Introducing Harborne Kitchen.
Harborne Kitchen is the brain child of Jamie Desogus. Jamie is no stranger to some of the best kitchens in the country, having worked alongside numerous other extremely talented chefs, including Mark Askew in 1 Michelin starred, Petrus, in Knightsbridge. His solid background in fine dining has stood him in brilliant stead to bring a little bit of extra delight to Birmingham’s blossoming culinary scene.
Recommended as one of the best restaurants in Birmingham on TripAdvisor, Harborne Kitchen focuses on precise modern British cooking with an emphasis on bold seasonal flavours. The menu changes regularly to include seasonal ingredients and diners can choose from the six- or eight-course chosen menu or from the four-course menu (optional wine pairing is also available – and highly recommended).
From the outstanding ingredients used, chosen carefully for their exquisite flavours, colours and textures, to the impeccable execution of the dishes, the food really speaks for itself. Jamie and his talented team of chefs really know how to showcase amazing flavours and they cook with precision, skill, flair, and an innate sense of what works. Whether you’re a Harborne resident, or you travel across the city to try it out (and, trust us, it’s well worth the trip), once you’ve had a taste of the incredible food on offer, you will mostly certainly be back for more (we’re already planning our next visit).
Although Jamie likes to shrug off the ‘fine dining’ label, the food served at Harborne Kitchen is more than worthy of that title. Add the outrageously affordable prices into the mix (the four-course menu is obscenely reasonably-priced), and you’re in for a real treat.
Another great aspect of this neighbourhood restaurant is its open kitchen. 10 guests can be seated around the kitchen to watch the action unfold. If you get the chance, definitely grab a seat at the chef’s table to watch your dishes take shape before your very eyes and witness the talented chefs in action. This is where the magic happens.
If you’re looking for a more relaxed and casual experience, the bar area is also available for drinks and a lunchtime bar menu. With a tasty range of bar food to choose from, you could easily make a day of it and settle in for brunch and a few drinks. There are plenty of options to drink too, with a range of craft beers, wines, and cocktails on offer, you’re sure to find a tipple to tickle your fancy.
The restaurant is usually full, so booking in advance is essential. You wouldn’t want to miss out on the glorious food and drink that Harborne Kitchen has to offer.
So, if you haven’t been to Harborne Kitchen yet, why not? It’s the friendly, neighbourhood restaurant serving the beautiful English food that we all need in our lives.
