Meat restaurants. You just can’t step foot in Leeds without noticing the proliferation of them over the last few years.
Honestly, sometimes it seems like they’re everywhere. Everyone seems to have an opinion on whether the excess of this sort of joint is a good thing or not. For me, I’m starting to get a bit bored of the concept, although we were recently impressed by Smoke in the Merrion Centre.
There’s no denying the trend, though, no matter your opinion, and last week yet another meat restaurant opened up, this time on Albion Street on a plot that never seems to house a permanent foodie venture.
Stampede will serve the usual American fare – like burgers, ribs, wings – but aims to do it in a fashion more reminiscent of a fast food joint than its rivals in the city. Stampede will also have opening hours suitable for appealing to late night revellers, a sensible move given the bars dotted around that area of town.
Steven Novak is the brains behind the operation and he has plenty of experience behind him in the form of Cattle Grid in the city centre. It remains to be seen whether he can tempt in the foodies of Leeds with another variation on the meat concept restaurant. Watch this space!
