SquareMeal Review of
Carters of Moseley
“The best local restaurant I've been to”, declares a fan of this admirable neighbourhood eatery in a row of shops close to the centre of Moseley. Brummie chef Brad Carter brought it all back home when he pitched camp here, and with partner Holly Jackson running front of house, he has turned the place is an amiable set-up noted for its mix of classy informality and Michelin-starred British food of the best sort. “Simple, yet refined” sums up the approach, witness clear-flavoured seasonal dishes such as Tamworth pork belly with grilled peas and nasturtiums or Cornish turbot with beans, smoked roe and orange butter. Spanking fresh ingredients are the key, whether it’s a snack of wild sea trout and gooseberries, a serving of Tunworth cheese with malt bread and Australian Manjimup truffle or a dessert involving ewe’s yoghurt, raspberries and roses. Vegetarians have their own menus, meals are interspersed with lots of trendy extras, and the food is supported by a fascinating choice of global wines and beers.
