What they say:
Run by the former manager of the Lord Clifden, Sarah Thornton, Fishylicious brings a taste of the Great British Seaside to Birmingham in the form of gluten-free fish and chips. Opened in a bright blue building in the Jewellery Quarter, Fishylicious has artwork designed by local artist Temper on the doors, beach-shack toilets and a huge outside eating area. Fish and chips are served in the traditional paper and visitors can choose between poaching, grilling or frying their fish.
What we say:
It's fair to say that Birmingham isn't the first place you think of when it comes to seaside fish and chips, which makes the opening of Fishylicious all the more exciting. The restaurant's decor is seriously cool - with a giant mural by street artist Temper and bright blue walls, you might just forget you're in the Jewellery Quarter. While fish and chips might not be the most original dish, Fishylicious puts a healthy new twist on dishes; batter is gluten-free, fish choices include cod, seabass and scampi and all the ice cream is homemade.
