Twins to open new restaurant

Twin brothers from Sutton Coldfield who trained under Michelin star chefs are to open a new restaurant in the heart of Sutton Park.

Scott and Steven Lewis, having worked for many years in some of London’s top restaurants including Quaglinos, La Tante Claire and the The Halkin Hotel, will open The Bracebridge, adjacent to Bracebridge Pool.

The pair, who trained under Michel Roux Jr at infamous Le Gavroche after studying at the Birmingham College of Food (now UCB), say it’s a dream come true to take the helm of their own restaurant.

“We’re very excited to be handed the keys to the restaurant,” said Scott, who lives in Sutton Coldfield.

“It’s long been a dream of ours to open our own restaurant and we feel so proud that we’ve acquired this restaurant in such breathtaking surroundings.”

When it opens, The Bracebridge will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner, with finer dining a key element of the evening service. There will also be a separate, more casual menu for the terrace.

“We’ll offer a varied menu, with dishes influenced by our travels, and aim to create a relaxed and chic restaurant that focuses on quality food, using first-class ingredients, for an accessible price,” said Scott.

“The next few months will be exceptionally busy as we create the menus, look for the right staff and prepare for the opening of the restaurant. We’re looking forward to attracting customers who have a love of exceptional food in a perfect and unique location.”

Scott and Steven hope to create up to 30 new jobs – including eight full-time chefs.
