May 2019: Harvey Perttola has taken over the stoves at this year-old venture, which now provides a more relaxed style of fine dining, offering 3 courses for £39.

Harden's says

Richard Turner (formerly of Turners at 69, RIP) returns to the Birmingham restaurant scene and fine dining with this new venture on the former site of Edmunds bistro (also RIP). The chef, who attempted to go casual with his cooking back in 2016, dishes up an 11-course tasting menu of “French-influenced modern British cuisine”.

The chef

 Aged just 24, Harvey Perttola is one of the youngest head chefs in Birmingham.

He boasts an impressive first decade in hospitality; he was originally taken on by David Colcombe, working in the kitchen at Opus restaurant in Birmingham on Friday and Saturday nights whilst still at school. He then joined Hampton Manor as Chef de Partie and Junior Sous Chef, and was part of the team who cooked for Michelin that led to the restaurant receiving a star. Following Hampton Manor, Harvey moved to Swinfen Hall as Sous Chef, before joining Maribel. 

He was a finalist and runner up in the 2017 Chef Stagiaire, as well as a finalist in the 2018 British Culinary Federation Young Chef of the Year.

He joins following Maribel's decision to part ways with Richard Turner, who launched the restaurant in May last year.
