Lost and Found Review

The Lost and Found is a stunning, botanical restaurant that was recently refurbished and reopened with a brand new menu and decor. Located in Bennets Street and Grand Central Station, in the heart of Birmingham, the restaurant sells an array of fabulous cocktails and British classics with a twist. The outside decor is deceptive from the outside. I did not realise how grand the restaurant would be inside. The waitress who served us was attentive and polite and could make a number of recommendations what to order from the cocktail and food menu. The inside interior is decadent with gorgeous chandeliers, sweeping stairways. Although the restaurant is large, it also has an upstairs seating area, it also had a cosy feel towards it. First things first, I couldn't visit without sampling a lovely cocktail starting with a penny for the cat (gin, prosecco,  lemon juice, almond syrup & cranberry juice) cocktail £8.95. My friend ordered Storm Bronte (Havana 3 yo rum, Havana club especial, passion fruit, lime juice and blood orange) £8.25.




For the starters I ordered Smoked Salmon, Gin & Tonic Pickled Cucumber, Lemon Cream Cheese and Malted Brown Bloomer £8.50. The starters portion was incredibly generous the salmon was complimented well with the lemon cream cheese. My friend ordered the crispy salami bruschetta with whipped ricotta and fennel £7. My friend shared that the salami was perfectly cured and the portion size also generous.



For our mains, I ordered Chicken Milanese with a sourdough crumb, caper & parsley butter with a fried egg £12. I also ordered a side dish  of £3.50 fried potatoes, garlic mayonnaise & rosemary and also a Caesar salad £3.50. The Chicken Milanese was crispy on the outside and tender within. Shaped in a heart shape, the presentation was innovative. Also, the Chicken Milanese was the largest chicken breast I have ever seen or ate in my life - it was gigantic.  I'm not sure the purpose of the egg, but the caper & parsley butter added a gorgeous flavour combination.  My friend also ordered Cured Fillet of Salmon £14 served with Caesar salad topped with anchovy croutons. A side of fried potatoes was also ordered. My friend said that the salmon was fresh and light and perfectly seared.






I have a sweet tooth, so for pudding, I ordered the Warm Sticky Toffee Pudding with spiced toffee sauce and clotted cream £6. My friend ordered the  Millionaire's Shortbread £8 with dark chocolate, sticky  whisky caramel, honeycomb and a rich chocolate ice-cream. The sticky toffee pudding was rich and indulgent - exactly how a sticky toffee pudding should be. 


I would definitely visit here again, not only is this place great for cocktails but also the food is pretty amazing too.
