Michelin-starred chef Tom Aitkens is opening a restaurant in Birmingham.
But don’t expect fine dining – it’s going to be a far more casual affair than his acclaimed Chelsea restaurant.
Tom’s Kitchen, a restaurant, bar and deli, will open at the Mailbox in December.
As the first UK Tom’s Kitchen venture outside of London, it will offer all-day dining, seven days a week, and will serve British favourites and comfort food classics in a relaxed and informal setting.
There will also be a range of private and semi-private spaces for parties and events.
Tom Aikens said: “Birmingham is a vibrant and bustling city with a thriving food scene.
“There is already a wonderful array of restaurants in the city, and I believe that Tom’s Kitchen will offer an exciting new option for diners in the Mailbox development”.
Simon Samuels, Partner at Brockton Capital, joint owners of the Mailbox, said: “We’re hugely excited to welcome Tom’s Kitchen to the Mailbox later this year.
“The Mailbox is home to a number of ‘firsts’ and, being the first venture for Tom Aikens outside of London, this latest opening is no exception.
“The arrival of Tom’s Kitchen is further testament to the Mailbox’s reputation as a premier shopping and lifestyle destination and the restaurant will be a fantastic addition to the Mailbox’s already impressive portfolio of premium lifestyle brands.”
