A couple of weeks ago I was invited to the trial week at new Birmingham dining and drinking venue The Lost & Found, and today, a friend and I went there for lunch 3 days before it’s grand opening. The interior is beautifully decadent with vintage inspired touches reflecting the history of the former Victorian bank building and botanical theme of the place.
As well as ordering two zingy gin and vodka based cocktails to try, my friend ordered pan-seared scallops with pancetta salad for her main and I ordered the smoked salmon, capers, cucumber and watercress sandwich with chips. Both meals were deliciously fresh and presented well. The chips were a hit! When looking at the menu beforehand, we simply couldn’t resist trying the lemongrass creme brulee dessert which came with chilli flecked biscuits. The kick of spice went perfectly with the mild creaminess of the brulee. I’ve no doubt The Lost & Found will become a popular independent eating and drinking place in Birmingham once open, especially with such a varied fresh menu, decent prices and in such a stylish setting.
