🗞️ Flat Iron affordable steaks coming to Leeds
Leeds is set to welcome a brand new restaurant to its ever growing arsenal of eateries, and it’s no other than Flat Iron. The steak restaurant, set to open on the corner of Albion Place and Lands Lane, will be the first of its kind to open in the North of England, as the team continues its expansion beyond the capital.
Flat Iron is set to open a two floor, 110 cover restaurant in the heart of Leeds, where it’ll be conveniently nestled beside the Leeds Trinity shopping centre. Taking over the former Church Institute, the restaurant will be housed in a stunning slither of Leeds Heritage, adding to the growing excitement surrounding the launch.
The Flat Iron family is continually celebrated for their quality offering and affordable pricing, adopting the mantra of making great steak accessible for everyone. With great quality and fantastic prices, the restaurant will be a fantastic addition to the city, offering delicious food without breaking the bank. So, what can we expect to see on the menu?
The menu is led by the signature Flat Iron Steak; meticulously seam-butchered from the shoulder, the steak is tender, juicy and full of flavour. The menu also boasts an array of sides, including truffled macaroni cheese, crispy bone marrow garlic mash and homemade beef dripping chips.
Leeds diners can also take their pick from the drinks menu, consisting of a curated selection of wine, cocktails and local draught beers. The team have their very own Flat Iron Malbec on offer, expertly blended using grapes grown in the Limoux area of the Languedoc in southern France.
Though this will mark the first Flat Iron restaurant to open in the North, the team have had roots in the North for over 10 years, with their own herd of cattle which has been reared under the watchful eye of third-generation beef farmer, Charles Ashbridge. Nestled in the hills above Sutton Bank in Thirsk, the Flat Iron herd thrive on luscious pastures, homemade hay, rolled barley, molasses and nuts. The Flat Iron herd beef features on the menu in their iconic Bearnaise Cheeseburger.
When asked about the opening, Flat Iron’s Head of Beef, Fred Smith says “Yorkshire is the home of our Flat Iron herd, so it felt only natural to open a Flat Iron in Leeds with our very own beef just a few miles away. We’re really looking forward to bringing great steak to the North and welcome new guests to the Flat Iron family.”
The launch will mark an exciting moment for both the Flat Iron team and city of Leeds. With mouth watering dishes at fabulous prices, we can’t wait to taste the menu. Flat Iron is set to open in Leeds at the end of November, so who will be joining you there?
