A lot had been going on at 670 Grams lately. First, an informal Sunday lunch menu was introduced at the ultra-hip fine dining restaurant in Digbeth. Then, head chef Kray Treadwell decided to do away with the tasting menu entirely, introducing a sharing-style menu for January 2024. Now, it’s gone and opened a natural wine bar, Bodhi Boys.
Announced on Boxing Day, Bodhi Boys opened on December 30 (so you’re excused if you missed this during Twixtmas, we certainly did). Sitting under its sister restaurant, it’s the perfect place to grab a pre- or post-dinner drink. The 16-seat bar mostly focuses on natural wines, but beers, cocktails and nibbles are also served.
You don’t have been in to visit 670 Grams either. Everyone is welcome. In fact, a small but no less impressive snacks menu includes things like a cured meat platter, beef tartare, crab flatbread and milk loaf with miso butter and lardo. Perfect for if you’re just after something light. Bookings can be made via the 670 Grams website, but walk-ins are also available.
As we said, Bodhi Boys isn’t the only change at the Michelin Guide-approved spot this January. The new sharing-style format in the restaurant allows the team to work more closely with smaller farmers and growers. Kray said, “We’re focusing on the food we love to cook, that people love to eat. I’m genuinely excited about this new direction for 670 Grams and we’re really looking forward to 2024.”
The new 670 Grams menu will focus on small plates, such as Beef Tar Tar with an Oyster Emulsion, Pickle, Mustard, and Burnt Potato Skins; Wagu Rib with KT Pickle and BBQ; Cured Monkfish with Date and Tomato Warer; Shrimp with Kimchi and Carrot; and a selection of vegetarian dishes from such as BBQ Courgette, Harissa and Ash.
