The 20 coolest restaurants in Birmingham

In 2015, whether you like it or not, Birmingham became cool. For decades the city tried to convince the rest of the nation that it was a superb place to live and for decades nobody listened. 

This year, Brum found the confidence to stop caring and as if by magic, people started to take note. Thousands swarmed to Brum from London, it found itself in the Rough Guide's top 10 cities in the world and a fifth Michelin star was rightfully sent its way.

This new found confidence is most pronounced in Brum's food industry, where bars and restaurants are producing some of the most exciting feed in the country. Hark! It's the 20 coolest restaurants in Birmingham, compiled by Tom Cullen, editor of I Choose Birmingham.

Book in advance.
