Birmingham restaurant Buffalo and Rye opens

A new Americana bar and diner is set to delight diners in Birmingham next week. The latest venture from Birmingham-based bar and restaurant operator Bitters ‘n Twisted Venues, Buffalo and Rye will open on Monday 16th November.

The venue, based at 11 Bennetts Hill, next to the successful Bodega bar and restaurant, adds to the growing restaurant scene in the area.

Specialising in rye whiskeys, smoked pit meats, quality burgers and hotdogs and all day brunch menu, the exciting new venue will have an intimate laidback vibe, bringing a taste of Americana to Birmingham. Specialty cocktails are also set to be popular, with modern and quirky takes on classics.

Headed up by general manager Tom Winter-Nolan, the Buffalo and Rye menu has been created by Birmingham born head chef Mike Lacey who joins the team after spending 10 years working in London. All the meat will be sourced from award-winning Warwickshire butchers Aubrey Allen apart from the hotdog frankfurters which come from a rare breed meat supplier.

Commenting on the launch, Bitters ‘n Twisted founder and director Matt Scriven said: “We’re really excited to be opening next week and hope we can deliver something different to the city. We’ve created a menu which pays homage to US comfort foods whilst introducing a bit of Birmingham quirkiness into the mix and we look forward to welcoming customers through the doors to check it out.

“Birmingham is fast establishing a reputation as a top gastro city and the number of new restaurants opening is testament to Birmingham’s vibrant city centre offering. We’re really proud of our ethos, creating a group of venues that are fuelling the spirit of quality independence in the Midlands.”

The Bennetts Hill site has been transformed over the past two months, with a stripped back, urban décor. The restaurant will cater for up to 50 diners and takes bookings for diners of six or more. The venue is offering up to 50% discount during its opening week

Bitters 'n Twisted Venues was launched by owner Matt Scriven in 2006. It operates eight venues across Birmingham and the West Midlands including, Bodega, The Victoria, Island Bar, The Jekyll & Hyde and The Rose Villa Tavern and employs 170 people.
