Orelle Birmingham Announces Opening Date

Orelle Birmingham

The highly-anticipated opening of Birmingham’s newest restaurant, café and bar has been announced, opening its doors on Friday 14th October.

Orelle is located on the 24th floor of Colmore Row and is an exciting, unique new addition to the Birmingham food scene. The double-height restaurant will be set against unrivalled, 360-degree panoramic views across the city and beyond.

From 12pm – 1am, a modern French menu will be served by a team led by executive chef, Chris Emery. He joins Orelle following positions at The Alice in Oxford and Jason Atherton’s Michelin-starred restaurants, Pollen Street Social in London and The Clocktower in New York.

The menu offers a contemporary take on classic French recipes, showcases the best British produce, and celebrates the stories behind locally-sourced ingredients. Dishes include blackberry cured ‘Truite’ for starter; ‘Porcelet’ suckling pig and ‘Citrouille’ tagliatelle for mains, and a venison, grouse and chicken wellington ‘En Croute’ for sharing. 

The captivating interior has been created by architects Doone Silver Kerr, now incorporated into Ryder Architecture. The gorgeous design pays tribute to the site’s heritage as the former National Westminster House. It also draws influence from the nearby Jewellery Quarter. Features include the original cast aluminium banking hall doors, an abstract triangular pattern based on the Natwest identity, finely detailed golden metalwork, and richly veined marble floors.

On the ground floor, Orelle’s 38-cover café and 28-cover outdoor terrace will be open from 8am – 11pm, serving freshly prepared breakfasts, brunches, lunches and afternoon tea. In the evening, the space will evolve into a cocktail bar.

Orelle is the first venture in the Midlands for hospitality group, D&D London, joining its portfolio of more than 40 diverse restaurants, bars and a hotel in the UK, Paris and New York.

Reservations will open on Wednesday 28th September, to book a table visit www.orelle.co.uk.
