Pop-up restaurant launching in Bromsgrove
8:50am Wednesday 16th October 2013 in Local
A LOCAL chef from Catshill is opening Bromsgrove’s first pop-up restaurant, with ingredients so local the staff have foraged for them themselves.
Chef Nathan Eades, together with his Kidderminster-based business partner, chef Grant Hill will be launching ‘Epi’ as a pop-up restaurant on Thursday, October 24.
The two will be using local artisan suppliers and their shared enjoyment of foraging and wild foods, which is being put to good use with a dessert made from elderberries picked by the chefs.
The two currently work at an AA three star hotel in Ludlow as sous chef and pastry chef, but they’re excited about their new venture, which will be running from the Courtyard Café just off Bromsgrove High Street.
Mr Eades said: “Most of our menu’s are hand-picked. The bottom line is it’s free, it’s something that we can go and pick, so we can spend the money elsewhere on the menu. We’re both trained in classical French cookery, that’s what we love doing and feel comfortable doing, but we’re going to use Worcestershire ingredients.”
The idea is that the pop-up restaurant will be opening for two days every month with a five course set menu featuring Modern British cuisine.
Mr Eades added: “I genuinely can’t wait. I’m very nervous, but it gives me and Grant the opportunity to showcase what we’re about and what we can do.”
Epi restaurant will be opening from Thursday, October 24 to Saturday, October 26. To book a table, visit epirestaurant.eventbrite.co.uk or for more information visit facebook.com/epirestaurant or follow the enterprise on Twitter @restaurantepi.
