Following its reopening earlier this month, Harborne Kitchen has added a small plates offering for guests to enjoy.
Available in the bar area, guests can enjoy multiple snack plates alongside carefully curated cocktails and an extensive wine list.
The selection of dishes available is considered, including some old favourites from the tasting menu including chicken parfait that will no doubt delight regular guests.
Other nibbles include the pork belly taco with pineapple salsa (my favourite from the menu – and I tried 99% of it), cod roe and arenkha caviar, and chicken thigh skewers with cucumber pickle. There’s several veggie options, with most dishes ranging from £4-8. Its best to order like tapas and share with friends, that way you can try a bit of everything.
The service is just as friendly and consistent as you’ve enjoyed in the restaurant and makes for an ideal way to dine at HK with a bit less formality.
The bar, like the restaurant, has undergone a bit of a makeover in order to provide a safe dining experience for guests, with booths created to allow for more private space. Safety is a priority with front of house explaining “house rules” throughly before you enter the bar area. There’s hand sanitiser galore and the toilets are literally the cleanest place in Birmingham right now.
The bar is open Tuesday-Friday between 6pm and 8:45pm and on Saturday between 12pm-2pm and 6pm-9pm. Best to book online in advance.
Was great to see Jamie and the Harborne Kitchen family – I love this place and while the food is never less than brilliant the people behind it are a large part of why it’s so special.
Love the new concept and grateful to have spent a lovely evening in great company. I’ve written about Harborne Kitchen before if you’d like to know more about the venue and service. Give this previous review a read.
