New York meets the North East

‘There are great burg­ers, but dishes such as beef short rib and an ex­cel­lent Reuben show­case dif­fer­ent sides of the city’s cui­sine’

Food and Travel (UK) - - Arrivals -

The trend for New York-style din­ing is now em­bed­ded in the UK food scene and the lat­est place to chan­nel the loft-apart­ment-and-rooftop vibe is East 59th in Leeds. It’s set at the sum­mit of Vic­to­ria Gate shop­ping cen­tre and fits in per­fectly; the restau­rant’s par­ent com­pany, D&D Lon­don, has in­vested heav­ily in the look and feel, and it shows.

A dark-wood spi­ral stair­case gives way to par­quet floor­ing and some nat­tily crafted street art, with a Statue of Lib­erty at the en­trance (should you need re­mind­ing of the style they’re go­ing for). The menu con­tin­ues the theme: nachos are ideal to crunch while pe­rus­ing the menu, while chicken wings are a stel­lar in­car­na­tion of the Big Ap­ple’s favourite bar snack. There are great burg­ers and hot dogs too, but dishes such as slow-braised beef short rib with mus­tard sauce and an ex­cel­lent pas­trami Reuben show­case dif­fer­ent sides of the city’s cui­sine. The real boon is the roof ter­race: ar­guably the best spot in town for sun­downer drinks. east­59th.co.uk
