The brilliant Harborne Kitchen is back open and the new menu is an utter joy to behold.
Now with a choice of 8 or 11 courses (go for the latter, you won’t regret it) it offers one of the best priced tasting menus in Birmingham, as far as I’m concerned.
Purposefully stripped back but packed full of flavour, the menu will take you through the best of spring produce – there isn’t a dud on the list.
From bitesize mouthfuls of Devonshire crab to wild brill with bbq enoki, if you’re a fan of the sea there’s plenty to enjoy here. Onto meat and the lamb and hogget double act will have you making all the right noises. Each course brings something totally different but it all works together perfectly.
Special shout out to the retro dessert trolly which gives you a nod to the 70s as well as a cracking pud. Go for the miso ice cream with toffee sauce and thank me later.
Was great to see Jamie and the Harborne Kitchen family – I love this restaurant anyway because the food is never less than brilliant but it’s the people behind it that make it so special as an experience.
Wine pairings are available and they have some lovely English sparklings. You’ll also find one of the best espresso martinis in the city here.
Chef’s table is available if you like to watch what’s happening in the kitchen – highly recommend that as an experience anyway as it’s like watching a dance. There’s also vegetarian and pescatarian alternative menus starting from £70.
Fun, tasty and a relaxed approach to fine dining – can’t recommend Harborne Kitchen enough. You can read a previous full review here.
