On Tuesday 26th January 2016 Adam's re-opens from the winter holiday in it's new permanent home of Waterloo Street. The British Michelin Starred 36 seater restaurant located in Birmingham city centre is run by Chef patron Adam Stokes and his wife Natasha. In addition to the main restaurant which seats tables of up to 10 guests an adjacent 16 seater dining room is available for private functions. For that extra special experience there is also a chef's table located in the kitchen for exclusive use or individual groups. A la carte and tasting menus are served alongside a three course lunch menu available 12noon to 2pm, Tuesday to Friday. Please note the tasting menu is the only dining option available on a Saturday evening. The modern food is a blend of tradition marriages with inventive twists. The restaurant marries classical elegance with friendly professional service.
