Brasserie 44, supported by our friends at Global Autocare, are delighted to offer a free lunchtime chauffeur service in and around Leeds city centre. If you would like to arrive at the restaurant in style just request the service when making your reservation.
Restaurateur Steve Ridealgh began his hospitality career the day after he left school in 1975. Starting out at Pool Court Restaurant when it was still based in Pool-in-Wharfedale, Steve worked his way up through the ranks to become General Manager when the restaurant moved in with Brasserie 44 on the The Calls in 1994. When Pool Court (Leeds' only Michelin Starred restaurant at that time) closed at the end of 2005 Steve and Carol bought Brasserie 44 and continue to run it to this day. A real family business with Carol, the Patisserie Chef, and son David is Head Waiter.
There are also a few members of staff who are almost family:
Shirley Hart - joined in 1994 and looks after reservations and all the back office administration.
Steve Adkins - Restaurant Manager who joined in 2001
On Sunday 11th February 2018 sadly Dave passed away after a 12 month battle with cancer. We are all absolutely devastated and our love and thoughts are with his family. Dave had been our Head Chef since 2011.
