Contemporary Chinese restaurant group Tattu has opened its Birmingham city centre site, creating 80 jobs. The 160-cover, split-level restaurant has opened in The Grand development in Barwick Street as the company’s third site.
New dishes created by executive chef Andrew Lassetter include chilli and sesame-roasted scallops with Chinese sausage, while the restaurant also offers a lunchtime menu featuring small plates and new dishes from the wok and grill.
Yin and yang inspired interiors with feature a ground-floor space hosting a bar and private dining rooms, to represent the yang element, while the main restaurant downstairs reflects yin elements with oriental fretwork and Tattu’s signature blossom trees.
Tattu owner and managing director Adam Jones said: “We have taken some new design risks with the site, which we feel pay respect to the heritage space within The Grand while marking the start of what we hope will be an exciting new chapter for the building.”
Tattu launched in Manchester in 2015 with a second site opening in Leeds city centre in June 2017. The company plans to open a fourth site, in Edinburgh, in the summer.
