Nosh & Quaff, Birmingham

Last night I went to the prelaunch of Birmingham's hottest new restaurant, Nosh and Quaff. Located in the heart of Birmingham on Colmore Row (right next to the Floozie in the Jacuzzi), Nosh and Quaff promises Birmingham diners a deliciously messy lobster experience. And that my friends is exactly what we got.... #Letsgetmessy

Dave ordered the lobster - large, whole and grilled to perfection served with garlic and lemon butter sauce so you can get your dip on. Our waitress informed us that Nosh and Quaff import their lobster directly from Nova Scotia. All meaty and delicious, the butter sauce added the perfect balance of flavours. Feast your eyes on this...
I went for the Big Apple Dog - a handmade 10" smoked premium English pork kielbasa in a buttermilk bun with bacon jam and sticky caramlised onions, served with a side of sauerkraut.

The combination of smoked sausage, bacon jam, caramelised onions and American mustard was stunning. The chips were good, although I like mine a little crispier. My only complaint would be that there was a little to much bread.
We decided to share an Blooming Onion - a big crispy onion in seasoned flower served with house sauce. Now this was epic and would quite easily serve four as a side for the table to dig into. It's a nice idea and different to the usual onion rings.
Time for desert. Dave ordered the Rocky Road, which I might have helped him with a little bit. Chocolatey, gooey deliciousness with home made marshmallows, brownies, and ice cream. Get ready for the money shot....
I opted for the cheesecake. I'm a sucker for a cheesecake. Toffee apple foam layered with granola and cheesy cakey goodness. Really, really good, but I could only eat half because 1. it was basically a whole cheesecake and even though in my head I'm 6"4, I'm actually only 5"4 so there's really only so much room and 2. it was very sweet so half was plenty. Be sure to ask what the flavour of the day is as they change the toppings regularly.
We had a great time at Nosh and Quaff which is achingly trendy and another great place to add to growing cocktail and foodie scene in Birmingham.

The menu is short and to the point concentrating on a few key items that they do well. Nosh and Quaff is reasonably priced with a good selection of American beer and cocktails. As the designated driver I was on the soft drinks. If you're not a big boozer be sure to check out the Boylands Black Cherryade, which is utterly delicious and I am now totally obsessed.
