Bourne & Co

It's not every day I get invited along to try out Birmingham's first New York style speakeasy bar, so I was very happy when I was invited along to try out Bourne and Co. I have been past the location numerous times on my way to Island Bar or The Victoria but for some reason or the other, I haven't ventured in before. God knows why. The bar is owned by Mikey Bourne, hence the name and it's theme is the 1920's prohibition era. As soon as I walked in, I liked the venue. The atmosphere was relaxed and not pretentious, I also liked that they were skulls adorning the room and the colour scheme of brown, black and gold was very pleasing to my eye.

New Menu: Itihaas

I am really selective about the places I go to for a curry, which is probably why I hardly ever go for one. I am of Asian heritage and my mother is an amazing cook, so I know a good curry when I eat one. So when I was invited along to Itihaas to have a taster of the new menu, I jumped at the chance. My mother has been there and enjoyed the food, a great recommendation, so I wondered how they would cater to my dietary needs.

Bistrot Pierre

French cuisine isn't something I tend to go for, as I feel most of the dishes are full of dairy or pork. However, it was nice to be invited to try out the newest French restaurant on the block, Bistrot Pierre, because the location and venue looked picturesque. But I wondered if the place had style AND substance. The restaurant is located on the canal-side, just a stone throws away from The Mailbox. The canal views and stunning venue are topped off with a balcony and a porch. It is the perfect place for date night or for when the weather is behaving. The restaurant encompasses what I think a sleek, modern Parisian restaurant would be like.
