Colmore Business District has always been the hub for great bars and restaurants in Birmingham and now it’s going to get even better with the launch of Zen Metro on Cornwall Street.
Based on the site of the old Metro Bar and Grill – the restaurant will be launching a new menu serving great Thai food from July 1st.
Having been taken over by Paul Bassi and Pawan Kenth’s Brandasia Group in 2015, the iconic venue has been refurbished and will be taking a new direction offering a quality offering for its regular business clientele.
After a £250,000 investment, the 100-seater venue has now been transformed into a sophisticated Thai restaurant complete with a blossom tree centrepiece, emulating a luxurious south-eastern vibe. Guests can enjoy Metro by Day and Zen by Night.
There is a glassed private dining room too that seats up to 20 people, where you can enjoy dinner and a quality wine list or liven up the night with some divine Thai inspired cocktails.
This iconic bar is the sister restaurant to award winning Asha’s on Newhall Street, with Jaimon George at the helm. As you would expect from his team, they will be offering exemplary service with an eclectic range of traditional and modern Thai dishes created by Head Chef Shailender Kothiyal, who has spent several years in Thailand learning the cuisine.
Pawan Kenth of Brandasia said : “Metro has always been immensely popular with property, banking and legal professionals. Great deals have been done here over the past 20 years and we want to continue to make the place great. Birmingham’s hospitality landscape is always changing but Zen Metro will always be part of that and I know our regulars will be proud of how Zen Metro looks today.”
Now, the business district can’t wait to enjoy the new glow from Zen Metro.
