Tattu to open third restaurant in Birmingham

Chinese restaurant brand, Tattu is to open the doors to its third venue in Birmingham city centre in January 2019. The opening creates 80 new jobs at the 150-cover, split-level restaurant located within the historic Grand development.

The restaurant will serve Chinese-inspired cuisine, taking traditional ingredients and classic flavours, combined with new ideas and cooking techniques. The result is a distinctive and contemporary take on the much-loved style of food, with innovative dim sum and delicious sharing plates that encourage an interactive dining experience.

Diners can look forward to a selection of Tattu’s signature dishes such as Beef Fillet and Caramel Soy and the delicate Saffron Black Cod. New menu additions, developed by executive chef Andrew Lassetter and his team, include Chilli and Sesame Roasted Scallops served with Chinese sausage, crushed edamame and mint, as well as an Asian Pear Crumble with green apple, almond and a pink custard.

Tattu Birmingham will also offer a dedicated lunchtime menu, Taste of Tattu, providing guests with a premium express lunch of two or three courses priced at £23 or £28. Taste of Tattu features a selection of the restaurant’s best-selling small plates combined with innovative dishes from the wok and grill alongside its stunning desserts. The special menu will run daily and delivers all the quality and creativity of Tattu’s à la carte menu.

The brothers behind the brand, Adam and Drew Jones, are incredibly excited about the regeneration of The Grand development recognising its place within the city’s rich history. Tattu Birmingham is the first restaurant in the group that’s located within a heritage space and this has played a key role in creating a unique concept for the site. With a strong focus on stunning interiors, the brothers are embarking on what will be their most detailed and bespoke fit out to date.

Adam Jones, managing director, said, 'Each Tattu restaurant has its own identity and style that takes customers on a sensory journey as they dine. We recognise the historic importance of The Grand to the city and wanted to reflect that in our concept.

“Being situated underneath the stunning Grosvenor Suite we knew we would need to carefully consider our restaurant layout and design. With the grandeur of the space, the challenge was to provide flow through the ground and basement levels.

'We explored the Chinese philosophy of Yin Yang and fell in love with the idea of two different entities that blend together to create something harmonious.

'Working with this concept we are hoping to create a restaurant that complements the outstanding features of the space, the results should be beautiful and deliver a unique customer experience that is exclusive to Birmingham.”
