Craft Dining Group has announced the opening of its first restaurant at Birmingham’s International Conference Centre, after a seven figure investment.
The 150-cover dining room will comprise a main dining room, central bar and two private dining rooms, available to rent for private hire with guests able to work alongside the kitchen team to create a bespoke menu for their event.
The menu will have seasonality at its heart with a focus on simplicity and quality of ingredients. Lunch service will feature a stripped-back menu that concentrates on British-inspired sharing plates.
The dinner menu includes beef wellington with Wiltshire truffle, roasted sea trout with Isle of Wight tomatoes and Cornish day boat turbot alongside a host of a selection of British cheeses.
Owners Sam and Emma Morgan will be working alongside some of the “best British culinary talent” for a number of restaurant openings across the city to be announced later this year.
Sam Morgan, co-founder of Craft Dining Rooms, said: “We’re thrilled to be opening Craft Dining Rooms in the heart of the Birmingham and at an incredibly exciting time of growth and change for the city. Our Craft restaurants will represent many traditions of British culinary history and whilst all unique, all will showcase and focus on the artisan producers that make British food what it is. We’re delighted to be bringing our British concepts to the burgeoning Birmingham restaurant scene.”
