Visit: 8 September 2020, lunch for four.
Adam’s was busy for lunch, even during these Covid times, which is a testament to the quality of this Birmingham city centre restaurant. Service and food were excellent. This is one of my favourite restaurants in Birmingham.
All the dishes were very well executed and presented, but there was one standout dish of Scottish Halibut and lobster that was hugely impressive. The fish was cooked flawlessly, accompanied by a juicy poached lobster tail, but it was the deep, complex, perfectly reduced, fermented pepper lobster bisque that was so remarkable. This was very accomplished cooking and would have been a 20/20 if I scored each dish.
The cost of the tasting menu was £97 per head and we chose the option 2 wine pairing at £115 per head. For the quality of food and the terrific service, this is value for money.
I will be going back!
