The Big Eat 3

June 29, 2012

I somehow missed the publicity for the Third Leicester Big Eat restaurant promotion, but I usually try and give it a plug and I’m just in time.  So Big Eat 3 takes place on Monday 2 July, nicely coinciding with arrival of the Olympic torch in Leicester.  Anyone would think they planned these things.

For those don’t know the format, it’s simply that all restaurants are enouraged to put on special events, special menus or just nice big discounts on the same night to get as many people as possible eating out on a Monday.  This year they’ve got over 70 restaurants and bars involved. Have a look at the list of offerings on the One Leicester website but among the interesting ones are:

– 2 for 1 on food at Five Thai (next to Curve on Rutland Street)

– 2 for 1 main courses at The Boot Room

– 2  champagne cocktails for £10 plus Olympic prize quiz at the Case Champagne bar (and 2 for 1 three course meal upstairs at the Case when buying wine)

– 2 pizzas, two sides and a bottle of wine for £20 at the Rutland and Derby.

– 2 for 1 off a selected menu at Anjuna with “the latest Kizomba and Anjuna beats”. I’m off to Anjuna tonight as it happens.

One last word – many of the offers require pre-booking and mentioning of the offer. Previous events have been very popular so check out the details and make your plans in advance. (Sorry for the late notice!).

The Big Eat (again)

January 24, 2012

Good news that the One Leicester campaign has revived its Big Eat initiative that sees many if not most of the City centre’s restaurants run two-for-one type special offers on the same evening.  Last year it brought full tables and something of a buzz to the whole city city centre. This year it’s been brought forward to coincide with the Leicester, sorry, Dave’s Leicester Festival so there’s every reason to combine the two for a cracking night out.

Most of the restuarants require advance booking for the offers and the precise offer does vary so you’ll need to check on the website One Leicester.  Among the most interesting are two for one main courses at Kayal (when ordering two courses), two for one on a special menu and live Indian music at Chutney Ivy and 30 per cent off the food bill at Cedars Lebenese (plus belly dancing).  Many of the chains, independent restaurants and cafes are also running offers.

If you are still swithering then its worth bearing in mind that there will be free parking  at the Newarke Street, Haymarket and Dover Street car parks after 6pm.
