Review on Mr White's English Chophouse
Formerly the Aalto Restaurant, in November 2015 it morphed into Marco Pierre White's first Mr White's English Chophouse, housed in the Hotel La Tour. A modern yet classic hotel that opened in March 2012 in the city centre of Birmingham at a cost of twenty four million pounds, just a short stroll from the Bullring Shopping Centre. The brasserie style restaurant looks eminently chic with a modern décor, and large pictures of Marco decorating the walls.
The kitchen combines English classics with French influences for a restaurant concept that originated in 18th century London, when chophouses were a popular venue for business meetings conducted over hearty meat dishes with fine wines and ales. These days diners can look forward to starters in the shape of Wheeler's crispy calamari with sauce tartar or Welsh rarebit paired with poached eggs and toasted sourdough. Fish fans will enjoy the next course of Mr White's fish curry with mango and coriander, salmon, cod, shrimps and buttered rice or you could choose one of the Chophouse's quality steaks, 28 day aged from Her Majesty's Official butchers and served with grilled vine tomatoes, watercress and triple cooked chips. To finish there's a classic Knickerbocker glory or alternatively a selection of farmhouse cheeses.
