Bristol-based gourmet pie firm Pieminster has acquired a site in Leeds for its 10th restaurant.
The new venue at 15/17 Duncan Street is opposite Red's True Barbecue in the centre of the city and is set to open in April.
The opening forms part of a strategy to open 20 new sites within the next five years, with two more openings planned for 2015.
Future targets include Liverpool, a second outlet in Manchester, Nottingham, Brixton and Clapham.
Founded in 2003 by Jon Simon, Pieminster's pies are sold in Borough Market and at Harrod's.
Simon, managing director of Pieminster said: "Leeds is our most ambitious restaurant so far and marks the start of an exciting new era for Pieminster. As well as it being our largest restaurant, we have an exciting new menu which our Leeds customers will be the first to try.
"This has been created to complement the classic pie range we're best known for, which we still make in our own kitchens - using 100% free range meat and other great British ingredients."
