The much-anticipated restaurant, The Morrie Birmingham, finally opened its door for guests in August. Although they did a not-so-secret soft opening earlier in the month, the official opening happened August 15, with a grand opening and ribbon cutting planned for early September. “We’re bringing such a unique and different option to the community and we’re so happy to bring it to life,” said Aaron F. Belen of AFB Hospitality Group. Located at 260 N. Old Woodward, The Morrie Birmingham has a menu similar to their Royal Oak location – except plan to see their Nashville Hot Chicken sandwich and burger – with a few new features, such as more vegan and vegetarian options, including Kung Pao Cauliflower and a Greek Flatbread. As far as the space goes, Belen said guests won’t even recognize it from what it was before. Expect bands from their Royal Oak location to be rocking in Birmingham as well.
