Nestled beneath Birmingham’s newly-refurbished and magnificent hotel is a restaurant bringing a slice of the Big Apple to the city. With intricately-tiled walls and floors, as well as green leather booths and dark wood accents, this New York-style brasserie in central Birmingham has opened its doors to bring a taste and the hustle and bustle of New York.
New York may be the city that never sleeps but it’s also the city that never stops eating, and now Brum can get on board with that mantra too. Isaac’s restaurant, housed in one of Birmingham’s most iconic buildings on Colmore Row, The Grand Hotel, has its own entrance on Barwick Street and serves an array of food influenced by the American city’s signature cuisine.
Executive Chef at Isaac’s, Adam Bateman, said, “Isaac’s is a neighbourhood restaurant with a New York vibe and a pinch of Brum. The menu combines brasserie classics with American comfort food: it’s easy and affordable whether you want to dial your evening up or down.”
Isaac’s big apple inspired menu features comfort food such as sidewalk-worthy hot dogs with sauerkraut, mustard and ketchup, 30-day aged New York strip steak and classic Caesar salad. In addition, you’ll find iconic brasserie dishes as well as a selection of seafood from rock oysters and lobster, to seabass and cod with grits on the menu at Isaac’s.
And the dessert menu is certainly not something you want to glaze over. With standout dishes such as New York cheesecake, Baked Alaska (designed to share), pecan pie and cookie dough s’mores, it’s a dessert lover’s haven. Rounding off the menu is a list of Old and New World wines, as well as indulgent milkshakes, while Isaac’s bar will be serving up bourbons, classic cocktails, and beers on tap- perfect for after-work drinks and lazy weekends.
Isaac’s has joined the Madeleine Bar within The Grand Hotel, which is a gorgeous cocktail bar that’s ideal for informal meetings and get-togethers by day, as well as for sophisticated cocktails and fizz at night. The luxury hotel is a Grade II* listed building that re-opened on May 18 after a £45m refurbishment.
