Little Blackwood is the newest eatery in Moseley and it's hoping to inject some innovative, seasonal and locally sourced British food into the already vibrant social scene of the Brummie suburb.
Just opened in the premises of the former Cheval Blanc, Little Blackwood is the freshest addition to Moseley's quirky dining scene.
Serving home comforts and traditional flavours with an Asian twist and a touch of theatre (expect an appearance from smoking guns and sauce syringes!), Little Blackwood is hoping to bring something entirely new to the area.
On The Menu
The menu will be eclectic, with a focus on giving modern English dishes an Asian touch.
Starters include Szechuan fillet of beef tartare with smoked egg yolk, Parmesan, and a sesame tuille, and lightly spiced quail, crispy leg lollipop, and red lentil dahl served with homemade peshawari nan.
The main courses also follow the Asian Fusion theme.
The 'Ballotine of Chicken' gets an eastern makeover with the addition of coriander puree, California roll, pickled ginger gel, and sake jus, but more traditional dishes like rack of Welsh lamb with ratatouille and fondant potato are on the menu for those who prefer more subtle experimentation with flavour.
Alongside the more traditional desserts, you can try a steamed Asian doughnut or two to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Little Blackwood is also open during the week for brunch, after it's popular weekend brunches proved a success.
Gracing the menu will be crumpets and smoked salmon, avocado and beans, and even steak and eggs.
At the weekend you can also expect Sunday Lunches with all the trimmings.
The drinks are of high importance at Little Blackwood, with New and Old World wines, world famous champagnes, and classic cocktails on the menu, and all chosen for their ability to be paired perfectly with the food on offer.
The Brains Behind It All
The brains behind it all is Ben Taylor, who trained at University College Birmingham and was formerly Head Chef at the Cen restaurant at the luxurious Celtic Manor Resort in Newport.
He's returned to his hometown to open Little Blackwood, bringing all of his expertise and innovative ideas back to Moseley.
Little Blackwood is now open for business on Alcester Road in Moseley, and they're already proving a hit with the locals.
