Squaremeal Review of Adam's Restaurant ?

Run by “the nicest and most unassuming people”, this stylishly sophisticated restaurant is the latest offering from Michelin-starred chef Adam Stokes, who made his name at Glenapp Castle in Scotland before defecting across the border to open a standalone gaff in bullishly food-conscious Birmingham. What was a sandwich shop in the city’s commercial district has been tricked out with faux marble, globe lights, mirrors and a cathedral-like trompe l’oeil centrepiece to create a dramatic backdrop for Stokes’ formidable culinary talents. On offer is a choice of “incredibly good” tasting menus defined by clever, playful conceits and terse dish descriptions – from ‘scallops, pea shoots, mint, red mustard’ to ‘fallow venison, beetroot, cocoa, radish’ or ‘beef, turnip, carrot, shiitake’. Opening salvos might include a refreshing combo of salmon tartare, oyster and cucumber, while desserts could feature raspberries in company with violet, milk and almonds. Lunch is a more straightforward prospect, but whatever you choose, this head-turning Brummie challenger “never fails”.
