Situated in one of Leeds’ most historic landmark buildings, making it easily identifiable for visitors to the city, is restaurant Piazza by Anthony. Located just up the road from the City Exchange shopping plaza it is perfect for those looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, for business meetings that are sure to impress any client, a special celebration or just a quick lunch.
Occupying 13,200 square feet of the Corn Exchange, the Piazza is vast and absolutely breath-taking. Incorporating a 118 seat restaurant in the central domed expanse of this magnificent building, dining here is a real treat. Surrounding the dining area are top-quality, independently run businesses including a bakery, patisserie and chocolaterie serving the very best in handmade artisan bread, pastries, cakes and confectionary. Each of the shops supply the Piazza with fresh ingredients daily which are used in the creation of the stunning European dishes you will find on the menu.
As well as the main dining room, the Piazza offers The Champagne Bar; an area perfect for enjoying a glass or two of bubbly whilst admiring the impressive Wine Vault after a long day at work or shopping. The charismatic bar team are fully versed in the top-class wines and Champagnes on offer but also specialise in making your favourite cocktails, from minty fresh Mojito’s to Bellini’s. For business, The Hennessy Conference Suit with its frameless glazed frontage is the ideal area for a business meeting, private dining event or team building exercise. Split into 3, the room has a casual sofa style seating area, a meeting or training room and a conference style seating area with access to the latest technology.
The Piazza by Anthony should not just be used as a venue for a special occasion, though it is perfectly suited to that role. For those looking for a sophisticated day-time meal guests are encouraged to enjoy brunch or afternoon tea under the awe-inspiring glass dome, or to relax at lunch time and peruse the fantastic selection of traditional and modern British dishes on offer. You can expect to find dishes such as the 8oz Cumberland sausage ring served with creamy mash and pearl onion gravy; spiced crab gnocchi with roast artichoke hearts; and gourmet chicken and mushroom pie served with creamed potatoes.
Whatever the occasion, the Piazza by Anthony has a menu or a room for you. Despite the grandeur, the menus are very reasonably priced and offer dishes that will tempt the adventurous and satisfy even the fussiest of diner. Due to the popularity of this venue, booking a table is highly recommended.
