Located in a converted luggage factory with a private room for 40 guests and an 80-cover restaurant, The Case offers style, sophistication and staggeringly good value. A prime example is the set price lunch menu, which offers two courses and a complimentary aperitif for £12.50 or three courses and an aperitif for £15.
From the lunch menu, diners can expect to start with delectable dishes such as salmon and cod fishcake, wasabi aioli, and pickled cucumber. To follow, braised blade of beef, braised red cabbage, roasted butternut squash and jus is sure to be a winner. Tempting treats bring your meal to a sweet finish; orange and lime panna cotta with candied lemon and mango sorbet is just one example of the delicious desserts available. The Case’s à la carte menu is equally impressive, with an offering that includes tempura king prawns, chilli and lime jam, and crispy haricot to start, sous-vide pheasant breast, smoked bacon quiona, crispy cavolo nero, and red wine jus to follow, and poached pear Tarte tatin, amaretto ice cream to finish. Don’t forget the fixed-price evening menu, with two courses for £16 and three for £20, allowing diners to enjoy excellent food and drink at attractive prices. At the weekends sample a sumtuous five-course tasting menu.
It’s evident from the menus that a passion to produce great British food with a global influence using fresh, seasonal produce is at the heart of The Case’s ethos. Using modern techniques and always sourcing the best quality produce, taste, colour and texture are paramount to the plates. Whatever your preferences, there’s something flavoursome for everyone here; the vegetarian and vegan dishes are particularly well regarded by customers.
Thanks to this, The Case is perfect for any occasion, from a casual lunch with friends to a sophisticated fine dining experience. Renowned for providing superb service, this unique establishment is spread across four floors, including Leicester’s first and foremost Champagne Bar, each with its own atmosphere and charm. Parties, corporate events and weddings are welcome.
The Case was established in 1990 and continues to grow. Looked upon as a benchmark venue in Leicester, this restaurant is definitely worth a visit.
