Birmingham’s Opus restaurant has scrapped individual prices on its à la carte menu and has instead introduced a fixed price for either two or three course dining.
It will enable diners at the restaurant in Cornwall Street in the city centre to choose any dish from its à la carte menu, with a two-course lunch or dinner costing £27.50 or a three-course meal £32.50.
The vegetarian menu costs £25 for two courses and £30 for three.
The concept has been spearheaded by award-winning executive head chef Ben Ternent.
He said: “Typically you find that the cheaper, fixe prix menus in restaurants offer limited options for diners, but we were keen to do something a little different from the norm.
“We decided that our diners deserved to enjoy our full à la carte options for a fixed price.
“It’s not something many restaurants do and I’m thrilled to introduce it here at Opus.”
Ann Tonks, managing director at Opus, said: “We’re renowned for doing things a little differently here and because we are independent, we are always looking for new and innovative initiatives that benefit our clientele.
“Ben’s idea to remove the individual à la carte prices and instead have a fixed price across the whole menu is a great idea and I’m sure our diners will agree, too.
“From Opus’s signature fishcake with poached hen’s egg to roasted Cornish monkfish or dry-aged sirloin followed by a warm dark chocolate fondant or raspberry and blueberry iced parfait, the choice is truly theirs.
“Diners can, of course, choose one course only if they prefer and those dishes are individually priced.”
The menu is available for lunch Monday to Friday and dinner Monday to Saturday.
