Fantastic news, he puts most of these ‘celebrity chefs’ to shame and produces the best food in the city excluding your out and out fine dining at £100 per head. Legna and Opheem are unreal, Legna producing better Italian food then you get almost anywhere in Italy and Opheem with Asian food a level above anything else you will find. I am assuming this is basically his new individual twist on Fiesta so it will be interesting what he comes up with.

Having lived in Italy for a year I disagree with this, let's not start deluding ourselves. Legna is very very good but that statement is a bit hyperbolic. He certainly puts his own twist on things and it is not slavishly traditional which I like.

The Lord Clifden has been refitted outside (in the garden), it looks like the Botanist. I was speaking with two Red Lion regulars who have decided the place has lost something and are now drinking in 1000 Trades.

IM properties unveils Taste Collective partner.





The operators of gastropub, Tap & Tandoor, are to work with Mell Square shopping centre owners, IM Properties, to develop Taste Collective - an exciting new food and beverage offering to be launched in #Solihull town centre in December.

Taste Collective will provide a range of experience-led offerings to include cocktails and desserts, alongside four pop-up style, street food kiosks and a covered outdoor pergola style seating area, where people can meet up and socialise throughout the day.

A spokesperson said: “The team behind Tap & Tandoor and Zindiya in Moseley will deliver this new immersive eating experience and have a proven track record for delivering innovative new eating and drinking experiences within the region.

“Both IM Properties and the operator have a shared vision to create a vibrant town centre and are keen to see independents flourish and are inviting local traders to get involved with the pop-up street food element of the scheme.”

Rob Hemus asset director for IM Properties said: "We're incredibly excited to be working in partnership with the team behind Tap & Tandoor and Zindiya. Building on the success of both restaurants, we hope to use their creativity and talent to deliver a new individual and first-class leisure experience for Solihull.

"Their shared passion for promoting local independent business is entirely in-keeping with Mell Square's high-quality offering. And their first-hand experience of operating in the town centre will enable them to work well with local traders and create a real point of difference for shoppers and people looking to socialise."

Tap & Tandoor were winners of the Best Independent in last year's Solihull Bids' Excellence Awards and have enjoyed considerable success since opening in the former Saddler's Arms pub in Solihull.

Ajay Kenth director of Tap & Tandoor and Zindiya added: “It’s a fantastic opportunity to work with IM Properties to broaden the offering in the town centre and bring our own individual style to Taste Collective, developing a new destination and eating experience I know visitors to Solihull will embrace.”

Taste Collective is designed to appeal to a wide range of ages and tastes, bringing greater vitality to the town centre - drawing people to Solihull to eat, drink or socialise with friends and family.

Located on the former Costa site, which has now relocated and is continuing its successful trading next to Marks & Spencer, the Taste Collective will officially launch in December.

Some more info
Quote:
A 15-acre (60,700sq m, 653,400sq ft) wave park with a 5.4-acre (21,900sq m, 235,200sq ft) surf lagoon is to be built in the UK town of Coleshill more than 100 miles from the closest surfable ocean.

The £25m Emerge Surf Birmingham facility, named after the city that will be just 7 miles (11km) away, will also feature an outdoor heated swimming pool, a perimeter track for Onewheel self-balancing electric skateboards and a 1,600sq m (17,200sq ft) hub building. Other amenities will include a surf school, surf shop, café and restaurant, multi-purpose fitness studio, physio and massage room and children’s play area.

Technology from Emerge Surf partner Wavegarden will be used to create waves in the lagoon. According to Wavegarden, the Cove system can create up to 1,000 waves an hour at sizes of up to 2.4m (7.9ft) with riding time of 10-15 seconds. The size, shape, power and frequency of the waves are all customisable.

Emerge Surf tells CLAD that it is working with to ensure that the impacts of the development are minimised and mitigated wherever possible. This will include using the majority of the materials excavated when creating the lagoon to re-profile the site. The development will also reportedly use renewable energy and low carbon technologies to keep environmental impact to a minimum, although details of these have yet to be confirmed.

Steve Price, founder and CEO of Emerge Surf, said: “Our vision is to not only provide a world class surfing experience for surfers of all levels, but also a wide range of complementary activities.”

Discussing the potential benefits of the site, Price said: “We’re confident that bringing a little slice of the ocean to Birmingham will deliver a positive social impact and boost mental and physical wellbeing. In addition, we’re very keen to work with local schools not only to teach children to surf, but also to offer swimming lessons and instruction in water safety.”

Emerge Surf Birmingham is expected to attract around 250,000 visitors a year and deliver an annual economic boost of between £18m and £21m to the region. Initial plans, subject to planning approval, show construction commencing late this year and the park opening in spring 2021.

Does anyone remember Red Bar and Grill situated in a basement at the top of Temple Street? What's there now, is it empty or part of Fumo?

Whilst staring skyward at 103 Colmore Row today, I also noticed The Bureau being fitted out and next door FINALLY the Thornbridge brewery planned outlet is also being fitted out, apparently to be called simply the Thornbridge

Thornbridge Instagram says it is going to be called 'The Colmore'.

Decent name and amazing beer.

I Choose Birmingham today said a new Cocktail bar is opening in Stirchley called Couch.

Stirchley's getting dead trendy these days, not surprising as it's slap bang in between two of Brum's hotspots, viz. Bournville and King's Heath.

It seems there's a new venue opening there every time I go down the section between the British Oak and Wickes.

Yeah man. I moved there when it was cheap hoping for a bit of Moseley overspill, and it's coming in! Well happy with all this.
