A glamorous Newcastle venue, Leila Lily’s, is inviting customers to toast their post-lockdown freedom at its specially-created, stylish, outdoor terrace.
Leila Lily’s, at Grey Street, has created a new food menu and a range of cocktails to mark its re-opening on 12 April. And it has opened a new, canopied pavement terrace, equipped with lounge seating, blankets and patio heaters, to ensure customers’ comfort whatever the weather.
Among the al fresco dishes on offer are an open char-flamed steak or halloumi and mushroom sandwich, cheeseburger and a choice of salads. Seafood fans can choose either Seafood Tempura - tempura Nobashi prawn, squid and mussels served with broccoli, wasabi mayonnaise, pickled Asian salad and nori seasoning - or a coronation crab and nobashi prawn crumpet.
The menu also includes a traditional chicken Caesar salad along with a Leila’s Spring Salad of charred courgette and broccoli, cucumber, peas, soya beans, black quinoa, jumbo couscous, mixed leaves and a citrus and soy dressing. Those with a sweet tooth can round off their meal with desserts such as mango, passion fruit and white chocolate cheesecake, sticky toffee pudding and chocolate and orange torte and Leila Lily’s traditional afternoon tea is also available if booked in advance.
The venue’s renowned cocktail menu has also been refreshed – with the emphasis very much on indulgence. Drinks include Black Chocolate Cherry Forest, made with Stoli raspberry vodka, crème de mure, Chambord, dark chocolate liqueur, black cherry and black raspberry purée, along with Leila's Twist on the classic piña colada; Gin and Bear It.
Groups of friends can also order the venue’s version of Spanish white sangria; Watermelon Sugar Wine.
A combination of sauvignon blanc, brandy, sugar and Cointreau, topped with lemonade and chilled with frozen balls of watermelon, it can be purchased as an individual drink or in a large carafe to share with friends. Leila Lily’s is owned by the Malhotra Group plc, which owns a portfolio of bars, hotels and restaurants across Tyneside and Director of Operations, Atul Malhotra, said he was “excited” to be re-opening.
“Leila Lily’s is our flagship bar,” he said, “and we can’t wait to welcome everyone back.”
