Out of the Woods, independent coffee shop, and Fazenda, authentic Brazilian restaurant, have both taken up space at Waterman’s Place at ISIS Waterside Regeneration’s Granary Wharf development in deals secured by agent, Creative Space Management.
Out of the Woods, owned by Jon Baldwin and Ross Halliday, has a lease of a 550 sq ft unit on a ten year tenancy following the success of its flagship café in Holbeck Urban Village, just south of Leeds city centre, which opened in 2006.
Out of the Woods Granary Wharf, the development’s first coffee shop, will offer internal and external seating for diners as well as a take away service and an outside catering facility. The outfit is also opening a pop-up Christmas shop in a next door unit which launches on Thursday, offering a range of Yorkshire Christmas hampers along with cheeses and chocolates.
In a second new opening this month, Fazenda, a Brazilian steak restaurant has agreed the lease of a 4,538 sq ft unit for 15 years. The restaurant, which opens on Monday, has been set up by a business consortium.
Robert Melmon will be in charge of the day-to-day running of the restaurant, following the success of his family-run restaurant, Argento Steakhouse in Huddersfield.
The restaurant’s menu features 15 cuts of meat cooked by gaucho chefs in a traditional rodizio grill, served alongside a gourmet salad bar, authentic Brazilian side dishes and speciality South American beers and wines.
