ANOTHER FABLED ADVENTURE IS ABOUT TO BEGIN IN LEEDS
Unravelling the enchanted world of mixology and seasonal cuisine, mythical figure, Professor Benedict Pike will soon be unveiling The Lost & Found, launching in the iconic Leeds Club building on Albion Place, Leeds, on 16th February 2018.
The Grade II listed Victorian building has been beautifully restored complete with a bar, restaurant, private boardroom and a secret den even Dorian Gray would be envious of. Decadently dressed with antique brass throughout, eclectic furniture is upholstered in soft velvets, leather and woven textures, evoking a sense of a bygone era.
We’ll let you in on a little secret…those in the know can enjoy a daily dose of desirable discounts in February by visiting www.the-lostandfound.co.uk/leeds-club to reserve:

He’ll be putting on a weird and wonderful array of concoctions and feasts for guests to sample. The first male proprietor, he’ll be following in the footsteps of the three legendary female professors who inspired other The Lost & Found venues, including sister site on Greek Street in Leeds, headed up by Yorkshire ornithologist, Virginia K Stevenson.
Behind the bar, magnificent mixologists will be shaking and stirring a stunning selection of liquid libations, with twists on classics and botanical influences; to comprise a menu split into ‘Lost’ and ‘Found’ serves, as well as a special selection to celebrate the four professors.
Packed with all the vigour yet sweetness of its namesake, signature serve Mr Benedict Pike, is an enticing blend of Coffee-infused Makers Mark, Antica Formula Carpano Vermouth and Xocolatl Mole & Aztec chocolate bitters.
The kitchen will be plating up dishes that perfectly accompany the drinks, with a brand-new Josper grill, adding a delicious smoky flavour to steaks cooked over the 400-degree coals.
Starters include truffle and parmesan arancini and mains such as slow-cooked beef ragu pappardelle, and chipotle and quinoa chilli take centre stage.
Come the weekend, tables will be filled with bottomless brunch diners tucking into staple dishes like Turkish eggs or brown butter pancakes whilst sipping flutes of prosecco and Mimosas, and afternoon tea guests eating bite-size sandwiches and desserts with flowing pots of tea. However you like to start your adventures, be like Professor Benedict Pike and do it with conviction.
