@pizza Grand Central
Ranked as one of the very best restaurants in Birmingham, @pizza may have a very modern name, but there’s nothing too left field about the top-quality pizzas it’s famous for. Unless, perhaps, you go for one of their dessert pizzas laced with your favourite sweet treats. If you’re spending an afternoon at the Bullring and Grand Central shopping centre, don’t miss the tailor-made pizzas on offer at this popular haunt.
Lying to the east of the city centre not far from Aldridge, the NEC and Birmingham Airport, Tradita is a welcoming sort of place with a down-to-earth nature. Expect traditional Mediterranean food cooked by chefs who know what they’re doing and served by friendly faces. From typical Italian dishes to Greek-style kebabs and mouthwatering steaks, make sure you check out the daily specials board for even more options.
If you’re looking for a Tapas Revolution, a visit to this restaurant might just change your world. Another Grand Central eatery which is not only incredibly convenient but also well worth a visit in its own right, this Spanish cafe bar and restaurant specialises in tapas, vino and cervezas. A must-visit if you love sharing tasty small plates, the sangria also has a lofty reputation too.
If you’re looking for a more exclusive bite, this Michelin-starred haunt is truly one of the very best restaurants Birmingham has to offer. Fine dining at its finest, Adam’s also has three AA Rosettes and is in the Good Food Guide’s top 50 restaurants in the UK. High-quality ingredients, contemporary British dishes and a personal style of service are sure to provide you with a memorable evening out, especially if you choose to dine at the chef’s table.
Situated in the Moseley area just south of the city centre, Chakana is a modern Peruvian restaurant which draws on the values of ancient indigenous cultures to deliver a wonderful dining experience. Housed in an old bank, there’s a stunning tasting menu to consider, as well as à la carte options including traditional raw fish, meat and vegetable dishes.
