Enjoy a taste of summer with a new dining menu at Harvey Nichols

Harvey Nichols has launched a new menu at its Briggate store’s fourth floor brasserie which it claims is “a perfect combination of the freshest seasonal ingredients sitting alongside a delicious drinks menu”.

Created by head chef Lee Heptinstall, diners can enjoy an a la carte menu of international dishes, including beef tartare with chimichurri, charred lamb leg with a Greek salad or pan fried halloumi with a courgette and mint puree.

A Sunday menu is also available with a Yorkshire classic of roast sirloin of beef with all the trimmings alongside a pea risotto and grilled mackerel. Both menus include desserts that are impossible to resist with dishes ranging from warm chocolate brownie with white chocolate and raspberry ice cream to a traditional cheese board.

Vegans can savour a fully plant-based menu of gazpacho, Greek salad or linguine with raw ice cream and dairy-free vanilla cheesecake to round things off.

Speaking about the new summer menu, Sally Lackey, general manager at Harvey Nichols, Leeds, said: “Lee has pulled together the most incredible menus that encapsulate everything we love about summer time food. They are fresh, vibrant and full of flavour, transporting you to some of your favourite European holiday destinations.

“The Fourth Floor Brasserie has long been a popular venue for people living locally and beyond and we look forward to inviting diners to try this summers culinary masterpiece.

“As well as a full bar of champagne, cocktails and soft drinks, we also have one of the largest wine selections in the north of England in our Wine Shop. From old world classics to new modern organic wines; we are happy to serve these to diners visiting our Brasserie.”

The store will also see the launch of a new No3 Gin terrace takeover in August with the venues roof terrace offering an array of delicious selection of gin cocktails overlooking the Leeds skyline.

Lackley added: “The roof terrace has been totally transformed and is the perfect spot for enjoying an after work cocktail or catching up with loved ones over the weekend. The décor will add to the summertime ambience and is ideal for soaking up some sunshine and gazing out over the Leeds skyline.

“This summer we’re also offering new cocktail masterclasses hosted by our excellent mixologists. They’re great fun. We’re particularly looking forward to our pride masterclass this August after two years without a pride event due to the pandemic. The atmosphere will be fantastic.”

To mark the launch diners can enjoy a special offer 1st August with three delicious courses for £25, served with a glass of Chandon Garden Spritz made using Chandon’s Mendoza-made Brut and blended with a handcrafted orange-bitter liqueur for the ultimate summer spritz.
