Tom Shepherd to open his own restaurant in Lichfield

Tom Shepherd will open the much-anticipated first restaurant under his own name on October 8.

Upstairs by Tom Shepherd will be a permanent home for the
chef’s contemporary cooking, and will be situated on a first-floor restaurant above his father’s jewelry shop in Lichfield, a city on the outskirts of Birmingham in Staffordshire.

“The restaurant will be a relaxed and refined space in which to experience Tom’s thoughtful and delicious modern British menus, based around beautiful seasonal ingredients and with subtle influences from Japan and East Asia,” said the team.

The flagship tasting menu is priced at £62 for five courses and £77 for seven, and includes dishes like Orkney scallop with dashi, celeriac and apple, and poached Atlantic cod with wild mussel, caviar and champagne.

A three-course lunch menu, available from Thursday-Saturday and priced at £35, includes dishes like Creedy Carver chicken with sweetcorn, Israeli couscous and leek, while a three-course Sunday lunch menu, also priced at £35, will showcase Tom’s elegant and contemporary takes on classic British comfort food, such as roast salt aged Herefordshire beef sirloin and king
oyster mushroom wellington with winter truffle.

Shepherd most recently worked at Adam’s restaurant in Birmingham, where he successfully retained the restaurant’s Michelin star and three AA rosettes during his time as head chef. His previous experience includes time spent as a development chef at the two-Michelin-starred Restaurant Sat Bains, as well as two-Michelin-starred The Latymer, under Michael Wigmore, and The Samling.
