Simple Italian dining @ Del Villaggio

I've never been the biggest fan of Broad Street, and until my boyfriend and I became Unlimited members of Cineworld (at the Five Ways end of the street) a few years ago I'd not spent much time in that area of the city. In my mind the strip of bars and takeaways is more suited… Continue reading Simple Italian dining @ Del Villaggio

Nakira Bar & Grill VIP launch party

You may have seen my previous blog revealing the first pictures from inside the newest restaurant to hit John Bright Street: Nakira Bar & Grill. It looked pretty swish, so I was delighted to receive a VIP invite to the official launch party, which took place last week.  Despite opening officially earlier this month the… Continue reading Nakira Bar & Grill VIP launch party

Italian dining at @ The Horseshoe Bar and Restaurant

I've lived in a few areas of Birmingham since I moved here way back 2006. Initially I lorded it up in a nice flat right next to Brindleyplace but, when my post-uni 'champagne lifestyle on a lemonade budget' ways caught up with me, I moved a few miles up the road where the houses were… Continue reading Italian dining at @ The Horseshoe Bar and Restaurant

Second birthday celebrations @ Umami

Spring menu bloggers banquet @ Malmaison

Spring is my favourite time of the year. Don't get me wrong, I love the warm summer months but being so pale I tend to enjoy the spring time with a bit more enthusiasm - not to mention less factor 50. Now the (quite bonkers) weather we suffered during April seems to have finally retreated,… Continue reading Spring menu bloggers banquet @ Malmaison
