Halloween is almost upon us! Whilst you may or may not be getting dressed up, going pumpkin picking and trick or treating, Halloween can definitely be made into an excuse to head out for dinner.
I've found a few spooky menus for you from some of the best restaurants in Leeds, so keep reading to find out more.
Stuzzi's Halloween Horror Menu
Stuzzi is a fabulous Italian small plates restaurant located in a stunning setting above the Grand Arcade. I always say it's one of the best restaurants in Leeds, and the perfect date night spot.
They will be serving their Halloween Horror Menu from 17th-29th October. Dishes included:
Nerveti - a Stuzzi take on a classic dish found in and around Florence market. Braised bovine connective tissue, sun-dried tomato, chilli, spring onion and collatura di alici.
Arancini Nero - red pepper, tomato & smoked chilli risotto balls, filled with an oozing centre of pickled 'witches warts' caper & coagulated sheep milk. Coated in black bread crumbs and deep fried.
Burrata Affumicata - smoked Pugliese 'ghost' honey, roast Musquee De Provence squash, green walnut and sage.
You will need to book via their website.

Tattu's Skullduggery Halloween Brunch
Enjoy a four-wave brunch menu of unique Chinese-fusion dishes, featuring pumpkin carved baods and candied skull desserts.
There will be free-flowing cocktails and champagne, resident DJs.
It's £45pp for the food, plus extra for the free-flowing drinks, but Tattu is one of the fancier restaurants in Leeds and the food is always exceptional.

Meat Stack's 'The Last Taco Stand'
I tried Meat Stack for the first time a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed their burgers.
I had the French Canadian which included a hash brown, blue cheese, garlic butter, chilli-maple syrup and streaky bacon (as well as a double beef patty, of course!). Need to give their breakfast menu a go soon as it looks delicious.
To avoid the pumpkin approach, they are celebrating Halloween with a Day of the Dead special: The Last Taco Stand.
Dry aged Yorkshire beef patties, smoky mountain mayo, diced onion & cilantro salsa, chile 'dust', nacho crumbs & queso fresco.
They recommend pairing with their Spiced Hazelnut Chocolate Flash Shake.
Eat Your Greens Halloween Hangover
A post-Halloween special at Eat Your Greens: a 'Halloween Hangover Taco & Tequila Tuesday'.
There are three taco dishes (the crispy pork belly, pork scratching, pickled fennel & tomato salsa one sounds amazing!), a selection of sides and some weird & wonderful tequila and Mezcal cocktails.
I think I would go for the Hot Wax Margs: chilli inused El Sueño tequila, gold, sugar, lime & chilli salt.
Book a table via their website.
