On Monday 28th March 2022, the Yorkshire Evening Post hosted their annual Oliver Awards to highlight what the Leeds food and drink scene has to offer, celebrating the best restaurants, bars and cafés across the city.
City-centre venue, Grand Pacific, was officially crowned winner of the Best Brunch 2022 award.
After launching in June 2021, Grand Pacific quickly became the city’s go-to restaurant and bar, serving flavours from far-flung lands fused together with quintessential British classics. With an all-day dining menu, Grand Pacific in particular has shaken up the city’s brunch scene, with guests travelling from far and wide to experience the menu for themselves.
Oliver Award judges commented: ‘’Good food and a great wine list, a brilliant range of dishes and cuisines from around the world. The restaurant is beautiful and has been stunningly refurbished.”
Served Saturday and Sundays between 10am and 2pm, the menu includes signature dishes such as Shakshouka, Steak & Eggs, Smashed Avocado and ‘The Full Skillet’, a take on a Full English Breakfast, as well as traditional brunch staples such as Florentine Eggs Benedict, Croque Monsieur and Breakfast Pancakes.
On the menu for drinks is an extensive selection of classic brunch cocktails, such as the Grand Pacific Bloody Mary, Mimosa or Paloma. A selection of fruit smoothies are available for something that little bit lighter, And if coffee is on the hit list, Grand Pacific offers a spectacular selection of hot drinks including its famed ‘Organic Superfood Lattes’, with guests able to choose from Golden Turmeric, Beetroot, Matcha Green Tea, Butterfly Plea or Rooibos Tea.
Scott Grimbleby, Group Operations Director of Living Ventures, comments: “We are thrilled to have been awarded the ‘Best Brunch’ award at the 2022 Yorkshire Post Oliver Awards this year. It’s a huge honour, especially given that this is within our first year of opening. It’s fantastic to see the teams hard work has already been acknowledged.”
