Glynn Purnell is Birmingham’s most celebrated chef due to his TV appearances – and the fantastic things he does with raw ingredients and a flame. His restaurant in Cornwall Street is renowned for its imaginative cuisine and has a Michelin star. If (when) a city restaurant gets a second star, it’s going here. Typical dish: lamb with braised fennel, basil emulsion and pickled cucumber.
