Another week,  another new restaurant announcement.

This latest addition to Brum's ever growing food and drink scene , will offer lovely canalside views - just in time for summer.

Noel’s Bar and Restaurant will open in June at 22 Waterfront -  overlooking the canal opposite The Cube's Bardolino restaurant. 

It will be housed in the unit formerly occupied by the short lived Vivaanta Indian restaurant and cocktail bar which closed in June 2016.

The name of this new waterside eatery doesn't particularly suggest a Mediterranean style ambiance but this what the owners are promising.

Noel’s Bar and Restaurant co- owner Gjerji Devollaj said: “Our waterfront bar and restaurant will show the best of the Mediterranean food, carefully crafted cocktails paired with extraordinary interior design.

“We wanted to take traditional food to the next level… serving it up alongside the best wines, spirits and cocktails, in the most beautiful environment. We want to replicate that style, sophistication and quality of the Mediterranean, right here in Birmingham.”

The Mediterranean inspired menu will include “artisan pasta made fresh each morning and handpicked cuts of meat sourced from Aubrey Allen.”

A spokeswoman added: "Noel’s Bar and Restaurant will combine traditional recipes inspired by the rich flavours of the Med, with chic and exotic cocktails.

"Noel’s brings together the finest, freshest ingredients with the familiarity of home-cooked food that will transport diners from the back streets of Brum to the beaches of the Med. "

The 90 cover restaurant will feature an open kitchen, real charcoal grill and a 22ft long Italian Picasso marble bar.

News of the opening comes days after nearby The Cube announced the closure of three of its restaurants - Rodizio Rico, Osteria and Madeleine.
