No need to book the flight, the Med is coming to Birmingham.
Noel’s Bar and Restaurant will open just in time for summer in its new canal-side location combining traditional recipes inspired by the rich flavours of the Med, with chic and exotic cocktails.
Noel’s Bar and Restaurant will take up residence at 22 Waterfront, adjacent to The Cube and will be a 90-cover restaurant complete with private dining room.
Embodying everything great about Mediterranean cuisine, Noel’s brings together the finest, freshest ingredients with the familiarity of home-cooked food that will transport diners from the back streets of Birmingham to the beaches of the Mediterranean.
Noel's Bar's open kitchen and real charcoal grill will provide a stunning focal point for diners and the menu uses only the finest ingredients, handpicked cuts of meat, and artisan pasta made fresh each morning.
One-half of the brains behind Noel’s Bar and Restaurant is a familiar name on Birmingham’s hospitality scene, Gjerji Devollaj (also known as Jimmy to many).
Speaking about his new venture, he comments:
“We can’t wait to introduce Birmingham to Noel’s Bar and Restaurant and show the city everything we have to offer; Noel’s Bar and Restaurant is set to be something really special. Our waterfront bar and restaurant will show the best of the Mediterranean food, carefully crafted cocktails paired with extraordinary interior design.
We wanted to take traditional food to the next level, serving it up alongside the best wines, spirits and cocktails, in the most beautiful environment. We want to replicate that style, sophistication and quality of the Mediterranean, right here in Birmingham. The city has a thriving food and drink scene, and we’re proud to be part of that"
Gjerjii Devollaj has teamed up with Sabi Ukaj to create the concept behind Noel’s Bar and Restaurant. Sabi adds:
“Growing up in the Mediterranean, I was brought up with authentic flavours and traditional food which has heavily influenced the menu at Noel’s. I have travelled all over Europe discovering many different cuisines and exploring different tastes and flavours. The menu at Noel’s Bar and Restaurant celebrates genuine Mediterranean food but taking it to the next level.”
Noel's is due to open in Birmingham City Centre late Spring.
