Set to level up your Insta feed this winter…
It might have been a pretty pants start to the year, to say the least, but if one thing has thrived in recent months – it’s our wonderful Brummy restaurants. And this bar and restaurant rivals the most Instagrammable hotspots in town… Bold statement, we know.
The pretty pink paradise that is 202 Kitchen was based at Pitsford Street in the Jewellery Quarter but it’s moving more central. And if their JQ location was anything to go by in terms of gorgeousness then their new city centre location coming this winter will certainly be pulling out all of the stops to provide guests with that all-important ‘social media moment’.
With their soft-hued baby pink outdoor pergola, we think they’ve definitely achieved Instagram status. From cow print adorned corners and Malibu Barbie set-ups, to a stunning outdoor area that’s dripping in flowers – the venue isn’t short of photogenic spaces. Like their Manchester branch, we’re expecting beachy vibes as well as a slight nod to Miami Vice and Grand Theft Auto, minus the criminal activity (unless it’s illegal to eat too many chicken wings) and with more beautiful, pink décor at their new location to be revealed soon.
But despite all of that, it’s the comfort food that really catches our eyes, with a trapbox-inspired menu packed full of drool-worthy dishes including ribs, fried chicken, wings, mac and cheese and more. For those not already familiar with the trapbox trend, it all began on social media – where amateur chefs would take to their platforms to share tasty looking snaps of their homemade grub piled up into a box.
The trend became so big, trapbox chef Prince Owusu successfully launched his very own Trap Kitchen back in 2017. Now, taking inspiration from the trend, 202 Kitchen serves up its hearty grub made by professional chefs as well as sensational small plates, putting the focus on the flavours and paying homage to their foodie inspiration.
Not only is the spot the perfect casual restaurant by day, but by night, guests can hang out with friends while sipping on tasty cocktails – with a carefully curated menu of 202’s very own creations to choose from. Fulfilling those sweet cravings is a classic dessert menu with a twist, featuring faves such as the chocolate brownie and Oreo cheesecake.
Bookings are advised to guarantee yourself a spot, and you can book a table here. 202 Kitchen is however set to move to a swanky city centre location this winter, so keep your eyes peeled for more beautifully pink aesthetics to come.
