Lunch at Aria Restaurant, Hyatt Regency Hotel, Birmingham

Char-Grilled Shropshire Rib Eye Steak with Bearnaise Sauce,
 Vine Tomato, Watercress and Crispy Onions
The Aria Restaurant, Hyatt Regency, Birmingham is a wonderful place to visit for a quiet lunch away from the hustle and bustle of Saturday shopping.

Hand Cut Chips and Peas, Leeks and Broccoli
We opted for the a la carte menu, there is a good selection for all tastes.  For starters we had Roasted Plum Tomato Soup with Pesto Crostini - this was served with a little theatre which was a nice and unexpected touch - the soup bowl was served with the pesto crostini topped with a roasted tomato, the waitress then poured the piping hot soup into the bowl and served this with a choice of bread.

Unfortunately, there aren't any photographs of our soup because there was a party next to us enjoying afternoon tea and sometimes taking photographs can annoy other diners.  Once they had left their table we were able to then get busy with the camera.

Pan-Fried Fillet of Scottish Salmon with Wasabi Risotto,
 Bok Choy and an Asian Pepper Sauce
The men chose Rib Eye Steak but I was looking for something lighter and chose the Scottish Salmon.  We all agreed our meals were faultless and well presented.

Chocolate and Banana Arctic Roll with Caramel Doughnuts
Dessert was delicious too!  I glanced nosily over at the table where a group of ladies were enjoying afternoon tea and this looked amazing.  I'm now looking forward to my next visit to the Aria Restaurant but this time I would like to go for Sunday lunch, after a little retail therapy in Birmingham.

This was a private visit to Aria Restaurant, Birmingham
