Chef Luke Reynolds launches crowdfunding campaign to open Luke’s Place in Sheffield

Simon Wood, James Cochran and Adam Reid support Chef Luke Reynolds for guest nights as he aims to raise £20,000 to open Luke's Place in Sheffield.


Chef Luke Reynolds is looking for £20,000 to help fund essential equipment and tableware to open Luke's Place this summer - and is offering some very special guest night with MasterChef Winner Simon Wood, 12:51 owner James Cochran and chef-patron of Adam Reid at the French, Adam Reid.


Luke is an established Chef and also the founder of On The Pass Clothing.


Luke's Place will be a relaxed 16 seat neighbourhood restaurant sitting on Infirmary Road, just outside of Sheffield city centre. The restaurant will serve a seasonal tasting menu along with selected local beers and cocktails to pair with the food. 


Luke's Place will be delivering fine-dining quality served in a relaxed and casual setting welcoming everybody. The interior theme is based on Sheffield's industrial heritage and the beautiful surrounding countryside.


Owner Luke says

"Luke's Place aims to deliver outstanding value for money, this isn't London and we respect that. We want everybody to feel welcome at Luke's Place and want you to know we are not in this for the big money, we aim to be a local neighbourhood restaurant serving good food in a chilled atmosphere, this is why it will cost just £30 for a five-course meal and an additional £20 for either a beer or cocktail pairing.  


At this stage, it is very much a project. The building was previously used as a takeaway so a full refurb is in order before we can open. We need to build, redecorate and redesign. After that, we need to buy all of our kitchen equipment, our restaurant bits and uniforms. This is where I need your help. As soon as I saw the business and location I wanted it. I couldn't let it go, I saw the potential in the property and I know that this will be a great success and bring something new to Sheffield. 


I have used all my savings up buying the business, I have just enough money to redecorate but I need help to buy the kitchen equipment, restaurant bits and the uniforms. I don't want to go to the bank and borrow money, so I thought it would be a great idea to open up to you. 


I need £20,000 to be able to open the doors and start running the business. I know this is a large sum of money so I have created different ways in which you can help and get a reward in return. Without your help, I won't be able to open the doors, I just want to be honest, I am fully depending on this and I hope it works. I know we are in strange times right now and things are a bit uncertain but hopefully, this will give you something to look forward to and I promise I will put everything I've got into it to make sure you have a nice place to come and make fun future memories."
