Opening in Leeds next month, the restaurant will be located on South Parade and follows a £700,000 investment. It joins the group’s restaurants in Lytham, Chester, and Stockton Heath.
The restaurant will serve a Greek menu with a focus on sustainability, with 40% of dishes being plant based. Menu items will include Mediterranean favourites such as gyros, lamb kleftico, moussaka, kebabs and dolmades as well as some lesser-known Greek dishes such as Greek cured beef sausage honey pastourma.
“We’re so excited to bring our modern Greek food experience to Leeds. Thirty new staff members will ensure we settle into our new Leeds home nicely, alongside our long-standing, passionate team,” says executive chef Aaron Thomas.
“Greece is a part of the Med renowned for its back-to-basics focus on the best tastes, served up with simplicity and warmth. Combining this with our focus on stylish decor and relaxed vibes, we think Olive Tree Brasserie is the place to be.”
Olive Tree Brasserie was founded by Dean Wilson in St Annes in 2007, with a second opening in Preston in 2014, both of which have since closed. A third Olive Tree Brasserie restaurant opened in Chester in July 2016 followed by venues in Stockton Heath and Lytham in 2018.
