Open their newly refurbished doors in Birmingham
Birmingham welcomed the long awaited re-opening of the newly refurbished Harvey Nichols store last Friday, and as much as I’d love this post to be about all the Louboutins, Valentinos and Mulberrys I invested in whilst walking around the sensational store, I’m afraid I can only share what we ate for brunch in their stylish new restaurant whose menu is curated by Michelin-starred chef, Glynn Purnell. Apologies in advance for the quality of the pictures, there was no natural light - perfect for my skin tone when on a date, but not great for blogging - I've not worked out how to operate my camera in ambient settings yet!
I’m always reluctant to opt for scrambled eggs when I’m dining out because I’m quite fussy about how they are cooked, but without sounding like a blogger who was sponsored to write this post (I’m not!), I can honestly say they were among the best scrambled eggs (apart from mine) I have tasted: hot, flavoursome, not too runny, not too firm and served with rashers of bacon, a pancake and some warm sourdough bread which made my taste buds dance about; this specific combination of foods was not on the menu, instead I cherry picked my individual favourites from the other menu options (a waiter’s worst nightmare, right? Well mine was very accommodating.). My friend chose the oeuf cocotte with oxsprings ham and Manchego cheese which I had not heard of before and, admittedly, it seemed a little too adventurous for my taste, but she assures me it was delicious!
