INTRODUCING THE NEW LUNCH MENU AT DAKOTA DELUXE
WE MET UP WITH THEIR HEAD CHEF TO FIND OUT WHAT TO EXPECT
Dakota Deluxe as one of Leeds’ premium venues, situated right in the heart of the city, the buzz about Dakota Deluxe Leeds has been unavoidable. 
With polished rooms, an authentic luxury feel, a trendy cocktail bar and an incredible restaurant, it’s no surprise that it’s receiving wonderful reviews. 
To put the icing on the cake, they’re now launching a new lunch menu with a brilliant twist. They’ll be changing the menu every two weeks to maintain a fresh feel to it, and making sure you’ve always got something new to try on your lunch breaks! 
We caught up with the head chef Ross Bootland, the man behind their new menu, to find out more. 
Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your background at Dakota? 
I worked for Dakota previously, back in the early days! I then worked for hotels including Malmaison and the De Vere group. I rejoined in January this year (just before Dakota opened in Leeds) and was involved in the kitchen design, the menus and just about everything else. I’m very heavily involved in the Food and Beverage development here. 
What’s it like to work at Dakota? 
Fun, enjoyable and exciting! I came back here because I want to be part of a special company that’s moving forward. I think we’re really forward thinking and there’s not many companies out there that are doing what we’re doing. 
Can you tell us a bit about your new lunch menu and the ideas behind it? 
The new lunch menu goes live at the start of September and we’re changing it every two weeks, offering 2 courses for £15 or 3 courses for £20. 
It’s very seasonal and fresh using the finest local suppliers; the dishes include starters such as Grilled Mackrel on Toast, mains offering everything from British classics to more educated dishes like Lamb, bacon with cream potatoes in a red wine jus with red wine marmalade and our desserts include Dark Chocolate Brownie and even a local one, Harrogate Blue Cheese and Chutney.
The menu is really interesting but it’s also dishes that people do recognise as well, we’ve also kept it as local as possible! 
What do you think makes this lunch menu unique? 
Because it changes regularly, it’s really fresh and vibrant. We’ve got a great product and a great restaurant so it’s about keeping ourselves attractive to our market. 
What’s the dining experience at Dakota like? 
Having launched the experience just four months ago, it’s warm, vibrant and it’s got a prestigious feel to it.
Of course! The Dakota Hotel is still the talk of the town, what do you think makes it stand out from the crowd?
It’s classy, it’s completely different to anything else in the city and it clearly does stand out because of this. It’s the luxury that Leeds deserves.
Why not try out the menu for yourself? You can find Dakota at 8 Russell Street, LS1 5RN, or you can get in touch with them by ringing 0113 322 6261 or heading online to their website: leeds.dakotahotels.co.uk
