restaurant and arts space is opening inside a former dry cleaner on Kirkstall road.
Located near to the viaduct and the cinema complex, it will also be familiar to locals as an old fireplace shop. But now, something new and exciting is moving in.
Called Meat is Dead, the new eatery will be open all day serving up ‘junk free’ plant-based goodies.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, its menu is currently under wraps – but a commitment to serving food that ‘nourishes’ has us expecting big (and wholesome) things.
Whilst details of the menus are still to be released, we’ve had it direct from the source that there’ll be plenty of “salady goodness” and hearty roast dinners alongside a full lunch, brunch and dinner offering.
And behind the bar, there’ll be a host of craft beers alongside some tasty cocktails and wholesome soft drinks.
From what has been teased out so far, though, this new opening is going to be about so much more than just delicious food and drink.
Leeds has an exciting arts scene and Meat Is Dead is looking to champion local creators in the space.
The venue itself is simply huge, with a recent video shared to the restaurant’s Facebook page showing reams of space inside and what looks like a decent covered outside terrace area, too.
Whilst it’s still very much a building site right now, those behind it plan to open at the end of May – so we don’t expect we’ll have to wait too much longer to find out more.
Find Meat is Dead at 231-239 Kirkstall Road and follow them on their Facebook page for more updates.
