Two Birmingham restaurants have gained new entries into the Good Food Guide.
Loves restaurant and Lasan have both made it into this year's guide. Loves, a modern British eatery in Canal Square, run by husband and wife team Steve and Claire Love, has a double reason to cheer as this week marks its first birthday.
The guide’s promotion of Lasan is the latest success for the Indian restaurant in St Paul’s Square. Head chef Aktar Islam’s stunning dishes helped Lasan to secure the title of F Word best local restaurant.
A third city restaurant is also among the guide’s new entries for 2011, but Pascals has now closed. The property in Edgbaston is being turned into Glynn Purnell’s second outlet, The Asquith, which is due to open this month.
Elsewhere, Sat Bains, head chef at Restaurant Sat Bains in Nottingham, is given the Best Chef award by the guide’s editors.
Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck is again named the top restaurant in the country.
