Chef Glynn Purnell has opened the doors of Purnell’s, his Michelin-starred restaurant in Birmingham, to welcome guests into the newly refurbished space, following a two-week closure to install the new look. glynnThe new design visually still maintains a sense of chef Glynn’s urban and industrial Birmingham background whilst also embracing a palette of warm tones creating a more lavish finish to the restaurant, matching the sophistication of the cuisine. A newly installed slot window now allows diners to view the action and excitement of the kitchen and see Glynn and his team at work. In the bar a section of the floor has been lifted and replaced with a zig-zag motif carpet, adding vibrancy to the room. Guests can enjoy an aperitif on the high-backed armchairs or plush red sofa, creating a cosy ‘living-room’ feel to contrast with the concrete design wallpaper that now covers the back wall. A new grand, panelled mahogany door leads to the main restaurant space. Diners walk through an intimate wine storage passage with bespoke oak wine racks, and a rustic collection of jam-jar lights that mirror the recollection of childhood in Glynn’s food. The main dining room boasts an impressive wall covering, with a large-scale pattern in mulberry and ruby tones. The warm shades and new banquette seating evoke a relaxing atmosphere and aim to prepare and soothe guests into the dining experience that awaits. The previously plain carpet has been replaced by a smart pinstripe design, with a background of steel and slate that is broken up by jewel-like flashes of maroon and purple. Guests at Purnell’s can expect what Glynn describes as a ‘new era’ for the restaurant, with an exciting new interior to match the aspirations for what he aims to achieve in the kitchen.
