With February 14th just around the corner, you can really feel the love this Valentine’s Day with a romantic four-course meal at Harvey Nichols Birmingham. Birmingham’s swishest shopping destination, located in the confines of the Mailbox, is offering to sort out all your romantic culinary needs this year, and to give you and your partner a romantic night to remember.
Chef Michael Roberts has created a delicious menu designed to be shared(you can see the full menu below – complete with Vegetarian choices). All guests will also receive a complimentary winter cocktail as an aperitif.
What I really love about this experience is that you could actually treat your loved one to a special gift that will be delivered straight to your table. You can take your pick from one from one of the store’s luxury beauty counters or fashion brands and these will then be delivered straight to your table as the ultimate Valentine’s surprise. (You discuss your requirements with the Espresso Café team beforehand.)
The Valentine’s Day menu will be served from 6pm-10pm (last booking at 9pm) on Friday February 14, priced at £45 per couple. Booking is essential, you can make your reservation by calling the store on 0121 616 6028. I think this is a lovely way to spend the most romantic night of the year, and with the glamorous Malmaison hotel right next door, you could extend your night with an overnight stay.
