Fourth Michelin Star for Birmingham

• Adam Stokes awarded Michelin Star after less than six months in Birmingham
• Birmingham has more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other English city outside of London
• Chef cements city’s reputation as a foodie haven

An award-winning restaurateur – who has been in the city less than six months – has claimed a fourth Michelin star for Birmingham, ensuring the city maintains its reign as home to more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other English city outside of the capital.

Adam Stokes, who previously earned a Michelin Star and 4AA Rosettes in 2011 whilst in Scotland, joins the ranks of the city’s Michelin starred chefs Glynn Purnell of Purnell’s Restaurant, Richard Turner of Turners Restaurant and Luke Tipping at Simpsons.

Adam, who runs the restaurant with wife Natasha, said:

We are absolutely thrilled to be awarded the much coveted Michelin star so soon after opening our doors. The whole adam’s team work extremely hard to deliver the best fine dining experience and without them we could not have hit the ground running. We strive each and every day to take the guest on a culinary journey, to entice and excite.
From the very beginning the city’s people have embraced us and we already consider Birmingham our home. There is a real appetite for good cooking and we look forward to working with other chef’s developing the city’s profile further.

Located in the heart of Birmingham city centre Adam Stokes opened his first restaurant in spring of this year bolstering the city’s reputation as a world-class dining destination. The eponymously named fine dining restaurant – a 25-seat venue located between Snowhill and New Street railway stations on Bennetts Hill – serves an innovative menu of modern British food.

Adam is the latest culinary star to join the city’s growing list of coveted chefs flying the flag for Birmingham on the international stage. Adam’s will run in this location with a move to a larger property in the city centre planned for the future.

Emma Gray, Director of Marketing Services for Visit Birmingham, which is responsible for attracting visitors and which has run a number of marketing campaigns to boost the city’s culinary profile – including its recent ‘Birmingyum’ campaign – said:

It is a tremendous accolade for Adam’s Restaurant to be awarded a Michelin star and is fantastic news for the city – cementing our reputation as an international leader in cuisine.
Home to four outstanding restaurants recognised by the acclaimed guide, we hold more Michelin-stars than any other English city outside of the capital.
Having run a number of successful marketing campaigns to raise the city’s culinary profile we know nearly 60% of people come to Birmingham to experience our world renowned food and drink – it is a key driver of the visitor economy, pulling in tourists from around the globe.
In recent years the city has won plaudits from influential titles such as The New York Times and BBC Olive Magazine amongst others – Birmingham’s growing reputation as a foodie centre is helping us to attract the very best culinary stars to set up shop in the city.

Open for five days a week, the restaurant serves two tasting menus of varying length showcasing Adam’s style. The ‘Tasting 5’ and for the full culinary experience the ‘Tasting 9’ course menu priced at £45 and £75 respectively. Menus are complemented by creative wine pairings and a focused wine list. A light lunch menu of one, two or three courses is available alongside the tasting menus to whet the appetites of lunchtime diners. The couple aim to create a relaxed fine dining service with friendly knowledgeable staff.
