Birmingham chefs launch new pop-up restaurant

Birmingham chefs Nathan Eades and Grant Hill are set to open a new pop-up restaurant aimed at making the most of Midlands produce.

The pair, who met five years ago while working at Exclusive Hotels' Lainston House in Winchester, will open Epi restaurant next week.

The pop-up will be at the already established Kitchen Garden Cafe in Kings Heath, according to the Birmingham Post.

Eades said: "Our philosophy is based around being as local as possible and trying to source as much as we can from within Bromsgrove.

"The produce within the Midlands is fantastic. The wild food here is second to none with lots of mushrooms, herbs and fruits right on our doorstep."

After Lainston House, Eades spent a year working in Vancouver before returning to the UK and taking a role at the three-rosette Fishmore Hall in Ludlow, where he once again worked with Hill.

Epi was first launched Last October after Eades quit his job. He put on seven events in two months at the Courtyard Café, with support from Hill, who continues to work full-time at Fishmore Hall, and his wife Charlie, who led the front of house team.

He adds: "The produce within the Midlands is fantastic. The wild food here is second to none with lots of mushrooms, herbs and fruits right on our doorstep."

The new incarnation of the Epi pop-up in Birmingham will open on Monday at the Kitchen Garden Cafe, which was previously used for a pop-up event by Claire Hutchings, a former finalist on the BBC's Masterchef the Professionals.
