Belushi's did a fantastic burrito, and a great piece of blueberry pie to follow. The drink of choice was Budweiser Budvar. I loved this place. I believe it had to close because of a threatened lawsuit by John Belushi's widow or someone, who wanted to open a Blues Brothers Café in London. A massive loss to Leeds but hey, #memories

(Mine isn't, I'd confused it with Kitson!)

So far as I recall the new build began as Kitson. I went there the day it opened. As I remember its opening was delayed by a few weeks, which we spent at the Mechanics Institute next door, now a museum. That would mean the building was erected and opened around 1963 - 1964 (probably the latter). I also did a more recent C&G course at Kitson in 1997, by which it might have had another name - around the same time (1997) I also attended Leeds Poly on a specialised course.
