Explore Harden's - The restaurant guide created by you for you

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

Richard Turner has been a significant name on Birmingham’s culinary scene since 2007 when he launched his eponymous restaurant in Harborne which, just two years after opening, gained a Michelin-star. He is now back in the kitchen as head chef at Maribel, which has opened in the city centre, canalside location of Brindleyplace. 

Whilst most of the other chefs at his level trained with Michelin-starred names, Turner set about earning his award-winning status on his own. Largely self-taught and gaining his experience locally, he has really seen the city’s food scene evolve to what it is today.  

Receiving great support from Birmingham in previous years, Turner is determined to deliver something really special for the city and knows that Maribel is the place to do just that. Adding to that already fantastic reputation Turner already has, his role at Maribel is to create and serve the very best dishes for every customer that walks through the door.
