Review on Maribel
Maribel which translates as beautiful in Latin is the new venture from acclaimed chef Richard Turner, who in January 2018 closed his eponymous restaurant in Harbone where he held a Michelin star for nine years. Occupying the former Edmunds Bistro de Luxe site, it's located at Brindleyplace, Birmingham's number one business, leisure and tourist destination built around the historic canals of the city. Having undergone a £250,000 refurbishment, the dining room is an elegant blend of open space and easy intimacy with understated luxury, all presented in a palette of sleek neutrals and natural elements.
Following the departure of Richard Turner, the restaurant has appointed former Swinfen Hall Sous Chef, Harvey Perttola to lead the kitchen. Showcasing a more relaxed style of fine dining there's the option of a three course a la carte menu alongside a simplified tasting menu. To start the ball rolling opt for mackerel, potato, buttermilk and sour dough before moving on to a main course of venison, chervil root, swiss chard and cobnuts. Desserts conjure up the likes of salted caramel, honeycomb chocolate and marsh mellow or maybe apple, brioche, vanilla and bay leaf.
The wine is a well sourced slate that roams the globe and there's options available by the glass by the Coravin system ensuring top quality preservation.
