TV chef Aktar Islam is to open two restaurants in Birmingham. The Opheem, championing “progressive Indian cuisine”, opens in June, in Summer Row on the site of the former Mechu bar.
Aktar, who made his name with his creative, fine dining take on Indian cuisine during Gordon Ramsay’s The F Word in 2010, is also planning to open a new Italian restaurant. Mi Amore Ristorante Pizzeria will open in the former FSK steak restaurant in Summer Row in May.
