It is a feather in Birmingham's cap that we have such a thriving food scene.
With three Michelin-starred restaurants, scores of fantastic middle-market eateries and countless value places to eat, we are among the country’s best culinary destinations.
Which says a lot for the enthusiasm of people in the hospitality industry, a lot for the readiness of entrepreneurs to provide backing and a great deal for the discerning palates of local diners who support all those great restaurants.
The plans for a food hub in leafy Edgbaston is proof that despite the economic downturn, there is still plenty of confidence in the sector. Calthorpe Estate’s proposal can only add to the strength of Birmingham’s eating out scene.
It’s a thrilling blueprint and Calthorpe Estate – and its partners in the venture – deserve support.
Birmingham truly is a great place to dine.
