Crossley Street
Capturing the essence of the Mediterranean, Ricci’s Place has a relaxed and inviting atmosphere where you can enjoy innovative, homemade food and great service.This privately-run restaurant is headed up by restauranteur and head chef Michael Ricci, who already holds a great reputation in the area. Michael, of Italian descent, spent his summers growing up in Italy, which is where his passion for food began:“As a young boy I would stand in awe and watch my nonna cook. Helping her to make fresh pasta, drying it in the sun and climbing the olive trees to pick the ripest, tastiest olives, I knew that food was going to be a big part of my life. These memories are what inspired my concept for Ricci’s Place; making fresh pasta on-site every day, using the freshest and highest quality ingredients and providing authentic Mediterranean food, just as you would have found it sat round the table with the family at nonna’s farm in Italy” – Michael RicciIn an area that is fast developing to become the hub of Halifax’s town centre, the restaurant is located in a grand grade II listed building, originally built by the Crossley brothers in the 1800′s as an extension to the Town Hall. Now, transformed into a vibrant yet rustic space, the restaurant still boasts it’s original vaulted ceilings, Corinthian pillars, sash windows and oak sliding doors, giving the place a sense of character.Open from 9am until late evening Monday to Saturday, we provide a varied breakfast, lunch and dinner menu, or if it’s just a quick coffee you fancy or a tub of delicious Italian ice-cream, we will always welcome you with open arms!Prue gives us the thumbs up!! – Prue Leith, a world famous foodie and the founder of Leiths School of Food and Wine who co-presents ‘Great British Menu’ for the BBC recently visited our restaurant. In a later interview for the Yorkshire post, when asked ‘What’s your idea of a perfect weekend/day out in Yorkshire?’ Prue replied,‘A sunny Saturday. Breakfast at Ricci’s Place in Halifax.’
Gringo’s in Huddersfield is certainly gaining a reputation as one of the best restaurants to hit West Yorkshire. Serving Mexican dishes in a warm atmosphere of orange and purple design, it is a vibrant and happening place to eat and chill out.Years of traveling in Indonesia, Australia, Fiji and America, experimenting with foods and cultures, has given Chris Lee and Ben Franco the experience and individuality to offer dinners exciting creations. And it is paying off.  The restaurant is becoming a haven for those wanting quality food and service. With a specials menu that knows no comparison and a main menu offering traditional delights such as fajitas, chimichaga and enchilada, there is something for everyone. The décor is a funky mix of 1960s refurbished furniture, distinctive wall designs and shattered bullet proof glass in frames!It has a reputation which is attracting customers from as far as Leeds and Manchester while at the same time putting Huddersfield firmly on the map.“it has exceeded all expectations” said thirty year old Chris “Gringo’s was a plan we had years ago but didn’t feel it was the right time.Then we decided to go ahead and it has just taken off” The guys are adamant that everything should be done the way they want it and they have worked hard to get everything exactly right. Chris added “Passion is our motivation and we knew in our hearts that this was the way it should work”.“from the way the restaurant has been designed through to the style of music and the food, everything has been decided by ourselves.”
