Harborne Kitchen will fully open to the public on Friday 18th November

Two soft launches, on the Wednesday and Thursday before, have already sold out.

The 11-month transformation project of the former butchers shop is nearing its final stage, and chef and owner Jamie Desogus has already appointed a highly experienced team for when the wraps finally come off. 

Kingsley Crocker, whose CV boasts Simpsons and The Highfield in Edgbaston among the top establishments he's worked for, will be general manager. 
His passion for the hospitality industry saw him leave Exeter as a 16-year-old to come and study at University College Birmingham. 

His depth of knowledge and relaxed attitude is exactly what Harborne Kitchen is about,

said Jamie

And Kingsley is just as thrilled about his new position. 

I'm very excited to be on board with this project,

he said.

Nowhere in Birmingham offers an experience like Harborne Kitchen will, with the chefs having nowhere to hide in the open kitchen.

And joining him is bar manager Josh Powell, an experienced cocktail master who has a wealth of experience creating exciting new drinks.
Josh, a proud Brummie who has worked at both Saint Paul's House and Aluna, said:

I'm excited to have the opportunity to work with such great people and believe we can bring something new to our great city. And we'll put Harborne on the map!

It will open Wednesday and Thursdays from 11am-11pm, Friday and Saturday, 11am-11.30pm and Sunday, 11am-7pm. Food is not served between 2.30pm and 5.30pm Wed to Fri.
