Review on Aalto Restaurant at Hotel La Tour
The Aalto Restaurant is housed in the new 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, dove grey chairs are set against smart wood tables, and abstract paintings adorn the walls.
Michelin starred chef Marcus Wareing is consulting on the food and beverage operation, devising the menus and assisting in the recruitment of the kitchen brigade. Heading the kitchen is Dan Pearce who proposes a menu of classic English dishes with a modern twist and diners can enjoy watching the food theatre in the open kitchen. Choose smoked salmon, sourdough, lemon caper butter to start, followed by a main course of Great Garnetts Farm pork belly slow baked, apple sauce and kale or maybe Cornish sea bass, creamed leek, mussels and grain mustard. Desserts provide plenty of choice in the shape of Jaffa cake pudding, warm chocolate, orange cake crumb and cream or bread and butter pudding, caramelised banana served with rum cream.
