Birmingham’s most eagerly-awaited restaurant opening is just days away from completion.
The new-look Adam’s Restaurant is due to open its doors on Tuesday, January 26.
Work began before Christmas on the stylish new premises at New Oxford House, 16 Waterloo Street, overlooking Victoria Square.
The new place is just a stone’s throw from the restaurant’s original home in Bennett’s Hill.
During their time in Birmingham, chef-patron Adam Stokes and his team have won a string of accolades.
Honours have included a Michelin star, three AA Rosettes and a placing in the list of the UK’s top 30 restaurants.
And last autumn, Adam’s was named TripAdvisors’ top restaurant in Britain and the fourth best in the world.
The new restaurant is a 35-seater – similar in size of Adam’s current location – but also boasts a 16-seater private dining room.
A chef’s table will be added in the kitchen soon after opening to accommodate individual diners and parties.
Adam said: “A lot of hard work by many people has gone into this move but, looking at the new premises, it’s been worth every minute.
“We are all very excited to have a restaurant that looks so great.
“Teams of craftsmen have been busy in the new building creating a restaurant that will have cool contemporary decor, with flashes of excitement across the room.
“The kitchen is state-of-the-art, every inch fully bespoke, with granite and black stainless steel. It will also house a development kitchen and wine room.”
Adam added: “The whole restaurant will be a facility that we will be extremely proud of and hope Birmingham will be proud of it too.
“The ethos remains to excite guests with accurate cooking of quality ingredients served in an approachable environment, to create a unique experience for each diner within our friendly and professional restaurant.
“We aim to continue to cook good honest food in an imaginative way to stimulate and satisfy our guests, also to continue to gain accolades that we have already started to at Bennett’s Hill.
“Thank you for everyone’s support over the past couple of years and we hope to welcome all to come and relax and enjoy a business lunch, a meal with friends or a romantic dinner with a loved one.”
